Blasphemy, murder and the Lord don't mix when religion and reason collide in court.

When university graduate student David Stone publicly challenges Pastor, he unknowingly threatens Pastor and Sister Leah's lifestyle of crime, corruption, and debauchery. David is arrested for blasphemy and contends the State must first prove the existence of God in court, using the standard Rules of Evidence. Can the prosecution sustain its burden of proof?

God on Trial is a book about critical thinking, and challenges readers to ask themselves: What do I know and how do I know it? David contends people should be embarrassed to hold beliefs not based upon evidence and reason, and in the case of religion, beliefs they cannot even define.

God on Trial is not for the feint of heart or the closed of mind.

You will be shocked.
