In crime investigation, there are four causes of death, and only one of them requires an intruder. Murders typically involve suspects external to the crime scene. If there's evidence of an outside intruder, homicide detectives have to prepare for a chase.
Join J. Warner Wallace, former atheist, seasoned cold-case detective, and popular national speaker, as he tackles his most important case...with you on the jury! J. Warner examines eight critical pieces of evidence in the "crime scene" of the universe to determine if they point to a Divine Intruder. If you have ever wondered if something (or someone) outside the natural realm created the universe and everything in it, this is the case for you.

I have never bothered to write a book review, but this book was so flimsily argued that I felt compelled to let others know not to waste their money. The author felt comfortable dissecting the frontiers of knowledge in biology, physics, chemistry, and artificial intelligence, and then stating basically that these insights do not provide evidence for the origin of the universe without God. To me, it seems that they provide much stronger evidence that what he considers "evidence," which amounts to logical deductions and unsubstantiated inferences that God must be uncaused, immaterial, atemporal, and originating from outside of the known universe. Does that provide YOU with any clarity? Basically, he does not provide evidence that God created the universe whatsoever, and his arguments are basically "God-of-the-gaps" in nature. As Neil deGrasse Tyson noted, such arguments imply that "God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance that's getting smaller and smaller and smaller as time goes on." Furthermore, I find it presumptuous that the author feels qualified enough to be a spokesperson for cutting-edge biology, psychology, artificial intelligence, and physics research - in areas where investigators always face a gray wall - and to comment on the limitations in these fields. I mean, after all, the guy has no formal training in any of these areas, best I can tell. If you do find this book compelling, then the author is just preaching to the choir anyway. Books like this, with such flaccid reasoning, rob me of faith, rather than increase it.
