Homicide detective J. Warner Wallace applies ten common rules of evidence to make the case for Christianity in this completely updated and expanded edition of the apologetic classic that has changed lives around the world.

A devout atheist, J. Warner Wallace couldn’t imagine believing in the Christian faith—until he applied the same step-by-step investigative process he utilized in his work as a homicide detective to the case for Christianity. In light of the ten common rules of evidence that he’d used to solve crimes throughout his career, Wallace realized he could no longer deny the truth of Jesus Christ. And his life was never the same.

A proven bestseller, Cold-Case Christianity shows:

  • How detective skills help us determine the historical reliability of the Bible
  • The role that evidence plays in the Christian definition of faith
  • Why the gospel eyewitness accounts demonstrate the historicity of Jesus
  • How rules of evidence help make the case for the proof of Christianity

This updated and expanded edition of Cold-Case Christianity includes:

  • 300 new illustrations and graphic elements
  • An updated introduction including the author’s testimony of moving from atheism to faith
  • Completely updated content and page design
  • A new afterword responding to commonly asked questions about the reliability of the New Testament

An ideal book for spiritual seekers, as well as Christians who want to articulate the case for Jesus and the reliability of the Bible, this engaging exploration of Christianity answers the most important questions regarding the validity of the Bible.

“When my faith was in crisis, I needed evidence to convince me that Christianity was true. During that time, I read Cold-Case Christianity three times and it was instrumental in giving me confidence in the reliability of the Gospels. This new updated and re-illustrated version is even better! As a cold-case homicide detective, J. Warner Wallace applies his investigative skills to make the evidence accessible and understandable to everyone. I am so personally thankful for this book and recommend it to everyone who is open to discovering the case for Christianity.”

“...Carefully reading and studying this book will turn you into a catalyst for change in a world desperately in need of faith. Though Jim is definitely one of a kind, the lessons taught in Cold-Case Christianity can be grasped and retold by anyone desiring to bring the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ to others.”
