Book Review - Forensic Faith


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.


J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective who has been featured on Dateline, Fox News, and Court TV. A former atheist, he is the author of "Cold-Case Christianity" and "God's Crime Scene." Wallace has a master's degree in theology and lives in California with his wife and four children.

This book had so much great information put together in such an interesting and compelling way! I found myself not wanting to put it down because it pulled me in and grabbed my attention from the beginning to end.

The author explains Christianity in the same methodical way he would solve a case as a homicide detective. I really found this interesting and, I think if this book were presented to an atheist or someone who had doubts about God, they would be so drawn in, they would not be able to come away from this book unchanged. As a life-long Christian, I learned new things and had a deeper understanding of my faith in God.

As a former atheist, Mr. Wallace, has written this book from the point of view of coming to his own faith through a methodical, logical process. He doesn't diminish faith but proves why it's so important. I really loved how he explains things in such a clear manner that makes total sense and gives us real information for sharing with others.

I read through this book fairly quickly but now am going back through it to really savor and ponder. There are a lot of great things the author recommends we do that I didn't have time to do before but, the book is so good, I now want to go back and really dig deeper.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
