The Bible was not written as a handbook for lawyers, politicians, and civil servants setting out a theology of human law. Its concern is with the dealings of God with human beings and of human beings with God. A Biblical View Of Law and Justice seeks to wrestle with the biblical message of justice, giving lawyers, civil servants, and politicians a renewed vision and understanding of the potential of their work in the post-Christendom world.
