When it comes to refuting Christian beliefs there are basically two avenues of approach; the scientific, epitomized in Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion," or the theological, which may be represented by George Smith's, "Atheism: the Case against God." Mr. Henley's work, "Beyond Reasonable Doubt," is unique in that it not only addresses both methods but introduces a third consideration-the legality of Christian claims. In Beyond Reasonable Doubt, even before he turns to his expertise in civil and criminal law, Geoff Henley kicks the legs, one by one, from underneath the stool of religious beliefs. From evolutionary and scientific revelations to just plain ole common sense reasoning Mr. Henley, with the tongue in cheek wit of a modern-day Matlock, presents simple and concise arguments that reduce pro-religious assertions to [...] braying. As a Texas attorney he presents a unique approach to refuting Christian claims. By simply comparing the Biblical teachings and laws to the judicial system we enjoy here in the United States, he makes it obvious that the two have little in common. And by revealing the injustice and inequality of the Christian god's dictates, as compared to our laws, Beyond Reasonable Doubt leaves no doubt as to which is superior. It is here the reader, unless he is already well-versed in the American judicial system, is rewarded with a secondary treat-a better understanding and greater appreciation of that system. I, personally, will at least screen some of the worst lawyer jokes from my repertoire.
