Trial of Beliefs in fact takes the form of a trial: the reader is both judge and jury. The defense is not one, but every single religion in the world. The intent of this book is not to discuss religious dogma or present one faith or lack of faith as being evil. It does not ask its readers to believe in a God or to not believe in a God. It asks the reader instead to contemplate the doctrine of a religion. This book invites the reader to participate in an examination of this by trial of evidence in the court of humanity. Contemplative and informative, Trial of Beliefs will offer new insight to unanswered questions of religion, mortality, and the meaning of life itself.
