From Atheism to Christianity: A Homicide Detective's Journey With J. Warner Wallace—Alisa Childers Podcast #10
Ever since I read Cold Case Christianity, by J. Warner Wallace, I've been fascinated by his story. As a committed atheist and Los Angeles cold case homicide detective, Jim realized he had never examined the evidence for Christianity with the same techniques he used to solve his cold cases. So he set out to solve the most important cold case in history—the truth of the claims made by the disciples of Jesus of Nazareth. Do the gospel accounts of Jesus' life qualify as actual eye-witness testimony? Jim tells us all about it on today's podcast.

I have listened to a number of interviews and podcast by Jim. This one is in particularly good. Thank you Alisa.
J.W.Wallace seems genuine, and I guess he has a unique approach which some people find engaging. So, that's good.

Thanks Ben. Just curious what you mean by "modern scholarship." The vast majority of scholars (even the most secular and liberal scholars) will grant that at least parts of the Gospels report historical events (even if they challenge who wrote them and that everything in them is true....)
Sure, that's definitely true. You can probably count on one hand the number of credentialed scholars who reject altogether the Gospel narratives. But as should be equally clear, a large number of scholars reject the notion that the Gospels were written by eyewitnesses, or accurately report eyewitness testimony.

Alisa, you never responded to Ben's last comment specifically about eye witness testimony and I'm curious about that. Thanks
