I read this book because of uestions I was having in my own belief Years ago a skeptic planted some seeds of doubts by asking me how I could believe the Bible that was hand picked and assembled by people who clearly benefited and had a vested interest in seeing their movement continue and grow It was a reasonable uestion and I couldn t answer it Mr Wallace did a great job of answering this with convincing proof and a perspective I had not heard beforeI also read many of the negative reviews of this book to see what uestions remained unanswered out there and other proofs to the contrary I can t compete with the academic scholars who have spent years studying and researching ancient writings and histories so I can t refute the facts and arguments they bring up but I did notice a recurrent theme Many of the people who dispute the authenticity of the gospels are essentially putting them under a microscope and picking out flaws to support their theories Mr Wallace on the other hand has taken a step back and looked at all the evidence as a body and drawn his conclusion from that When considered individually the gospels may have holes irregularities and unanswered uestions but when taken as a whole with support from the rest of the letters in the New Testament and other historic factors they form a convincing proof of authenticityAny facts can be disputed There are people that are convinced the Apollo landings were faked the holocaust never occurred and the earth is flat I m sure people will discount the bible forever This book took evidence available to us and arranged it in a way that an average person could understand and come to a logical conclusion Thank you Mr Wallace for helping me see the big picture

read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels characters Ø eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Written by an L A County homicide detective and former atheist Cold. Wallace starts off with stories of being a homicide detective and begins his narrative of moving from belief in that to belief in He was known by his friends as an angry Atheist I really despise how often Christian apologists use this strawman It tends to lead Christians to believe that atheist don t believe because they are angry about something daddy issues hurt by the church are just rejecting god because they don t like authority they just want to sin etc In reality the majority of atheists don t believe the claim made by other human beings that a god exists due to lack of evidence to support that claim Wallace goes on about how often he has interviewed eyewitnesses and suspects and how he understands how testimony is evaluated in a court of law Then he states that he used his skills as an investigator to determine that the book of Mark was actually an eyewitness account of the apostle Peter WOW This is a bold and absolutely ridiculous claim right from the start We have NO original manuscripts of the book of Mark philosophical naturalists believe that nothing exists beyond the natural world I agree with this definition He then claims that most scientists adhere to this philosophy and because of this they will not consider refuse to consider paranormal explanations What Wallace doesn t understand is philosophy deals with concepts it is entirely theoretical In other words it is a mind exercise only Most scientists and skeptics adhere to Methodological Naturalism which is A strategy for studying the world by which scientists choose not to consider supernatural causes even as a remote possibility because while it is possible supernatural causes may exist they are impossible to investigate using any known method If a supernatural event was able to be investigated and the cause was able to be determined it would then fall into the realm of the natural Scientists can believe in the supernatural all they like and many do However when conducting actual scientific study they have no ability to investigate the supernatural therefor they must test only things which can be tested ie natural causes and if a natural cause cannot be discovered at this time the answer is we don t know why because we humans have no ability to test for the supernatural If we can t test for the supernatural why would we ever assume supernatural causes for events when as yet undiscovered natural causes are probable Wallace then goes on to speak of historians also adhering to philosophical naturalism many historians are also committed to a naturalistic presupposition The majority of historical scholars for example accept the historicity of the New Testament gospels in so far as they describe the life and teaching of Jesus and the condition of the first century environment in which Jesus lived and ministered But many of the same historians simultaneously reject the historicity of any of the miracles described in the New Testament in spite of the fact that these miracles are described alongside the events that scholars accept as historical Why do they accept some events and reject others Because they have a presuppositional bias against the supernatural While historians may accept that the bible does describe the general life and culture of the time and place fairly accurately they may also say that the Harry Potter novels describe the general life and culture of England for the time period at the end of the 20th to early 21st century but that doesn t make magic real the majority do not accept the stories of Jesus as accurately recorded history The bible was not written by historians using the methods of the historians at the time the bible was written As far as historians not affirming the historical accuracy of the miracle claims in the bible They cannot accept them as true by the very nature of methods used by historians Historians do NOT have the ability to verify the factual accuracy any miracle claim The best a historian can do is record the claim as a claim examples Jane Doe claimed she flew like superman to the top of Mount Everest on June 1st 2018 Mr Wallace as a homicide investigator can you simply accept a suspect s claim that he only killed someone because he was possessed by the devil at that time and you should be arresting Lucifer based on his claim Of course not This is the same argument you are making