A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels



Year written


How do you convince a skeptic of the validity of the Gospels' claims about Jesus? You put an evidence-seeking homicide detective on the case! This updated and expanded edition of Wallace's bestseller now includes 250 fresh illustrations, cross-examination questions, a revised foreword from Lee Strobel, and the author's testimony of his conversion from atheism to faith.

See slides & overview from J Warner Wallace and Dayton Apologetics used by numerous churches around the Miami Valley.

About the Author:

J. Warner Wallace makes the case for a more reasonable, evidential view of the Christian faith using the skills and principles he has developed over his career as a cold-case homicide detective. He will not only examine the evidence for the reliability of the New Testament manuscripts, but will also paint a picture of the incredible impact that Jesus of Nazareth has had on history and what we could know about him even if we didn’t have any of the New Testament documents at all.

Mr. Wallace is a Dateline-featured cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author. He continues to consult on cold-case investigations while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. He is also an adjunct professor of apologetics at Talbot School of Theology (Biola University) and Southern Evangelical Seminary, and a faculty member at Summit Ministries. J. Warner became a Christ-follower at the age of thirty-five after investigating the claims of the New Testament gospels using his skill set as a detective. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Gateway Seminary.
