Did Christianity Grow Primarily as a Result of Violence? (Video)

Is Christianity as large as it is today primarily due to a history of violence and imperialism? If not, what really contributed to the growth of Christianity, especially in the most important early years? This clip was taken from J. Warner Wallace’s interview with Ragnhard Petersen, the general secretary of the student movement in the Faroe islands called KFS (the Faroese version of Intervarsity).

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.

Professor of Christian Apologetics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, author of Cold-Case ChristianityGod’s Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith, and creator of the Case Makers Academy for kids.
