Todd Starnes, Lauren Green, Josh McDowell and Others Also Part of Two-Day Event in March at Life Community Church in North Carolina
GREENSBORO, N.C.—If there was ever a time to investigate faith for its ability to “Save a Nation,” it is now.
That’s exactly the focus of cold-case investigator J. Warner Wallace, who, ever since his own discovery that Christianity is demonstrably true, has helped thousands of believers know these same truths.
Wallace will be part of the 2018 Truth for a New Generation (TNG, www.TruthforaNewGeneration.com) conference organized by religion and culture expert and author Dr. Alex McFarland (www.alexmcfarland.com). The event is set for March 23-24, 2018, at Life Community Church, 4900 W. Wendover Ave., Jamestown (the greater Greensboro area) in North Carolina.
“J. Warner Wallace is one of the most intelligent and calculating defenders of the faith today,” said McFarland, who is also Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center of North Greenville University (NGU, www.ngu.edu) in Greenville, S.C. “And we are honored to welcome him to this year’s Truth for a New Generation conference. As a former atheist himself, this faith investigator knows the skepticism that runs rampant in today’s culture, and J. Warner Wallace is ready to counter it with the infallible facts and knowledge that can only come from the never-changing truths of the God’s Word.”
A cold-case homicide detective, apologetics professor and author of “Cold-Case Christianity” and “Forensic Faith,” Wallace was a conscientious and vocal atheist throughout his undergraduate and graduate work. He considered himself an “evidentialist,” and his experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth is tied directly to evidence. So he embarked on an investigation of Christianity, not only for himself but for others as well.
In fact, Wallace’s newest book, “Forensic Faith: A Homicide Detective Makes the Case for a More Reasonable, Evidential Christian Faith,” helps readers understand why they have a duty to defend the truth, develop a training strategy to master the evidence for Christianity, learn how to employ the techniques of a detective to discover new insights from God’s Word and become better communicators by learning the skills of professional case makers.
After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Wallace continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. Wallace served as a youth pastor for several years and then planted a church in 2006. Along the way, he authored “Cold-Case Christianity” and created 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.
With real-life detective stories, fascinating strategies and biblical insights, Wallace teaches readers cold-case investigative disciplines they can apply to their Christian faith. “Forensic Faith” is an engaging, fresh look at what it means to be a Christian. Besides “Cold-Case Christianity” and “Cold-Case Christianity for Kids,” he is also the author of “God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe,” “God’s Crime Scene for Kids” and “Alive: A Cold-Case Approach to the Resurrection.”
The theme of the 2018 Truth for a New Generation conference is “Save a Nation” and will also feature the following speakers:
This year’s conference will also feature a screening of the American Family Association feature-length film, “The God Who Speaks,” for which McFarland was a contributor, as well as a VIP “Gold Circle” seating, which will allow participants to interact with the speakers.
