Many of the laws now on our books can be traced back to biblical precepts.

Legal Strategies to Defend Biblical Truth is a lawyer’s guide to provide practical application of legal strategies and methods employed by successful trial attorneys in defending their clients, maximizing results, and winning cases. It seeks to expand the reader’s confidence and boldness in effectively advocating biblical authority and to assist the reader in countering the strongholds of false ideas, human philosophies, and compromise.

It encourages readers to think independently, analytically, and critically, not just routinely accepting consensus of thought.

Legal Strategies to Defend Biblical Truth:

  • Uses the vocabulary of the law, principles of law, and practice as a correlation and parallel to advocating for biblical truth.
  • Is intended for teen through adult and is especially tailored for those fascinated by the law and legal systems.
  • Is thoroughly scriptural and includes analogy to legal concepts, rules, and principles that govern the practice of law.
  • Includes analogies and parallels, not just from the legal field, but language, culture, politics, government, constitutional principles, and religious liberty issues.
