Pure Flix announces a partnership with Sandoval Studios and New York Times best-selling author Lee Strobel to exclusively stream “The Case for Heaven,” a documentary that investigates Near-Death Experiences and presents evidence for Heaven and Hell. “The Case for Heaven” will be available on Pure Flix on July 15th.

From the author and former atheist turned Christian apologist who investigated "The Case for Christ,"Lee Strobel was inspired to explore the evidence for an afterlife and how to address mankind’s biggest fear: death. After his own personal close-call with death, Strobel used an evidence-based and systematic approach to write “The Case for Heaven” book that inspired this new film.

“Viewers will be surprised, captivated and encouraged by this beautiful and compelling film. It will dispel many of their misconceptions about the afterlife,” said Lee Strobel. “I’m thrilled with the enthusiastic reception the documentary has received so far – and I can’t wait for an even wider audience to experience it.”

The Case for Heaven” features interviews with best-selling author John Burke, world-renowned pastor Francis Chan, the late Evangelist Luis Palau and more.

“This film has something to say that has clearly resonated with audiences who have questions, doubts or fears about the afterlife,” said director Mani Sandoval. “We look forward to inviting a wider audience to this journey with us as we explore the remarkable evidence and human experiences about what's to come beyond this life.”

Executive Producer Gil Sandoval had this to say: "We are pleased to partner with the largest faith-based streaming platform and home to additional content inspired by Lee Strobel’s books. Lee Strobel proving the existence of heaven utilizing facts and not simply our emotions is sure to inspire and fascinate Pure Flix members.”
