Note from the Author: I have found the following authors, speakers, and websites to be helpful and hope you will too. Obviously, I have not read every word written by them or heard every message of theirs, but I wholeheartedly recommend these resources.

The Story of Reality by Gregory Koukl –
“In The Story of Reality, bestselling author Gregory Koukl unpacks the story of our world through a wide-angle lens, introducing you to some of the most important questions every person must ask about life, death, the evil in this world, and why we are here. This is the story of the Bible told through five simple and easy-to-remember words: GOD, MAN, JESUS, CROSS, and RESURRECTION.”
More Than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell – “The inspirational classic, More than a Carpenter, is now updated for a new generation of seekers with a fresh look, revised material, and a new chapter that addresses questions commonly raised today. Former skeptic Josh McDowell is now joined by his son Sean as they examine the evidence about Jesus.”
Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace –
“Christianity could be defined as a ‘cold-case’: it makes a claim about an event from the distant past for which there is little forensic evidence. In Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace uses his nationally recognized skills as a homicide detective to look at the evidence and eyewitnesses behind Christian beliefs.”
Putting Jesus in His Place by Robert M. Bowman, Jr. and E. Ed Komoszewski –
“The central theological distinctive of Christianity–that Jesus is God incarnate–has repeatedly come under fire from adherents to other religions and scholars who interpret Jesus as a prophet, angel, or guru. Putting Jesus in His Place is designed to introduce Christians to the wealth of biblical teaching on the deity of Christ.”
Cold-Case Christianity for Kids by J. Warner Wallace –
“Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true. In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids… detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity.”
God’s Crime Scene for Kids by J. Warner Wallace –
“In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic… In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence.”
