Lubbock Christian University welcomed one of America’s top trial lawyers and Lanier Theological Library founder, Mark Lanier, to campus on Nov. 13, 2014 to discuss his book, Christianity on Trial.
Lanier joined guests for a benefit dinner and question and answer session with President Tim Perrin. Following the dinner, Lanier held a lecture in the McDonald Moody auditorium where he spoke to a full house.
In his lecture, Lanier addressed the moral law and its impact on making the case for the existence God. Using the example of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, Lanier probed the nature of a just, loving, and merciful God.
Lanier used his experienced legal eye to examine the plausibility of the Christian faith while bringing science, current knowledge, and common sense together in a courtroom approach. The “trial” conveyed a rich understanding of God and a strong foundation for Christian faith.
At the end of the evening, the audience had the opportunity to ask questions and speak with Lanier in person while he signed copies of his book.
