James Warner Wallace is a christian who has been reformed from his old ways – that of atheism. He is a retired homicide detective for the Torrance police department homicide unit. He is now a public speaker, christian apologist and best selling author of the book Cold Case Christianity- A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospel.
I discovered J Wallace from the movie God’s Not Dead 2 where he acted as a witness in the case of High school history teacher Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart) comes under fire for answering a student’s (Hayley Orrantia) question about Jesus. When Grace refuses to apologize, the school board votes to suspend her and threatens to revoke her teaching certificate. Forced to stand trial to save her career, Grace hires young lawyer Tom Endler (Jesse Metcalfe) to defend her in court. Endler devises a powerful strategy to show the jury the historical significance of Wesley’s classroom discussion.
James Warner Wallace became a christian at the age of 35 after investigating the gospels as potential witnesses to the gospel.
For instance during the feeding of the five thousand in John 6 mathew 14:13-21 mark 6:30-44 luke 6:9-10 Jesus asks Philip where they can get food from yet Philip was a very minor disciple. it is not until you read the other accounts that you realize they were in the town where Philip was raised.
I fell in love with this concept because it shows that the gospel is reliable and that the Bible is one book and not a series of books as people tend to think.
