The Divinely Unifying Message of the Bible

In this blast from the past, J. Warner discussed the reliability of the Bible as he examines the unifying theme of the Bible. How does the Bible answer the three most important questions related to "worldview"? Is there a single message that spans the Old and New Testament? Does the unity of the Biblical message provide us with any evidence related to the origin of the Bible?

Are There Contradictions in the Easter Account?

In this blast from the past, J. Warner Wallace interviews Steven Kingsley, author of “The Easter Answer”. As a layperson, Kingsley provides a response to atheist Dan Barker’s “Easter Challenge”. Are there inherent internal contradictions in the Easter accounts found in the Gospels? Are these contradictions a proof that the Christian claims related to the Resurrection are false? We’ll examine the “Easter Challenge” and Steven Kinsley’s “Easter Answer” in this edition of the show. For more information about the case for the Resurrection of Jesus from the perspective of a detective, see J. Warner’s Easter tract, ALIVE.

What Would Our World Be Like Without Faith?

In this blast from the past, J. Warner Wallace examines the impact that Christian believers have had on our world and the impact that theistic faith has on culture. While many "new atheists" argue that belief in God is "not good" for our society, the truth is just the opposite. Believers have contributed to our culture in ways that are often taken for granted and our country was founded in Christian principles held by theistic believers. J. Warner describes four central Christian beliefs that have helped to shape our society in a positive way. For more information about the cumulative case for the existence of God, see J. Warner’s latest book, God’s Crime Scene.
