Critics Consensus: The Case for Christ shouldn't be dismissed, but like many faith-based productions, it's better at preaching to the choir than reaching the unconverted.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Case for Christ is a faith-based drama that deals with issues/topics including marriage, family dysfunction, and the death of a parent; gangs and shootings are also discussed. Crucifixion is described in detail (from a medical perspective) and illustrated via painting details, and death is also discussed. A married couple kisses, and there are brief references to prostitution. Characters drink, sometimes to excess (one drives drunk on at least one occasion), and there's some cigarette smoking.
