J. Warner Wallace is a Dateline featured cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author. He continues to consult on cold-case investigations while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. He is also an adjunct professor of apologetics.
Up to 35 years old he was an atheist and came to believe in Jesus through the evidence he found reading through the gospels while using his skills as a detective. And today, he has a relationship with Jesus and God is using him in powerful ways to help other atheists see the evidence and reality of God.
In this episode J. Warner shares that believing the gospel is evidentially true and understanding how that truth impacts our lives is the superpower for living the Christian life.
If you are a skeptic, he understands where you are coming from and speaks directly to you. He states how research is revealing that the way of life Jesus calls us to will evidentially improve every area of our lives.
He shares strong encouragement for the Christian parent whose child is not walking with God. And shares that ultimate meaning in life is found in the truth of who God is and in relationship with him. A relationship that answers the question, “Who am I?” and, “Why am I here.”

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
