The Cold-Case Christianity Podcast

Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

The Stand to Reason “Please Convince Me” Podcast is hosted by J. Warner Wallace, cold-case detective and author of Cold-Case Christianity (A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels). We examine the case for the Christian Worldview from an evidential perspective and do our best to tell it like it is. With the rules of evidence clearly in mind, we examine the case for the existence of God, the reality of dualism, the reliability of the Biblical text, and the deity of Jesus. Along the way we also take a critical look at the nature of the Christian Church in America today. Why are so many young people leaving the church? Why are so many older Christians apathetic and unengaged? Why do so few Christians understand what they believe, and why do even fewer understand WHY they believe it? Join us each week as we sort through the evidence for the Christian Worldview and examine the life of the Church. Please visit our websites at www.STR.org and www.ColdCaseChristianity.com.
