In this companion to Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, Jason uncovers a mystery in his grandmother’s attic. He and his friends, Hannah, Daniel, and Jasmine, enlist the help of Detective Jeffries at the Jr. Detective’s Academy. Along the way, they develop the skills needed to investigate the mystery and the evidence of God’s existence. The cadets learn logical-thinking skills as they examine the contents of a mysterious box and the vast universe.
In God’s Crime Scene for Kids, real-life detective J. Warner Wallace shows kids ages 8 to 12 what skills are needed to solve Jason’s mystery, and at the same time looks at evidence in the universe that demonstrates God is the creator. Ultimately, kids will learn how to make their own case for God’s existence.

This read is a spin-off from the book Cold-Case Christianity For Kids but you will have no issue reading it as a stand alone. This is a highly inventive way to start kids thinking analytically but also learn about the Bible these both being profoundly important in their lives. Additionally, the book being an easy read for children, it is full of explanatory pictures that follow along with the story and activities that help you solve the case as you advance through the book. Therefore, these activities consist of reading passages in the Bible (CSI Assignment), learning new words (Detective Definitions), and the explanation of how an investigation works (A “TOOL” for your detective bag). How could this possibly get any better? There is an interactive website with videos and more activities in addition to "leader's guides" for adults to help the kids with their mission. Therefore, the whole family can participate!

This particular book is both groovy and education in multiple manners. Furthermore, providing quality bonding time with you and your child. Also, as an adult, I learned a great deal from it. I recommend this book to all children and adults who are kids at heart. God Bless and get a copy for a child you know today 👼

J. Warner Wallace is both a detective (currently working cold case homicides), a missions leader and a church planter. He started his career as a designer (earning a BFA from California State University at Long Beach and a Master’s in Architecture from UCLA). He eventually joined a law enforcement agency in Los Angeles County and has been a police officer and detective for nearly 25 years. Jim wasn’t raised as a Christian. In fact, he was a conscientious and vocal atheist until he was 35 years old and always considered himself to be an “evidentialist”. His experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth was tied directly to evidence. But J. Warner eventually took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theology from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.

J. Warner served as a Youth Pastor for several years, then planted a church in 2006. Along the way, he created and built the website, blog and podcast as a place to post and talk about what he discovered related to the evidence supporting Christianity. This adventure in apologetics has become the major thrust of Jim’s Christian service and now occupies much of his free time. Jim has appeared on television and radio, explaining the role that evidence plays in the Christian definition of “faith” and defending the historicity of Jesus, the reliability of the Bible and the truth of the Christian worldview. Jim also speaks at churches, retreats and camps as he seeks to help people become “Christian Case Makers.”
