The Mary Marantz Show

Apr 26, 2022

What happens after death? Arguably, this is a question that everyone has contemplated no matter their belief or religion. If you have ever wondered about the evidence for life after death then today’s episode is for you.

Today, Mary is joined by best-selling author and investigative journalist, Lee Strobel, as the two dive into Lee’s book turned documentary, “The Case for Heaven.” Inspired by his own brush with death, Lee searched for answers to the most profound questions we all have about heaven, hell, and near-death experiences. 

Today, Mary and Lee invite you to carefully investigate the knowable and respond with faith to the unknowable as the they tackle:

  • Why we often let fear drive our behavior and decision-making and how to overcome this

  • What it means to be absent from the body and present with the Lord

  • Why our heavenly father is not just a magnified version of our earthly father

  • How Lee used an investigative journalist approach to bring an analytic filter to the Christian faith 


If you are ready to be challenged, encouraged, and inspired about the entirely credible, believable, and exhilarating life to come, then make sure to tune in to today’s episode!
