Imagine that you are veteran congressional investigator with years of experience digging into documents, probing witnesses, weighing evidence and sifting claims and counter-claims.
Would that be a good background for evaluating the credibility of the claims of Jesus Christ to be the only way to Heaven and the reliability of the Bible as the word of God? You would certainly have many of the most critical skills required for such an investigation, no?
Meet J. Warner Wallace. No, Wallace is not a former congressional investigator, but he is one of the world’s most respected experts at solving the toughest crime cases, the ones that have gone unsolved for years.
That’s why Wallace is best-known as the top “cold-case detective” on NBC’s Dateline program. “Around Dateline, we call J. Warner Wallace ‘the evidence whisperer,” says NBC’s Keith Morrison.
Wallace is often asked when he speaks on college campuses why he is a Christian. Check out this video in which Wallace answers the question. It’s well-worth your four-minutes
And by the way, if you are a congressional investigator or you work on the Hill in any position and are curious about this Jesus thing, “More Than A Carpenter” by Josh and Sean McDowell is the concise classic that answers the big questions.
