J. Warner Wallace was a devout atheist.  Then he realized that Christianity was a lot like the cold cases he solved as a homicide detective.  When Wallace applied his skills as an expert detective to the assertions of the New Testament he realized that the case for Christianity was as convincing as any case he’d ever worked as a detective.
