Publisher's Summary

In the courtroom, lawyers depend on rules of evidence to make their arguments. A case is made by establishing certain facts from which proof can be determined. But what happens when the truth seems to be a matter of faith? Can the legal mind discern the validity of one's belief or unbelief? 

Nationally recognized trial lawyer Mark Lanier turns his analytical mind to the arguments for atheism and agnosticism. With critical thinking and precision of thought, he examines the rationales made for unbelief and assesses them on their own terms, finding points of strength and weakness in their logic and coherence. He considers whether atheistic frameworks give satisfactory and consistent explanatory answers for understanding human existence and the world around us. He cross-examines the strongest arguments of prominent atheists and also interrogates the questions of agnostics as to whether God is knowable. Through his evenhanded, levelheaded approach, Lanier challenges us all to decide for ourselves what we believe.

Common Sense Explanation of a Complex Question

I’ve occasionally been confronted by colleagues who wonder why I am so certain that there is a God. But, it was difficult to address their questions.

Now, I can see the clear common sense answer to the question and can respond with more than blind faith.

Be the jury and judge for yourself.

An interesting take on challenging atheists and their views on reality. The courtroom examination of atheism puts a logical spin on the topic that should make anyone think a little more clearly about how they weigh the evidence. Go ahead and sit in the jury box and enjoy this one.
