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
Can We Trust the Gospels, Even If They Were Transmitted Orally?

Jim returns to the microphone this week and continues to defend the notion that the New Testament gospels are reliable eyewitness accounts. Jim talks about objections related to the historicity of Jesus (and pre-existing mythologies), and the concern that the important details of the eyewitness accounts were lost during the time they were transmitted orally.

Les Misérables and the Death Grip of Works-Based Worldviews

In this podcast, Jim examines the contrast between “grace” and “law” as illustrated in Les Misérables. Jim also talks about the dating of John’s gospel and the absence of a description of the Temple Destruction, the value of the courtroom as an analogy for determining truth, the Biblical definition of “faith” and the problem of “Theistic Evil”.