regarding scientists and historians I guess you have the exact same presuppostional bias against the supernatural as all those scientists and historians Mr Wallace show me the evidence that supports the miracle claims in the bible without using the bible itselfWallace states that when he was an atheist he allowed presupposition and that he refused to consider anything but natural causes when considering the claims that a god exists The problem with this is that it isn t whether or not you consider anything outside of the natural it is about evidence Based on what I have previously stated humans have no way of investigating paranormal claims so anyone who claims they have witnessed a supernatural occurrence cannot determine the cause the best they can do is make an assumption of the cause However the honest answer is to simply state I don t know what caused the occurrence until such time we can accurately determine the causeWallace moves on to abductive reasoning which is inferring deduce or conclude from evidence and reason rather than from explicit statements He then states While it s interesting to imagine the possibilities it s important to return eventually to what s reasonable especially when the truth is at stake I fully agree with this statement But he then goes on to say We can apply the process of abduction to our spiritual investigation as well Actually you really can t without ultimately making a guess at the end because we have no means of investigating the supernatural He then goes into an apologetic argument I ve heard many times How do we explain the empty tomb He gives 4 Facts which are absolutely not proven facts to begin his argument Jesus died on a cross and was buried the tomb was empty and no one produced a body the disciples believed they saw Jesus after the disciples believed Jesus was resurrected These are unverified claims made in the bible and not one of them is supported by any valid extra biblical sources These cannot be considered fact because they have not been proven to be fact Here is what we actually do know At some point in the early 1st century roughly 66 70 AD some unknown men or a man who were not historians using the methods of historians of the time wrote down some stories about an apocalyptic preacher named Jesus who lived in the country of Israel from approximately 4 BC to 33 AD These stories include many paranormal claims That is all of the actual evidence we have Wallace is including MANY presuppositions into his investigation when he previously claimed he was trying to remove presuppositions The evidence we have points to The stories that were written down where partially or completely inaccurate We have no valid evidence of anything supernatural We can provided countless examples of people writing down things that are factually inaccurate some intentional some unintentional Just look at all holy writings with supernatural claims outside of the bible I m sure Wallace would not accept those to be true based on the criteria he has providedAt this point Wallace goes into a list of standard apologetics arguments He obviously isn t the unbiased investigator he claims to be because he never mentions the logical responses to these uestions 1 How the universe began Wallace used the standard argument from ignorance fallacy called the god of the gaps I don t know the cause therefore god did it The real answer is We human kind do not current know the answer to this uestion No one knows and no one has ever known up to this point So Mr Wallace should stop pretending to know things that he doesn t know In addition to prove your hypothesis your first step is to demonstrate that your god exists 2 The universe was designed Again another argument from ignorance I don t understand the complexities of the universe therefore god did it 3 How did life begin Another argument from ignorance I don t understand how life could have begun therefore god 4 I don t understand the diversity of life on this planet therefore god did it Nope We human kind does understand this process All Mr Wallace had to do was borrow a good science book on evolution from the library to get the answer to this one 5 DNA is a code Yet another argument from ignorance DNA is complicate therefore god DNA is not a code Scientists use this term loosely to help laypeople understand DNA is a group of physical and chemical reactions It is not a language used to communicate between two minds Ultimately We human kind do not have a full understanding of how DND developed but we are working on discovering the answer 6 Objective Morality Nope all morality is subjective on a personal each mind level and it can be somewhat objective at a societal level we enact laws and associated punishments based on consensus of what is harmful to humans and society Even if there is a god there is no objective morality as morality would be based on god s subjective opinion 7 The bible can be considered eye witness testimony This one is ridiculously wrong especially coming from someone who was a police officer The bible is a big book of claims claims which must be demonstrated to be true IT IS NOT EVIDENCE Using the bible to prove the claims of the bible is circular reasoning If you can use this method to prove the bible is factually accurate than you can use the same method to prove every holy book that has ever existed to be factually accurate 8 Martyrdom of the Apostles First Wallace has to prove that these Martyrdom stories are factually accurate but even if he does people will willingly go to their deaths for what they believe This happens often I ll give one example The Tank Man from Tiananmen Suare He was willing to be run over by a tank for his socio political beliefsThe remainder of the book Wallace covered a few extra biblical texts which in some vague way kind of mentioned Jesus However some of these have been demonstrated to be forgeries Flavius Josephus for example some are written well after the events so were not firsthand accounts he obviously did not write this book for skeptics atheists or people who adhere to other religious beliefs because none of these people would find any of the information convincing This type of book is written as Christian propaganda for Christian believers to bolster their faith
