Forensic Faith will show you the importance of becoming a case maker for Christianity, and it will help you develop a strategy to do so in a way that is both compelling and evidentially true. You’ll find real detective stories that will inspire you and teach you how to fulfill your duty as a Christian.
This book is absolutely amazing!
I’m grateful beyond measure by James Warner Wallace’s ministry. His commitment to equip believers to make the case for Christianity will never cease to inspire me.
Forensic Faith did 2 things for me: 1) Help me realize how important it is for people around me that I assume my role as a case maker 2) Open my eyes to see all the evidence I still need to master. I don’t know it all. I need to keep studying.
This book explains what, in my opinion, are very complex principles, but in a way that anybody can understand and relate to, which is a sign that the author really knows what he’s talking about.
The urgency, passion, and commitment you feel while reading is almost tangible. This generation, maybe more than any other, needs us to love God with all our mind, and that’s exactly what I feel compelled to do now.
Also, I think this book gives us hope, it shows us that it is possible to help others overcome their doubts and lead them to faith. Questions don’t have to overwhelm us or dimish us. In fact, they can be the very source God uses to bring others back to Him.
Long story short: I loved it, but not in the way that would make me scream for a while and then forget the whole thing, but in a quiet and subtle way that will leave an impression in my heart forever.
**I received a copy of this book from David C. Cook through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
There are so many! I can’t believe I’ll have to choose. Well, let’s see:
+ «On those days when God feels far away, or at those times when your doubts seem stronger than His voice, I hope these books will remind you that Christianity is true, in spite of whatever you’re going through.»
+ «The evidence and science haven’t “said” anything; the evaluators have been doing all the talking.»
+ «What someone didn’t say is often more important than what they did say.»
+ «Certainly, faith involves more than our brains, but it does not involve less.» John Stonestreet
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author. He was a conscientious and vocal atheist until the age of thirty-five, when he took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
