with the skeptics in your life and this book will give you the
confidence to share it!"Dr. Rick Warren, author of The

"Cold-Case Christianity is a fantastic book. I wish I had this resource when I first examined the Christian faith. It would have answered many of my questions and helped set me on the track to truth."
- Josh McDowell, speaker and author of Evidence That Demands a Verdict
"What happens when an atheist cop takes the same forensic skills he uses to solve the toughest crimes--homicides with a trail that's been cold for decades--and applies them to the eyewitness testimony and circumstantial evidence for the life of Jesus of Nazareth? A fascinating new approach to the question of gospel credibility, that's what. Cold-Case Christianity is simply the most clever and compelling defense I've ever read for the reliability of the New Testament record. Case closed."
- Gregory Koukl, president of Stand to Reason and author of Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions
"Cold-Case Christianity offers a fresh approach to biblical fact-finding that actually makes apologetics fun! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the evidence that backs up the Christian faith, whether you're a skeptic, a spiritual seeker, or a committed believer. Everyone will benefit from reading J. Warner Wallace's powerful new book."-Mark Mittelberg, author of The Questions Christians Hope No One Will Ask (with answers) and coauthor of Becoming a Contagious Christian--Mark Mittelberg
