J. Warner Wallace

J. Warner Wallace

J. Warner Wallace was an atheist for 35 years.  He was passionate in his oppostition to Christianity, and he enjoyed debating his Christian friends. In debating his friends, J. Warner seldom found them prepared to defend what they believed.  He became a Police Officer and eventually advanced to Detective.  Along the way, he developed a healthy respect for the role of evidence in discerning truth, and his profession gave him ample opportunity to press into practice what he had learned about the nature and power of evidence.

J. Warner founded PleaseConvinceMe.com as a transparent resource that tracks his own spiritual journey.  From angry atheist, to skeptic, to believer, to seminarian, to pastor, to author and podcaster, his journey has been assisted by his experience as a Detective.  J.Warner wrote, "Cold-Case Christianity" with a desire to share those experiences with you.  It's J. Warner's hope that his own efforts to detect and articulate the truth will help you to become a better Christian Case Maker.
