What does Forensic Statement Analysis (FSA) have to do with the Gospels? More than you might think! Most of us are familiar with the archaeological evidence for the reliability of the Gospels, yet few of us have encountered (or analyzed) the forensic evidence. And that’s what makes J. Warner Wallace’s new book “Cold Case Christianity” special.
Using this relatively modern branch of science, Wallace (a former atheist) teaches readers to effectively apply the skills of a police detective to the Gospel accounts. From circumstantial evidence to the chain of custody to conspiracy theories, Wallace uses real life cases to walk his readers through the steps necessary to secure a conviction in a cold-case homicide… then teaches them to apply the same standards and procedures to the case for Christ.
Throughout the pages of this entertaining volume, you’ll learn how detectives harmonize eyewitness accounts, determine the reliability of their witnesses, and filter out biased testimony. You’ll travel with Wallace to the scenes of robberies and homicides as you learn to collect and assemble enough evidence to result in a conviction… and develop a solid case for the Gospel.
Written clearly and concisely, the book is as entertaining as it is informative. Wallace’s skill as a story teller is surpassed only by his common sense approach to apologetics. “Cold Case Christianity” is an excellent primer for anyone interested in presenting a solid case for their faith in the Bible and the God it portrays.
