Description

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.

  • Eye Opener!!

    When I started reading this book I was a Detective for 6 years, I had faith but not much knowledge of the Bible, I felt stuck in a world where everyone lied and were guilty. This book was the eye opener I needed to bring me back to the world I want to live in. I have since been promoted to Sergeant in the Patrol Division and feel like this was my path to move into my second phase. I can now try to help people on the front end before they get to far gone. This book is amazing, I just bought Cold Case Christianity for kids for my son. Life long fan.

    I've been agnostic since I was 7. I'm now 35 and this book has convinced me that the Gospels are true. I still have a lot of learning to do. But, I will be learning from the stand point of a believer. While I can not confirm that everything in the bible is true, I believe that enough of it is true to use it as a religious foundation. Luckily, this book was a fairly easy and very intriguing read. One part of the book I did not agree with was about transcendent moral truth. The author stated "the existence of transcendent moral truth is best explained by the existence of god." I don't believe we have transcendent moral values. I think it is our upbringing or personality because some people simply don't have it. I bought this book in e format and now I want to buy a dozen copies to share with others that doubt.
