My name is William Kensey. I have a wife and two great kids. Until very recently, I was a well-respected and financially successful trial attorney. I was also a man who was comfortable with his religion. I preferred it served at arm’s length from the pulpit on Sunday morning. And would rather not discuss it the rest of the week.
The circumstances that led me to write A HIGHER COURT changed all that. The entire experience was both bizarre and unavoidable. You see, I was summoned to serve as a juror in an improbable trial — a trial to determine whether God exists.
I know. You think that sounds ludicrous. I did, too . . . until the trial began.
Witnesses buried me under mountains of scientific evidence. My own eyes forced me to confront the reality of extreme human suffering. God seemed less and less relevant — even absent — as the trial progressed. At the close of the trial, I had to render my verdict — “God” or “No God.” Affirm a new and deeper faith in a Creator, or confess the triumph of science.
A HIGHER COURT is the story of how I discovered the ultimate truth. I invite you to join me in this revelation. You won’t be sorry.
