J. Warner Wallace on the Eric Metaxas Show

J. Warner Wallace talks with Eric Metaxas about the evidence for God’s existence and the investigative analogy of God’s Crime Scene. What is the best explanation for the evidence “inside the room” of the natural universe? Can naturalism account for what we see in the cosmos? J. Warner talks about the evidence and the most reasonable inference with Eric Metaxas, the author of Miracles and Bonhoeffer. For more information about J. Warner’s “inside” or “outside the room” investigative approach to the evidence in the universe, refer to his book, God's Crime Scene and visit www.ColdCaseChristianity.com.

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace continues his series on the virgin conception of Jesus. If the virgin conception of Jesus really happened, why didn’t Mark or Paul say anything about it? Does their silence mean the virgin conception was a late idea added to the story of Jesus? Is there any good reason to believe Mark or Paul knew about the virgin conception, and if so, why didn’t they mention it? (For more information, visit www.ColdCaseChristianity.com)

Was the Virgin Conception of Jesus Borrowed from Prior Mythologies?

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace continues his series on the virgin conception of Jesus. Was the virgin conception borrowed from ancient pagan myths?

How the Moral Evidence in the Universe Points to the Existence of God

In this episode of the Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast, J. Warner Wallace continues his six part mini-series summarizing material from his latest book, God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Investigates the Evidence For A Divinely Created Universe. J. Warner describes two pieces of “moral” evidence: the existence of objective moral truth and the existence of evil and injustice. Can these two pieces of evidence “inside the room” of the universe be explained by staying “inside the room”? This simple question helps homicide detectives determine if a death scene is a crime scene. Could the same question be applied to the evidence in the universe to determine if a cosmic “intruder” is the most reasonable inference? (For more information, visit www.ColdCaseChristianity.com)
