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.
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 my ultimate truth. I invite you to join me in this revelation. You won't be sorry.

"A Higher Court is an eye-opening, thoroughly enlightening read. Through a compelling central storyline and a standout cast of characters, author John Betcher provides the reader with a fresh spin on an age-old debate that rages on to this day. While tackling what is clearly a controversial topic, Betcher manages to steer clear of any semblance of proselytization, instead presenting clear, cogent points supporting both sides of the argument - a difficult task to pull off, but one that Betcher makes look easy. Grippingly insightful, A Higher Court forces readers to gaze through the introspective lens of self-reflection, inviting them to give deep, serious thought to an issue that - while no doubt able to stir considerable passion - is more deserving of our collective applied wisdom and understanding. Highly recommended." -Dominique Sessons, Apex Reviews
"Thought-provoking, magnificent! After reading this book, these are the two adjectives which immediately popped into my head. The author has woven a brilliant story centering on the eternal question: Does God exist? The court room setting is the perfect vehicle to deliver arguments for and against the existence of God. Arguments which have been debated for a millenia. I found myself pondering the passages long after I had put the book down.
"The reader is promised a story unlike anything they have ever read before, and the promise is delivered in spades. I intend to pass this book onto an individual whom I know will be just as captivated as I was. I admit, without reservation, the final chapter made me smile. This is a book I will remember for a very long time." -S.L. Coelho
"Bravo to writer John L. Betcher for his outstanding achievement with A Higher Court. Once started, I had a hard time putting it down. After two and a half days pouring through this work, I felt like I had taken an intellectual and spiritual journey from the beginning of creation to where I am today, and even beyond." -Kelly Libatique "Libatique.com"
