J. Warner WallaceAre you local to the Chicago area?  Would you like to become a better Christian Case-Maker?  Are you a skeptic looking for answers to some of life’s toughest questions?

Our goal is to equip believers and engage skeptics using evidence, logic, & reason.

Excerpt from the back cover:

For the first thirty-five years of his life, J. Warner Wallace was a devout atheist. After all, how can you believe a claim made about an event in the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence?

Then Wallace realized something. Christianity was a lot like the cold cases he solved as a homicide detective—cold cases that turned out to have enough evidence, eyewitnesses, and records to solve. When Wallace applied his skills as an expert detective to the assertions of the New Testament, he came to a startling realization: the case for Christianity was as convincing as any case he’d ever worked as a detective.

You Can Believe Because of the Evidence, Not in Spite of It.

From the author:

Cold-Case Christianity will help you understand the power of circumstantial evidence, drawing on 25 years of law enforcement experience (15 years spent working Cold-Case Homicides). I’ll share my personal journey from atheism to Christian certainty while describing the essential components of eyewitness reliability, abductive reasoning and the rules of evidence. You’ll come away with fresh insight and the ability to articulate what you already intuitively understand from your cultural familiarity with homicide investigations. You’ll also be able to apply this renewed understanding to the case for Christianity.

Cold-Case Christianity

Here is a review I posted on Amazon for “Cold-Case Christianity” by J. Warner Wallace:

Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace is a unique and fresh new take on Christian Apologetics. As an atheist turned Christian, he makes a case for the eyewitness reliability of the gospels and does it very well.

I’m a regular follower of J. Warner Wallace through his “Please Convince Me” podcast and have been for several years now. With that said, I was already very familiar with just about everything his book had to offer, but that did not detract from how captivated I was by this book. Each chapter starts out with a real life story from a past case as a homicide detective. Then he takes the principles and techniques used within that case and relate them to the examination of the New Testament in a very practical way.

This book, along with Norman Geisler and Frank Turek’s book “I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be an Atheist”, are the first two apologetic books I recommend to Christians and Non-Christians alike. It’s great for the open minded atheist or agnostic as well as to encourage and strengthen the faith of the believer. It’s a great resource to give away or to have on your shelf. I hope to see many more books by J. Warner. Keep it up Jim!
