Best of The Poached Egg: J Warner Wallace on Christian Case Making and Case Makers
An alternative title to this post could be, “A 21 Gun Salute to one of Christian Apologetics’ MVPs”. The 21 guns being the 21 posts being shared in this “Best of” edition. Not only is J Warner Wallace one of apologetics’ MVPs, but his book, Cold Case Christianity, is in my opinion, one of the most important apologetics books of 2013—and quite possibly one of the most important apologetics books since Lee Strobel’s, The Case for Christ. There are indeed similarities shared between the two books, the most obvious being that both authors had formal training in investigation and law, and that both authors were committed atheists before beginning their investigations into the truth claims of Christianity.
Here at The Poached Egg, we are so thankful for J Warner Wallace’s contributions to the field of Christian Case Making and for allowing us to share his work on this website. There is a lot of information to digest in this collection of posts, but please do not let that overwhelm you or discourage you from visiting or revisiting the links below—my suggestion would be to bookmark this post for later reference so that you can view and review them at your convenience.
Jim (J Warner Wallace), as I’ve no doubt that this post will eventually find its way to your computer screen, I’m confident that I can speak for the rest of us in the apologetics community when I say thank you for all you do for the Kingdom, for us as fellow Christian Case Makers, and for encouraging others to become Christian Case Makers and One Dollar Apologists!
It’s easy to reach those in the Church who are already interested in “apologetics”. That’s no longer my goal. I want to interest the disinterested, challenge those who don’t yet recognize the challenge, and engaged those who feel disengaged. If we hope to change the direction of the Church and grow a movement of thoughtful, intellectually robust Christian ambassadors, we’re going to need to reach those who are disinterested. —J Warner Wallace (from, Reaching Those Who Are Disinterested)
