Catholic and Evangelical Law Professors Publish Joint Statement On Theological Foundations of Civil Law


A group of 15 Evangelical and 14 Catholic law professors have just published a paper that has been 8 years in the making titled Evangelicals and Catholics Together On the Law: The Lord of Heaven and Earth. (Full text in Summer 2013 Journal of Christian Legal Thought). Heavy on theology, the 9-page joint statement begins with this explanation of purpose:
... we wish to speak from and to our respective communities about law, politics, and government. We speak from the conviction that law's place and role in society are shaped by enduring truths - truths that transcend the differences among cultures and traditions - about God, about the world, about the human person, and about what the entire human family is called by its divine creator and redeemer to be.
