Divinity of Doubt

by Vincent Bugliosi

Vincent Bugliosi turns his critical eye on both religious believers and the atheists who reflexively oppose them. Here he indicts both camps, and argues why agnosticism is the most responsible position to take with regard to such eternal questions as the existence of God. Bugliosi examines such developements as the decline of belief in evolution and the disturbing vengefulness of God as depicted in the Old Testament. He also questions that an all-powerful and all-knowing creator would have so badly miscalculated free will, leaving human beings to persecute and murder their fellow human beings. Vincent Bugliosi sets a new course - a middle path that urges us to recognize the limits of what we know, and what we cannot know about the ineffable mysteries of existence.

Divinity of Doubt

by Vincent Bugliosi

Vincent Bugliosi, whom many view as the nation's foremost prosecutor, has successfully taken on, in court or on the pages of his books, the most notorious murderers of the last half century--Charles Manson, O.J. Simpson, and Lee Harvey Oswald. Now, in the most controversial book of his celebrated career, he turns his incomparable prosecutorial eye on the greatest target of all: God. In making his case for agnosticism, Bugliosi has very arguably written the most powerful indictment ever of God, organized religion, theism, and atheism. Theists will be left reeling by the commanding nature of Bugliosi's extraordinary arguments against them. And, with his trademark incisive logic and devastating wit, he exposes the intellectual poverty of atheism and skewers its leading popularizers--Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Richard Dawkins. Joining a 2,000-year-old conversation which no one has contributed anything significant to for years, Bugliosi, in addition to destroying the all-important Christian argument of intelligent design, remarkably--yes, scarily--shakes the very foundations of Christianity by establishing that Jesus was not born of a virgin, and hence was not the son of God, that scripture in reality supports the notion of no free will, and that the immortality of the soul was a pure invention of Plato that Judaism and Christianity were forced to embrace because without it there is no life after death. Destined to be an all-time classic, Bugliosi's Divinity of Doubt sets a new course amid the explosion of bestselling books on atheism and theism--the middle path of agnosticism. In recognizing the limits of what we know, Bugliosi demonstrates that agnosticism is he most intelligent and responsible position to take on the eternal question of God's existence.

Murder in Brentwood

by Mark Fuhrman Vincent Bugliosi

*Three months on the New York Times bestseller list*Twenty years ago, America was captivated by the awful drama of the O.J. Simpson trial. The Simpson "Dream Team" legal defense had a seemingly impossible task: convincing a jury that their client, a man the whole country had watched flee from police, was innocent of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. In order for O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, the defense attorneys had to destroy the reputation of Mark Fuhrman, a brilliant Los Angeles detective who knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that O.J. Simpson was guilty. Now Fuhrman tells his side of the story in a damning exposé that reveals why and how Simpson's prosecution was bungled. With Fuhrman's own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders, Murder in Brentwood is the book that sets the record straight about what happened on June 12, 1994-and reveals why the O.J. Simpson trial was such a catastrophe.

No Island of Sanity

by Vincent Bugliosi

But if what you folks are about to read is any indication, we've all got a lot to worry about.

Each month, the Library of Contemporary Thought will bring you a different voice on a hot-button topic in American life, politics, and culture.
