Lawyer Puts the Reliability of the Bible on Trial in New Book


Within the pages of Daniel Buttafuoco’s new book, Consider the Evidence, readers will find an examination of eyewitness testimony in defense of the reliability of the New Testament.

A lawyer, Buttafuoco has tried hundreds of jury and non-jury trials over the course of a thirty-five-year career representing injury and malpractice victims.

“The Bible is not just a collection of stories; it’s also a historical document,” writes Buttafuoco. “We can use its depiction of history to examine whether the claims made in regard to our souls are true. If those claims are provably false, we need not worry about this subject at all. If they are true, we need to pay careful attention to what the Bible says.”

Ravi Zacharias, a best-selling author and preeminent Christian apologist, is one of many Christian leaders to endorse the book.

“I have known Dan for almost two decades. As a trial lawyer, he takes on some of the worthiest causes in need of defense,” said Zacharias. “In this book, to which his life is committed, he brings the best of his arguments and his keen mind as a lawyer to investigate the Bible. Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, I know you will find this to be an invaluable resource.”

A member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and other prestigious trial lawyer groups, Buttafuoco is a graduate of Hofstra Law School and Hofstra University’s New College. He earned a master’s degree of professional studies in Theology from Alliance Theological Seminary with an emphasis in Christian Apologetics.

Buttafuoco is formerly an adjunct volunteer professor of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy’s “Trial Techniques” course, which puts law school graduates and practicing lawyers through a rigorous training program of trial skills and techniques. He is board-certified in Civil Trial Advocacy and pre-trial advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and wrote and graded the qualifying examination for the National Board of Trial Advocacy (civil) in 1990.

An elder in the church for over 25 years, Buttafuoco lectures and speaks at various schools, institutions, and churches of all denominations, including the Billy Graham Library and Moody Theological Seminary. He is the founder and president of the Historical Bible Society, a not-for-profit organization that collects, displays, and preserves rare and ancient Bibles for public and private education.
