Jim Warner Wallace.  Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, October 1st 2016. 127 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an apologetics’ book geared towards kids.  The publisher labeled the book as Juvenile Nonfiction.  Technically it’s actually a book that lets the readers enter a fictional story of being a cadet in a “Cadet Academy” analogous to the Police Explore program (where kids have the opportunity to understand how the police work) but with a twist: the detective teaching the class also present reasons why Christianity is a faith that is true.  The author is Jim Warner Wallace who in real life has worked for decades as a police officer and cold-case detective.  As a detective he became a Christian when he started to look into Christianity.  With his background he applied his detective skills in evaluating and later defending the Christian worldview.  There’s definitely a lot of good illustrations, examples and analogy that detective Wallace draws upon to make his point throughout the book.  I read this aloud to my daughters and they enjoyed this book more than I expected (my oldest is eight and youngest is four).

Today I want to share a thesis that was completed for a Masters of Religion that was completed over at Reformed Theological Seminary.  It was completed last year in 2018.  It is titled “A Defense of Presuppositional Apologetics and Its Practical Application to the Public University Campus” and written by R. Shane Hartley.  I have found Presuppositional apologetics when properly understood and properly employed to be a very helpful and powerful apologetic.  I am also involved with college campus evangelism in which I will start back again next Lord willing (pray for me!).  So this thesis obviously caught my attention.

What is this thesis specifically about?  In his introductory paragraph to his thesis Mr. Hartley wrote the following summary:

I’m excited to share this!  Lauren of Afterthought podcast have posted her latest episode over at her blog:

She invited me to be on her to show to talk about the topic of responding to alleged Bible contradictions!  The approach we took for the show is to make this as practical as possible for discussion with real people and not just theoretical.  We discussed how its important to understand the definition of an alleged Bible contradiction, then looked at some examples of alleged Bible contradictions and frequent types of mistakes people make when they claimed an alleged Bible contradictions.  We also went over various analogies and illustrations of real life examples where the skeptics’ reasoning is problematic for every day life if they are to use their reasoning against the Bible.

You can check out the podcast and listen to it on Podbean here.  If you want the show in other format check out this link such as Google Play, ITunes, etc. Or here’s the Youtube video of the discussion below:
