The underpinnings of our legal system, which once recognized objective points of reference in the law of God and absolute ethics, have seriously eroded. As H. Wayne House observes in the introduction to this volume, "The law has become little more than the subjective dictates of legislators and judges captured by the philosophy of relativism." The Christian principles upon which American government was built are considered by many to be merely historical relics rather than dynamic realities. The truths of Christian faith, however, provide a better foundation for a just society than the shifting sands of contemporary relativism and postmodernism. The contributors to this volume examine Christianity's rich contribution to American law, explore ways in which Christians can relate to current laws, and propse strategies whereby Christians may influence future laws. They especially focus on ways that Christians can work within the lagal community to promote better laws and ensure equal opportunity for the Christian faith in the public forum.
