A Book to Interest Everyone! Agnostic to Christian
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. In fact I did on this occasion - twice!
Any additional comments?
I've listened to this for the second time now (& listened to it twice, back to back on this occasion). My first foray into this, was made out of curiosity. I found it interesting at that time, it was one of many Apologetics books that I was reading.
This time however, I was listening to it on purpose. I've also bought the book. I intend to contact Mr Wallace via his outreach programme.
I've also read, The Case For Christ, written by Lee Strobel. He gives the foreword. These books do 2 things:
1. If you don't believe in God. If you have a problem with God as opposed to a problem with 'The Church', whichever church that may be, this book covers all of those issues.
2. If you believe in God, but don't really know why, or how to say why, especially to those of your family or friends who jeer, mock, deride and sneer about Christianity; then this book will give you answers!
I also intend to go over this again, with the book. To highlight the facts that are relevant to my struggles/witnessing. So that, when I'm tongue tied, I am able to refer to a proven, researched, intellectual reason for my belief. Because I've found that, saying all of the good, wonderful, miraculous things that God has done for me, is insufficient for some of my godless friends. They seek to blind me with science! I am not a scientific convert, but I totally 'got' C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. He started me on the road to Apologetic Christianity and here I am, with him, Strobel and Wallace.
I thank God for these men. I thank God for Jesus Christ. Grace & Peace x❤️x

The author has written an excellent and approachable book. He uses his years as a murder detective well, applying the logic of the legal world to the bible, Jesus and the Christian faith.
The narrator is excellent in this production too. Worth the time and money.

Best apologetic I have read in a while
I enjoyed how the author used his life as a detective to investigate the truth about Christianity. Really engaging, and helped me to think more deeply about circumstantial evidence, how the Gospel writers inadvertently corroborate each other, the strength of the historical text, how the early church fathers played their part in preserving the truth in the transmission of the text and much more. Listened to the book, but I think I will also purchase a physical copy, well worth a read

fantastic book which I will return to many times.
This is a must listen to book which is gripping and exciting all together. There is so much detail and the process is like following a murder mystery except this murder has a twist because the facts show there was a resurrection.
