The Cold-Case Christianity Podcast
The Cold-Case Christianity Podcast is hosted by J. Warner Wallace, cold-case detective, Adjunct Professor of Apologetics at Biola University and author of Cold-Case Christianity (A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels). Jim examines the case for the Christian Worldview from an investigative, evidential perspective. With the rules of evidence clearly in mind and over 25 years’ experience as an investigator, Jim examines the case for the existence of God, the reality of dualism, the reliability of the Biblical text, and the deity of Jesus. Join us each week as Jim sorts through the evidence for the Christian Worldview, and please visit our website at www.ColdCaseChristianity.com.

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner makes a case for the reasonable nature of the Christian Worldview. Does Christianity require blind faith? Are we to accept the claims of Christianity without evidence or even in spite of the evidence? Or are we called, as Christians, to place our trust in Jesus because of the evidence? Jim also examines the way Jesus responded to those who had doubts. (For more information, visit www.ColdCaseChristianity.com
