The selections comprising this Reader have been chosen from a wide variety of works relating law and theology, including a number of long out-of-print 17th and 18th century works defending Christian truth on the basis of legal method.

The purpose of this compilation is to introduce first-year law students to the great issues of jurisprudence, in line with the conviction of the editor that the meaning and significance of the law ought to ground all study of legal particulars. Only thus can legal education rise above the level of the sophisticated trade school, law graduates become true professionals rather than mere technicians, and the profession itself regain the stature it held when the word attorney made one think of the Inns of Court rather than the corruption of Watergate, junk bonds, Enron and the Great Financial Crisis.
