Apologetics: the branch of theology concerned with the defense or proof of Christianity.
At SRC we believe that it is important for everyone to not only understand what they believe but explain why they believe to anyone who asks. This series is designed to provide you with clarity and insight into the best ways to explain your faith.
All events are FREE and no registration is required. We look forward to seeing you there!

J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author and has served as an adjunct professor of Apologetics at Biola University. Jim’s professional investigative work has received national recognition; his cases have been featured more than those of any other detective on NBC’s Dateline. Keith Morrison of Dateline has said, “Around Dateline we call J. Warner Wallace the Evidence Whisperer.” J. Warner has been awarded the Police and Fire Medal of Valor “Sustained Superiority” award for his continuing work on cold-case homicides.
Warner, a conscientious and vocal atheist until the age of 35, determined that Christianity was demonstrably true when he finally took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian worldview. Since that time he has earned a Master’s degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, has served as a youth pastor for several years, and planted a church in 2006.
Jim has created and developed the Cold-Case Christianity website, blog and podcast as a place to post and talk about what he discovered related to the evidence supporting Christianity. He hosts a show on NRBTV by the same name, Cold-Case Christianity. He is the author of two books, “Cold Case Christianity” and “God’s Crime Scene.” In these books he utilizes investigative principles to examine the reliability of the gospel eyewitness accounts and the evidence for God’s existence respectively.
Relying on over two decades of investigative experience, J. Warner provides his readers and audiences with the tools they will need to investigate the claims of Christianity and make a convincing case for the truth of the Christian worldview.
