Introduction: Before introducing J. Warner Wallace’s new book, I want to express my thankfulness and gratitude to him for his ministry. I consider J. Warner Wallace a mentor to me, as I have greatly benefited from his ministry personally as a teacher, as well as equipping me to be a more effective ambassador for Christ to the unbelievers I meet on a daily basis. His insight and methodology have been particularly helpful when presenting the Gospel to my Muslim friends regarding the reliability of the Gospels, etc. Each of James’ books; Cold-Case Christianity—A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels; God’s Crime Scene—A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe, and Forensic Faith—A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith, are essential resources for enhancing our effectiveness as Christ’s ambassadors in the cultural milieu of today.

Now, onto James’ new and upcoming book…
In this day and age of skepticism, which is extreme at times, the Bible, and particularly the New Testament is often dismissed ‘out-of-hand.’ But what if a case could be made outside the Bible for Jesus as THE person of interest, THE person who is the most significant person in history, and whose impact upon the world changed everything? In his new milestone book, Person of Interest—Why Jesus Still Matters in a World That Rejects the Bible, J. Warner Wallace demonstrates how Jesus (and Christianity) changed every aspect of the world, from science to art, from music to education and literacy. As Wallace carefully sifts through the evidence from history alone, without relying on the New Testament, you’ll be taken on a journey like never before as to how Jesus, the most significant person in history, changed the world in ways that no other person has. How can this be, you may ask? Wallace’s conclusion is, “Maybe it’s because he is not a person at all. If God came into His creation, I would expect this kind of impact…He matters because He changed everything. And the only way someone with this kind of beginning can change everything is if He’s something more than human.”
