Journalist's Life Changed

Lee Strobel was an atheistic journalist with the Chicago Tribune. When his wife became a Christian, he set out on a skeptical investigation of the Christian faith—but ended up becoming a Christian instead. God changed his life, as he wrote about in his book The Case for Easter

Over time my character, values, attitude, priorities, worldview, philosophy, and relationships began to change—for the good. 

So much so that a few months after I became a follower of Jesus, our five-year-old daughter, Alison—who had previously only known a father who had been profane, angry, verbally harsh, drunken, and all too often absent—walked up to my wife and said, "Mommy, I want God to do for me what he's done for Daddy." 

In effect, she was saying, "If this is what God does to a human being, then that's what I want for me." Even at that early age, she experienced an authentic spiritual transformation that shines through her life to this day
