Book Review: J. Warner Wallace - Cold-Case Christianity

This is probably the best classical apologetic book I have read. It is interesting and informative. What sets it apart from other books on apologetics is it is written from the prospective of a homicide detective. It is like CSI meets R.C. Sproul. That is my kind of book!

I truly enjoyed this book. Each chapter consists of true crime solving stories and how the same techniques can be used to prove both the Bible and Christianity are true. He moves from the Historical Jesus to how the scriptures were preserved. He also spends time showing how the Gospels were written earlier than the Liberal would admit. He uses logic to discredit the Liberal at every turn.

Many people today see Christianity as naive and silly, but the historical faith is more than a fairy tale - it it true. There is hard evidence for it.

Some of the criticism against Christianity is our own fault. For years I have heard many well-meaning preachers say not to use your mind, it will only lead you astray. Now why would God give us a brain if we were not supposed to use it. God created logic. He never contradicts logic. When the bible say the wisdom of God is foolishness, it is saying that God is so much smarter than man that they think He is foolish because they can not understand.

Wallace truly uses his mind in this book and his writing is so good, it feels like I am watching an episode of  Castle or CSI.

This book was a great read and I highly recommend it to both new and seasoned Christians alike.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

*I received this book, free of charge, from David C Cook and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
