Evidence For Conviction book was written by
As a Police Detective I spent much of my time gathering evidence in cases to secure a conviction at court. Evidence For Conviction explores another kind of conviction. That unshakable belief that there is a God and that the bible is his authentic and trustworthy word. This book was inspired by my desire to explain to those closest to me, the grounds for my Christian beliefs. Written with two different groups of people in mind. Firstly, the sceptic, to demonstrate that far from being a blind faith, essentially a leap into the dark, Christianity is actually an evidence based faith. Hence in this sense it is a step out into light.
I have been a Christian since 25th April 1992 when I was baptised. As a Police Detective who worked on homicide for three years, I was trained to rigorously examine evidence, and explore answers given under questioning with more questions. Since retiring from the Police, I have obtained a professional qualification as a Life Coach. Like the disciples who Jesus used to kick start his church, I am not an academic. I explore the evidence through questions and try to articulate my message in a language that is easy to follow. Written by Randal Porter.
The standards of evidence required for a criminal conviction can vary depending on the legal system and jurisdiction. Generally, in most legal systems, the prosecution must prove the guilt of the accused “beyond a reasonable doubt.” This means that the evidence presented must be strong and convincing enough that there is no reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors or judge about the defendant’s guilt.
t’s important to note that the specific rules of evidence can vary between jurisdictions, and legal professionals such as lawyers, judges, and jurors play a critical role in evaluating the relevance and credibility of the evidence presented in court. The overall goal is to ensure a fair trial and that the decision is based on reliable and accurate information.
