In this blast from the past, J. Warner Wallace interviews Steven Kingsley, author of “The Easter Answer”. As a layperson, Kingsley provides a response to atheist Dan Barker’s “Easter Challenge”. Are there inherent internal contradictions in the Easter accounts found in the Gospels? Are these contradictions a proof that the Christian claims related to the Resurrection are false? We’ll examine the “Easter Challenge” and Steven Kinsley’s “Easter Answer” in this edition of the show. For more information about the case for the Resurrection of Jesus from the perspective of a detective, see J. Warner’s Easter tract, ALIVE.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
