The author writes of his thoughts after attending a Good Friday service at a church influenced by American Evangelicalism.

“I left that ‘service’ remembering a favorite line from the eminent death-of-God theologian Woody Allen: ‘God is silent. Now if we can just get man to shut up.’ I left looking for people who recognized their need, as it were, to ‘shut up’ in the presence of a holy God, who saved people incapable of cooperating in the slightest degree with their own rescue” (Craig A. Parton, The Defense Never Rests: A Lawyer’s Quest for the Gospel (St. Louis: Concordia, 2003), 32).
