Abstract

This volume explores the interaction between Christianity and the challenges and principles of global law. By “global law,” we mean the emerging common law of humanity that transcends both the law of individual states and the international law between and among nations and regions. This volume presents freshly commissioned chapters by two dozen leading jurists, theologians, philosophers, political scientists, historians, and social scientists from North America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia. The chapters reflect the provisional, experimental, and sometimes controversial discourse about global law today.

Keywords: global law, Christianity, international law, global governance, rule of law, dignity, sovereignty
