Abstract

This short essay is a review of Stephen Grabill's book, Rediscovering the Natural Law in Reformed Theological Ethics. The book is an historical treatment of place of natural law thought in the magisterial Reformation. Its stated aim is to assist contemporary Protestant pastors, denominational officials, theologians, ethicists, public intellectuals, seminarians, graduate students and general readers to rediscover and rehabilitate natural law and related doctrinal concepts. The book, with its meticulously documented source material, will be especially valuable to legal scholars attempting to engage natural law from the perspective of Reformation theology or to find common ground between Protestant and Catholic legal thought.

Keywords: natural law, legal theory, theology, jurisprudence
