"Forensic Faith" by J. Warner Wallace

Last year, I read J. Warner Wallace's Cold-Case Christianity for Kids. Even though it's written for kids, I loved it, and I learned a lot, too. So when I heard Wallace had a new book coming out, Forensic Faith, I knew I wanted to read it.

A cold-case detective helps you rethink and share your Christian beliefs.

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 Wallace'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.

Forensic Faith is exactly the kind of book Christians should be reading! Author J. Warner Wallace explains why it's important for Christians to be able to defend what we believe, but he doesn't stop there—he shows how the investigative techniques he used as a homicide detective can be applied to investigating our faith (or any claims, really). He then explains how to effectively communicate to others what we believe.

One thing I really appreciate about this book is that Wallace isn't just telling readers what to do but also how to do it. Everything is laid out in a logical manner, yet the writing is also very interesting. There's also a very helpful list of resources at the end of the book, as well as a list of questions (in the "Targeted Training" chapter) to help the reader get an idea of where he/she stands as a "Christian Case-Maker."

I really enjoyed this book, and I'm sure it's one I'll reference as time goes on. 5 stars.
