Why It’s Important to Teach Skeptics About the Nature of Circumstantial Evidence (Video)

In this video from a message delivered at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, J. Warner Wallace describes why it’s important for Christians to “instruct their juries” about the nature of evidence, especially the nature of circumstantial evidence. Can we make a case for the reliability of the Bible or the deity of Christ, even though we no longer have access to the original eyewitnesses? What are the basic categories of evidence and how does an understanding of these categories help us make the case for Christianity? As believers, we need to be ready to help our skeptical friends assess the evidence as described in the book, Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith.

For more information about the nature of Biblical faith and a strategy for communicating the truth of Christianity, please read Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith. This book teaches readers four reasonable, evidential characteristics of Christianity and provides a strategy for sharing Christianity with others. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Forensic Faith 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.
