About Book

The essays collected here were prepared for a conference organized by the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington. The essays are concerned with the broad question of how Christians can contribute to public debate on moral issues; but, more specifically, they are concerned with theological dimensions of the "natural law" tradition understood from conservative Roman Catholic and Evangelical Protestant perspectives. There is considerable overlap among the essays and responses--which are written from Catholic, Lutheran, and Calvinist perspectives--in their insistence that the public deployment of "natural law" language does not require its detachment from theology--that such detachment, in fact, is one source of moral chaos in contemporary policy debate. Each essay is followed by a formal response and a transcript of discussion among participants. The result is an informative glimpse into an important area of common ground in what appears to be a growing consensus among Evangelicals and Catholics regarding the place of religion in public policy debate.
