Throughout history, God's people have had every conceivable relationship to law. What do Scripture and Christian traditions teach about law? The focus of this course will be on civil or positive law with a spotlight on abortion, poverty, gay marriage, the environment, immigration, human trafficking, capital punishment, and the separation of church and state. Should Christians be concerned with these issues? How should Christians respond to unjust rulers? Can the practice of law be a Christian calling? This series includes Dr. Cochran's chapel talk and Evening Public Lecture.
