Davic C. Cook Books is giving away the Cold-Case Christianity by Jim Wallace. He was a former L.A. County homicide detective and former atheist who embarks in a journey to disapprove Christianity. In his investigative journey, he uses the same skills and strategies to resolve the criminal investigation of the the cold cases. All his investigative findings and evidences lead him to abandon his atheism and believe the gospel accounts of Jesus Christ.
Christianity could be defined as a “cold case”: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs. Including gripping stories from his career and the visual techniques he developed in the courtroom, Wallace uses illustration to examine the powerful evidence that validates the claims of Christianity.
A unique apologetic that speaks to readers’ intense interest in detective stories, Cold-Case Christianity inspires readers to have confidence in Christ as it prepares them to articulate the case for Christianity. (http://www.dccebooks.com/products/cold-case-christianity)
