On Secular Governance : Lutheran Perspectives on Contemporary Legal Issues Paperback
Edited by Ronald W. Duty, Marie A. Failinger
In recent decades, scholars in the fields of law and theological ethics have begun to explore how religious insights might inform both jurisprudence and practical lawmaking at all levels of government.
On Secular Governance offers a distinctive Lutheran focus on how individuals and societies can participate in God's work of creating a just and trustworthy world through law.
This volume comprises essays by legal and theological scholars from the United States, Africa, Latin America, and Europe collaboratively addressing a wide range of practical subjects - women's issues, property law and the environment, immigration reform, church-state questions, and more.
Providing uniquely Lutheran insights, this accessible text is an important contribution to the larger human conversation about how we should order our common life in this world.
