Abstract:     
Professor Harold Berman in his book, FAITH AND ORDER: THE RECONCILIATION OF LAW AND RELIGION, stated that there are three main theories or schools of legal philosophy in a world of legal diversity. He identifies them as the positivist school, the natural law school, and the historical school. In the vast majority of scholarly legal circles, positivism and natural law are viewed as irreconcilable, while the historical school is usually completely ignored. This note will explore the notion of a shared foundation to build and sustain what Berman would call an “ecumenical Christian jurisprudence” – and for that matter domestic and world law – based upon the Holy Trinity.
