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.

Highly recommend this book to those wanting to explore the foundations of why they believe what they believe.

I think that Wallace did a good job with this book. However, it is plain that he is not a professional author. In that vein, the writing could have been clearer and better organized. But, the points made and the connections to verifiable stories made sense, and were easy to understand. What I liked the most about this book, is that it really makes it plain that we as readers and believers have no need of being scholars. It stands in the gap with other apologetic books, maybe not the best one out there, but certainly not the worst. Overall, I liked it a lot.

I believe the author to be a bit disingenuous. He wanted his readers to think of him as an unbiased witness, and using only the facts to reach a conclusion. But the reality is, he was very biased, and it was quite apparent. When debating issues, an argument is only as strong as its weakest link, and James Warner Wallace heavily pushed the Christian side of the toughest arguments, without giving their counter arguments, their fair explanation. Then he moved on, as if those tough arguments were not even in question he tried to persuade his readers by using the fact he was an investigator, as if that gives him more credence. I was very disappointed in the book

Not a fan at all. It's all over the place. Super difficult to follow. I still don't know what I was supposed to learn.
