Faith on Trial

Would the Testimony of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John Stand Up in Court?

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


For those without faith or with lingering moments of doubt, Faith on Trial sets forth solid evidence for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ – much of it only becoming available in the last few decades.  Lawyer, author, and former agnostic Pamela Binnings Ewen illuminates Christianity as the only world religion that can be based upon verifiable facts. Developing those facts, she invites readers into the jury box and then examines under court-required standards the gospel testimonies of the witnesses: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Were these authors of the gospels writing from personal knowledge, or was it second-hand information? Holding bedrock Christian beliefs up for detailed scrutiny, Faith on Trial forms a powerful chain of proof using archeological, historic, scientific, manuscript-based, and even medical evidence to build the case.  Facts and reason are not provided as substitutes for faith in Faith On Trial. But for those seeking answers, or those who doubt, these facts and reason can provide the key to revelation and a firm foundation for faith. 

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 28, 1999 – Using a method that is hardly new, Ewen, an international lawyer who specializes in corporate finance, applies the legal rules of evidence to the case of Jesus' death and resurrection. Ewen invites the reader to act as a jury to which she will present archeological, scientific, historical, literary and even medical evidence in an attempt to defend the credibility of the claim that Jesus rose from the dead. The author examines the testimony of eyewitnesses--the writers of Matthew, Mark and Luke--to argue that the Synoptic Gospels indeed are fact, contending that they present factual evidence because of the authors' credibility. Based on the evidence she accumulates, Ewen argues that each of the authors of these Gospels would have been in a position to observe Jesus' death and resurrection. Her summation before the jury contends that a thorough examination of the evidence must lead one to believe rationally in the truth of the death and resurrection of Jesus. The flaw in Ewen's argument is that there is little factual evidence that any of the Gospel writers would have observed Jesus' death and resurrection. Ewen's evidence depends only on the sources with which she agrees. Ewen's book is a perfect example of how historians and lawyers can manipulate "facts" to prove whatever assertion they wish.
