Christianity on Trial

Full Product Description

Is Christianity reasonable?

Is it more reasonable to believe that a god exists than not? Is it plausible that such a god would choose to create and communicate with humanity? Can we trust the alleged eyewitness testimony to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus?

Mark Lanier, one of America's top trial lawyers, brings a legal eye to examine the plausibility of the Christian faith. Explaining the rules that courts follow to determine the likelihood of truth, he interrogates key witnesses from throughout history to explore whether it makes sense to accept the Christian world-view or not.

We must choose what is worthy of belief and what is not. Weigh the arguments and decide for yourself.

Is Christianity reasonable? Weigh the arguments with the help of a top lawyer and decide for yourself.

Assessing stress and remembering our Maker,

Are Christians any less stressed than non-Christians?

Worry and refocusing,

Don't let the sun go down on your anger,

Be ambitious, but for the right reasons.

Work, rest, worship and play,

Joy and thankfulness as a way of life,

Relax, you are pre-approved,

Let God be King,

Remember, God is for you!


'Mark Lanier's skills as a trial lawyer are renowned. So too are his apologetical persuasiveness and winsome delivery.' - Simon Vibert

'This is a unique and exhilarating book judiciously arguing for the credibility of Christianity. Mark Lanier has a mind which is as sharp as razor and a writing style as smooth as silk.

The legal presentation of the material is extremely helpful assisting clarity of thought and the personal touches are warm and connect well with the ordinary reader.

One is reminded of the heyday works of C.S. Lewis, Norman Anderson and John Stott. This book is a must for all who want to think intelligently about the Christian faith.' - Melvin Tinker, Senior Minister of St John, Newland, Hull and author of Evangelical Concerns, Intended for Good and What Do You Expect? Ecclesiastes for Today.

'Notable trial lawyer Mark Lanier skilfully blends legal rigour and theological acumen in this imaginative and compelling defence of Christian truth. He is just the kind of advocate any judge wants in a case!

As he sets out the evidence, calls his witnesses, develops his arguments and invites a verdict, there is not merely mastery of his brief and meticulous analysis – with difficult questions faced – there is also passion, clarity, intelligence and persuasiveness. Lanier is at the top of his game professionally, confident of his case philosophically and theologically.

It's a winning formula!' - His Honour Judge David Turner QC
