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.
Any additional comments?
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!<br/><br/>I am a student of truth where ever I find it...science 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 time...it continues to grow on me. These positions are tough in our sound bite self righteous culture.<br/><br/>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.

Essential reading for the Christian apologist. The way that Wallace relates police techniques for gathering and evaluating evidence to biblical evidence makes this an easy book to read. I especially liked the Chain of Custody chapters that explain biblical evidence that is not known by most Christians today.

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.

Where does Cold-Case Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Having just read "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel, I found this to be much the same. J Warner Wallace takes a similar approach to Lee Strobel in answering questions around the bible story. The book mainly focuses on investigating the authenticity of the accounts given in the New Testament.
Would you recommend Cold-Case Christianity to your friends? Why or why not?
If they were avid apologetics readers it is a fine book, but if they want a single book to help them respond to common attacks against Christianity, this book isn't it. I would even recommend "The Case for Christ" before this on.

A great book. My husband and I have listened to this together and plan to hear it again. We are both believers in the Bible and Christ followers so I am excited books like this are written. I would recommend it to anyone who has doubts. Since Jim Wallace is a detective he uses those techniques to explore the validity of the Bible. He does a great job.

I liked how the author organized the facts and objectively put it up with sound reasoning to build a case for the Gospel. He related it to his murder cases and how he use evidences in court.

Excellent book for those who realize that the opposite of faith is not ignorance, but unbelief. This author helps us to know how to think through and share the case for Christ. When considering all the evidence, believing is the only truly reasonable conclusion.

Really interesting to see how court room techniques apply to the bible, this book has really inspired me to dig deeper myself
I enjoyed how the author used his life as a detective to investigate the truth about Christianity. Really engaging, and helped me to think more deeply about circumstantial evidence, how the Gospel writers inadvertently corroborate each other, the strength of the historical text, how the early church fathers played their part in preserving the truth in the transmission of the text and much more. Listened to the book, but I think I will also purchase a physical copy, well worth a read
This is a must listen to book which is gripping and exciting all together. There is so much detail and the process is like following a murder mystery except this murder has a twist because the facts show there was a resurrection.
full of detail and well illustrated .. he makes his points very well and has given me both inspiratìon and the tools I need to answer sceptics about Jesus.
I found this book very interesting and educational, a must read if your having doubts.
What did you like most about Cold-Case Christianity?
The format of the book drawing on Mr Wallace's experience in investigations was so appropriate and his methodology was sound. Those that have ears to hear would hear
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the honest and challenging approach to the points being investigated and the careful explanation of how each separate investigation was supported
Which character – as performed by Bill DeWees – was your favourite?
The whole book was superbly read
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was not moved but encouraged in my faith and have recommended it to other Christian's in leadership roles who have found it helpful
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended as a book revealing the truth to no-believers and encouraging those of faith
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. In fact I did on this occasion - twice!
Any additional comments?
I've listened to this for the second time now (& listened to it twice, back to back on this occasion). My first foray into this, was made out of curiosity. I found it interesting at that time, it was one of many Apologetics books that I was reading. <br/><br/>This time however, I was listening to it on purpose. I've also bought the book. I intend to contact Mr Wallace via his outreach programme. <br/><br/>I've also read, The Case For Christ, written by Lee Strobel. He gives the foreword. These books do 2 things:<br/>1. If you don't believe in God. If you have a problem with God as opposed to a problem with 'The Church', whichever church that may be, this book covers all of those issues. <br/>2. If you believe in God, but don't really know why, or how to say why, especially to those of your family or friends who jeer, mock, deride and sneer about Christianity; then this book will give you answers!<br/><br/>I also intend to go over this again, with the book. To highlight the facts that are relevant to my struggles/witnessing. So that, when I'm tongue tied, I am able to refer to a proven, researched, intellectual reason for my belief. Because I've found that, saying all of the good, wonderful, miraculous things that God has done for me, is insufficient for some of my godless friends. They seek to blind me with science! I am not a scientific convert, but I totally 'got' C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. He started me on the road to Apologetic Christianity and here I am, with him, Strobel and Wallace. <br/><br/>I thank God for these men. I thank God for Jesus Christ. Grace & Peace x❤️x <br/><br/>Enjoy.
I loved this book listened again to take in all the arguments that I shall used to give a reason for the hope that is in me. :-)
The author has written an excellent and approachable book. He uses his years as a murder detective well, applying the logic of the legal world to the bible, Jesus and the Christian faith.
The narrator is excellent in this production too. Worth the time and money.
