Dr. Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose-Driven Life" and pastor of Saddleback Church
For the first thirty-five 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."

This has been a life changing read for me. Like the author I am a retired detective, I am therefore familiar with his investigative techniques and most definitely cynical and skeptical of all that I have been told about faith. Truth is, I used to have it and I wanted it back and like many people, simply did not have the tools to defend Christianity against the now fashionable 'zealot atheist', eventually the faith I used to hold so dear became eroded by the onslaught of single dimensional thinking. This book and this book alone changed all that.. a source I can trust, a methodology of thinking I can respect and identify with and the fact that it appeared before me on my computer on the very day that I was pondering these things. It has led me to the works of CS Lewis and others and for everything Mr Wallace... I thank you and the Lord.

This is like Who Moved the Stone by Frank Peretti which I found very convincing many years ago. However this author is a detective not a lawyer and so he picks up different threads of evidence and makes a great presentation of the facts about the Crucifixion, non Christian sources and other evidence.
Very insightful. I recommend it very much.
What I particularly liked was that he shows the evidence and doesn't try to make it fit a conclusion but gives other possible conclusions helping you to make your own mind up.
In passing he also explains some of the differences between the gospels.
A great book!

I have been a Christian for just over 10 years and have read loads of apologetic books, many have been helpful but to be honest a lot of them are just the same thing but with a different cover. The author of Cold-case Christianity really opened my eyes to things I had never even thought of e.g Mark writing his Gospel on behalf of Peter. It is such an interesting book that kept saying "wow" everytime I learned something new. This book is a great asset for your evangelism toolbox

Let's deal with the negatives first. If you're looking for something that proves the authenticity of the gospels, forget it. Some (and only some) of the arguments are weak and it would be easy for a skeptic to pick holes in them. As a homicide detective, he seems to view defence attorneys as being antagonistic against known truth and although he aknowledges that they might believe their clients are innocent, he writes as if they are always in the wrong and that the prosecution is always in the right; it comes across as arrogance. Having said that, I'm enjoying this book and learning something from it. With his training and experience, the author gives a fresh look at the gospels from a forensice perspective and finds them consistent with what would be expected if their message were true. His own journey of faith coming through this analytical approach (which Is about where I am up to in reading it now) is also fascinating. There's one slight paradox: if the gospel message is true, then the case is not cold at all.

I found this a great introductory read for someone not that familiar with the historicity of the gospels and the evidence supporting them. Although there isn't a huge amount of detail on each point it gives a very good overview along with sources and further recommended reading on each issue. I think this is a great book to recommend to an open minded skeptic as it does well in tackling the current false opinion many atheists have that Christianity is based on blind faith and not on evidence.

Many Christian writers have defended their faith, but I found J. Warner Wallace's approach highly refreshing. As a man who was a skeptic, he presents his case from that point of view. Thus, he refrains from mocking skeptics for their unbelief, as is unfortunately the attitude of some Christian writers. He also provides encouragement for Christians who are trying to 'present their case' before unbelievers in a reasonable and understandable way. I would highly recommend this book to all.

Well I for one found it interesting and it caused me to question what I believe and what I already know. I did find it a bit laboured in places. It was very interesting to consider the early years of Christianity and the potential motives of the early believers / observers (Witnesses ) . This made the apostolic line of belief much more of a real issue for me. Glad I read it.

Very clear and concise writing. Exciting perspective from a hardened detective, using the tools of his trade to look afresh at Christianity. Learned a lot and enjoyed following the clues to their reasoned conclusions. Well worth the read and passing on to others.
