Item Description...
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Our Biblical Foundation  Oct 13, 2001
Great collection by 12 authors in this edited book. We must remember that "Biblical Truth provides the only foundation of a just society", and therefore just law.

Funny how the two negative reviews said the same thing on the same day, but "different" cities. Were they friends or just the same person?

Excellent book for reviewers who actually read the book  Jun 30, 2001
This book is an edited work, not written by the author as one reviewer mentions who claims to have read the book. The chapters cover important issues of the nature, function, history, and practice of law and the Constitution. Certainly not pieced together materials as one reviewer surmised. The editor and a number of distinguished legal scholars and theologians tackle important questions regarding the nature, history, function, and practice of law in American society as it regards Christianity's impact. A virtual whos who in evangelical circles.

The editor, a professor of law and a professor of theology, writes an essay on the duty of Christians to disobey the government at times. Thought provoking and well documented.
