All Christians, but especially ones in college, must know what they believe and why they believe it if they have any hope of surviving with their faith intact….I think of college almost like an atheistic ambush. The Christians are walking in totally unaware of the danger until it is too late and the damage has already been done.
— J. Warner Wallace, Forensic Faith: A Homicide
Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith
Yes, Hank! It’s a travesty that many young Christians are abandoning the faith simply because they haven’t been equipped to know and defend biblical truth. Please use my gift to equip students and Christians of all walks with the forensic faith now needed in a secular world that is increasingly hostile to Christian faith. And please send me Cold-Case Christianity.
Written by an L. A. County homicide detective and former atheist, Cold-Case Christianity examines the claims of the New Testament using the skills and strategies of a hard-to-convince criminal investigator.
Christianity could be defined as a “cold case”: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs. Including gripping stories from his career and the visual techniques he developed in the courtroom, Wallace uses illustration to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity.
A unique apologetic that speaks to readers’ intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity.
J. Warner Wallace is a cold case homicide detective, a missions leader, and a church planter. As a result of his work with cold cases, Wallace has been featured on numerous television programs including Dateline, FOX News and Court TV. Wallace’s visual presentations in the courtroom have revolutionized how capital offense trials are presented in Los Angeles County and across the country.A vocal atheist for many years, Wallace is now an apologist for Christianity with a master’s degree in theology. He and his wife have four children and live in southern California.
