In my time working with students, I have found that many students have a passion for God yet few could defend Christianity. They often know what they believe, but they don’t know why they believe it! It is for this reason that Coffeehouse Questions exists. I want to be able to help students understand why they believe what they believe and help them answer difficult objections to their faith. This is also the reason that J. Warner Wallace has written his newest book, Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith. Forensic Faith is a fantastic book that is easy to understand and will help you


  • embrace your duty to defend the truth;
  • devise a training strategy to master the evidence for Christianity;
  • learn how to employ the techniques of a detective to discover new insights from God’s word; and
  • become a better communicator by learning skills of professional case makers.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it. It includes insight that will deepen your faith and give you the confidence to talk with your family, friends, and strangers.

J. Warner Wallace’s other books include Cold Case Christianity and God’s Crime Scene. He is a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, serves as an adjunct professor of Christian apologetics at Biola University and a faculty member at Summit Ministries. Jim also made an appearance in God’s Not Dead 2 which you can see here. Listen below to my two-part interview with J. Warner Wallace as we discuss the importance of being a Christian case maker.
