LAWS 9735 Faith, Morality&Law (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Looks at the relationship between faith, morality, and law at key points in the Christian tradition and in relationship to contemporary issues. Section One examines the relationship between moral law and Christian life by looking at key passages from the New Testament in their historical context and classic Protestant and Catholic views of the subject. Section Two considers the relationship of law and morality in a pluralistic society. Section Three looks at responsibilities of Christians who find themselves in an unjust legal system. We will consider the possibilities and limits of civil disobedience and the call to martyrdom.
