Billings Christian School Education Foundation Welcomes You to the 2020 Legacy Dinner & Auction Benefiting Billings Christian School and Featuring Best-Selling Author Lee Strobel!

Lee StrobelBillings Christian School Education Foundation is thrilled to announce that apologist and best-selling author Lee Strobel will speak in Billings at the Red Lion Convention Center on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 for the Billings Christian School Legacy Dinner & Auction.

Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, is a New York Times best-selling author of more than forty books and curricula that have sold fourteen million copies in total. He has been described in the Washington Post as “one of the evangelical community’s most popular apologists.”

He was educated at the University of Missouri (Bachelor of Journalism degree) and Yale Law School (Master of Studies in Law degree). He was a journalist for fourteen years at The Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, winning Illinois’ highest honors for investigative reporting and public service journalism from United Press International.

After probing the evidence for Jesus for nearly two years, Lee became a Christian in 1981. He subsequently became a teaching pastor at three of America’s largest churches and hosted the national network TV program Faith Under Fire. In addition, he taught First Amendment law at Roosevelt University and was Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University.

In 2017, Lee’s spiritual journey was depicted in an award-winning motion picture, The Case for Christ, which showed in theaters around the world. The movie is still on Netflix. Lee won national awards for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, and The Case for Grace. His latest book is The Case for Miracles.
