The book is written from the perspective of a homicide detective. In the first half of the book, Wallace sets out his approach to the Gospels through the principles that he has used and developed throughout his career. Interspersed with these principles are real-life examples of their application to 'cold cases'. Wallace also applies each principle to counter common 'problems' with the Gospel accounts and shows that, in fact, they are reasonable to believe. In the second half of the book, Wallace provides substantive answers to four questions about the Gospels using a combination of principles developed in the first half of the book. I found the book to be enjoyable to read with the right balance between narrative, research and commentary. I'd definitely recommend it to Christians or those who are sceptical about the claims of the Gospels (as the author originally was).
