We are slowly growing the number of unique visitors to the ColdCaseChristianity.com website, and we expect to have approximately one million unique visitors next year. Thanks for making us a regular part of your Internet experience. I’d also love to see you in person; I’ll start another busy speaking season in just a few days. In 2015, I had the great privilege to give 193 talks to over 35,000 people at 71 events (I’m definitely trying to slow that down a bit next year). We also posted 234 new articles, videos or podcasts on the website. I pray all these efforts have helped you become a better Christian Case Maker. I’d also like to thank the NRB Network for the opportunity to do a weekly television show. Many of you have written to me to say you’ve learned a lot from our weekly 30-minute broadcast. Here, then, is our final top ten list for 2015, the Top 10 Cold-Case Christianity Broadcasts:

The 10th Most Popular Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast of 2015:
How the Cosmological Evidence Points to the Existence of God (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #44)
J. Warner describes two pieces of cosmological evidence: the origin of the universe and the appearance of fine-tuning in the cosmos. Can these two pieces of evidence “inside the room” of the universe be explained by staying “inside the room”? This simple question helps homicide detectives determine if a death scene is a crime scene. Could the same question be applied to the evidence in the universe to determine if a cosmic “intruder” is the most reasonable inference?

The 9th Most Popular Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast of 2015:
How the Mental Evidence Points to the Existence of God (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #46)
J. Warner describes two pieces of “mental” evidence: consciousness and our common experience of free agency. Can these two pieces of evidence “inside the room” of the universe be explained by staying “inside the room”? This simple question helps homicide detectives determine if a death scene is a crime scene. Could the same question be applied to the evidence in the universe to determine if a cosmic “intruder” is the most reasonable inference?

Answering Two Common Objections to the Existence of God (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #50)
J. Warner Wallace addresses two common objections to the existence of God. If God is the creator of everything we see in the universe, who created God? If God is all-powerful and all-loving, why does he allow people to behave badly and hurt one another?

Why Wasn’t the Virgin Conception of Jesus Mentioned by Mark or Paul? (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #54)
J. Warner Wallace continues his series on the virgin conception of Jesus. If the virgin conception of Jesus really happened, why didn’t Mark or Paul say anything about it? Does their silence mean the virgin conception was a late idea added to the story of Jesus? Is there any good reason to believe Mark or Paul knew about the virgin conception, and if so, why didn’t they mention it?

The Most Popular Cold-Case Christianity Broadcast of 2015:
Was the Virgin Conception of Jesus Borrowed from Prior Mythologies? (Cold Case Christianity Broadcast #53)
J. Warner Wallace continues his series on the virgin conception of Jesus. Was the virgin conception borrowed from ancient pagan myths?
