Publisher's Summary

You can believe because of the evidence, not in spite of it. For the first 35 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.

Comprehensive, rational, intellectually satisfying

Wow. I am stunned how solid this authors reasoning is. I picked this up mildly interested thinking it was a repackaging of the "case for..." books, but wow, I was delightfully wrong! His discussions are fascinating weaving in experiences from his detective career, but more importantly, he enumerates threads of reasoning with such precision, accuracy, and integrity of thought that I can't merely say this book was intellectually satisfying...this book is a intellectually majestic!

I am a student of truth where ever I find or faith...whatever holds up to my own honest scrutiny and I purposely keep an open mind letting reasonable new evidence in. On my journey I have have become an open follower of Jesus. I also believe in evolution, really old universe etc... I have plenty of questions about the Bible although as a massive collection of epic literature tracing the evolution of human consciousness through continues to grow on me. These positions are tough in our sound bite self righteous culture.

I've devoured all sorts of material regarding the tensions and controversy between science and faith. I've been particularly impressed by Bart Ehrman's prodigious work (against faith btw) and the powerful insights from Andy Stanley(gotta check him out) and Dr Bill Creasy, but this author brings something truly unique to this thought space. I never thought a case this strong could be made for belief. Regardless of which side of the fence you currently are on, for you who honestly search for understanding, I think you'll love the examination of evidence and the considerations of the many explanations.

May be the best apologetics book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book has some of the best apologetics on Biblical historicity and New Testament authenticity that I have ever read. Really examines the evidence as if a detective was examining a crime.

What did you like best about this story?

To me one of the best parts was the part about the early Church Fathers. Who they were and what they did. Although not exhaustive, it is important to note and have not found it in other books. We hear about the Apostles in other books, but here a bit more explicit, and why and how the gospel accounts are a bit different from each other.

Any additional comments?

One of the best books in proving the Case for Christianity that I haver read. May be the best at handling the document apologetics. Highly recommend this book. It should be read by every Christian kid entering college.
