"If you want an absolute standard of justice (in order to handle the Nuremberg trials of the modern world), you are going to have to get it from outside the human situation."

In my opinion, the integration of theology and secular disciplines, or theology and culture, ought to take place. In this article, therefore, we're going to deal, first of all, with the subject of why law needs theology. And after we've done that, we're going to turn it around and we're going to see why theology needs law. As we do this, you'll be picking up apologetic approaches that it seems to me are vital for the effective proclamation of the gospel in the secular age.
