Detective J. Warner Wallace listened to a pastor talk about Jesus and wondered why anyone would think Jesus was a person of interest.

Wallace was skeptical of the Bible, but he’d investigated several no-body homicide cases in which there was no crime scene, no physical evidence, and no victim's body. Could the historical life and actions of Jesus be investigated in the same way?

In Person of Interest, Wallace describes his own personal investigative journey from atheism to Christianity as he carefully considers the evidence. Creative, compelling, and fully illustrated, Person of Interest will strengthen the faith of believers while engaging those who are skeptical and distrusting of the New Testament.

"Wallace has an uncanny ability to discover clues where no one else sees them. Now he tackles perhaps his toughest case ever: solving a deeply personal mystery involving his own religious faith."

—ROBERT DEAN, producer of NBC News Dateline

"A creative and eye-opening work. You'll be captivated as Wallace takes you on a thrilling journey of discovery."

—LEE STROBEL, bestselling author of The Case for Christ

"If you read this book, you will have to reckon with Jesus, not just as a historical person but as Lord and Savior. This is not your typical apologetics book!"

—ALISA CHILDERS, author of Another Gospel

"Bring your doubts, bring your skepticism--but if you bring them in open-minded honesty . . . be prepared to render a shocking verdict."

—SCOTT HANSON, host of NFL RedZone


“Person of Interest:  Why Jesus Still Matters in a World that Rejects the Bible” is a feast for the mind and the soul!  J. Warner Wallace has penned a doozy of a book and created first-rate artwork!  I really enjoy books that start off at a run, and I clicked with this book right away.  Wallace parallels “a past case” with his own investigation of the truth about Jesus Christ.  The way he presents Tammy’s disappearance case put me in the exact headspace to examine the clues from history, science, music, literature, education, science and art to make the case for the importance and impact of Jesus Christ.  The author skillfully bounces back and forth between these two cases as he moves forward in presenting the evidence gathered in each investigation.

My mind was frequently blown as I was drawn to moments of worship of a meticulous God Who perfectly wove the fabric of time and circumstances to usher in the very moment the Messiah would appear!  In the first couple of chapters, the author lays out how language and writing and transportation advanced through history to the point of Jesus’ time on earth with such precision to allow the message of the Gospel to be spread to the ends of the earth!

As the book progressed, I became grateful that, in this time of “cancel culture,” the Savior of the world can never be canceled because of His influence on so many different aspects of culture!  Even if every Christian Bible were destroyed, we would be able to re-create the life of Jesus, His miracles, His death and His resurrection through His influence.  “Person of Interest” has grown my faith and equipped me to support my beliefs using resources other than Scripture!

But wait, there’s more!  After devouring this book, although I am inspired to go back and re-read Wallace’s other books to see if I glean more from them the second time around, I don’t think I’ll have time to do that!  There are so many other things to read!  The collection of resources in the Case Notes at the end of this book is (almost) worth the entire cost of this surprisingly small work and earns the book prime real estate on my keeper shelf!  The Case Notes are meaty and point the reader to the author’s sources so you can verify what he’s written!  Don’t take his word for it.  Look it up for yourself!
