God on Trial...

God on Trial is well worth checking out on BBC iplayer if you missed it last night on BBC2.

The setting is based on the story that prisoners in Auschwitz put God on trial. Their suffering at the hands of the Nazis pushing their faith to breaking point brought forward the charge that God was in breech of contract. God had broken his covenant.

As those selected for the chambers leave the question is heard.

"Now we have found God guilty, what do we do?"

"Pray...!"
