A lawyer's view of God and Christianity 9 Oct. 2008
By Stephen B. Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not like most of the atheist books. It evaluates gods, especially the Christian one, from a legal point of view. It spends somewhat too much time discussing evidence, court proceedings, etc. in preparation for comparison with religious practices, but if you get through that, it's worthwhile. He's a Texas lawyer and former prosecutor, so he has lots of legal expertise. The writing is rather strange at times, especially in the beginning, but gets better. The points he makes are not ones you will find anywhere else, so as an atheist who's planning my own book, I found it valuable as source material. For those interested in the topic of religious teachings and practices, it's definitely worth the money.

A new prespective on religion 15 April 2009
By Doyle Duke "In Search of Camelot" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.

Totally different approach 11 Aug. 2009
By Darrel W. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read all the major books by the New Atheists but this one takes a totally different approach. I enjoyed it because it shows how completely absurd religious arguments are when evaluated from the perspective of a court of law. I have to say that it began somewhat slow but got better with each chapter. For the legal lay person, he is careful to introduce the concepts and ideas necessary to understand a court of law and trial procedure. Once that is understood, little stands in your way. God, the defendant, is clearly guilty of being an impostor. If you want a new way to look at religion of any kind and to see how well designed out legal system is for evaluating the crazy claims of religion, read this book. For further reading, get my book, The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture. The God Virus: How religion infects our lives and culture

Wow, wish I would have read this when I was younger. Christianity is left naked after an analysis like this
