A cold-case detective helps you rethink and share your Christian beliefs.
J. Warner Wallace has asked this question in churches across America over the past several years, and the answer he gets is often disappointing; it’s almost always rooted in some sort of personal, subjective experience. As a community, we Christians aren’t typically prepared to make the case for why we believe Christianity is true from the objective evidence of history, philosophy or science. Worse yet, many of us don’t think we have any obligation to do so.
In J. Warner’s first two books, he made the case for God’s existence (God’s Crime Scene) and the case for Christianity (Cold-Case Christianity). In Forensic Faith, J. Warner completes the trilogy by making the case for… making the case! In Forensic Faith, J. Warner helps readers understand why it’s important to defend what they believe, and provides them with a unique template to help them become effective “Christian Case Makers.” Forensic Faith will help readers:
—understand why they, as Christians, have a duty to defend the truth
—develop a training strategy to master the evidence for Christianity
—learn how to employ the techniques of a detective to discover new insights from God’s Word
—become a better communicators by learning the skills of professional case makers
With real-life detective stories, fascinating strategies, and biblical insights, J. Warner hopes to teach readers the daily cold-case investigative disciplines they can apply in their lives as believers. Forensic Faith is an engaging, fresh look at what it means to be a Christian.
My thoughts: This book is great! I love that this book is apologetics with a different twist, since it is written by a homicide detective. I love how the book is set up and that it shows just how important it is to be able to know how to present our case for Christianity. This would make a great gift for a high school age student to read before going out on their own. I highly recommend it!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
