Readings on the Influence of Christian Thought in Anglo-American Law
Second Edition
By: Jeffrey A. Brauch

The common law formed the legal system that for more than 800 years defined and governed most legal rights and duties of citizens in England and later in the United States. This work tells the story of the development and evolution of the common law in our society. This second edition is designed to further the quest to look beyond legal rules and institutions to the legal philosophies that shaped them. The overall purpose of this work remains unchanged from the first edition. It does, however, reflect some important changes and updates in the content.

By: Jeffrey A. Brauch

The common law formed the legal system that for more than 800 years defined and governed most legal rights and duties in England and later in the United States. This work tells the story of the development and evolution of the common law in our society. This second edition is designed to further the quest to look beyond legal rules and institutions to the legal philosophies that shaped them. This book offers a slightly broader focus than the first edition as it focuses not only on the common law rules and institutions but also on current issues regarding international and constitutional law as well.

The Will to Believe

2009, Religion/Theology and the Law admin

And Other Essays in Popular Philosophy
By: William James

This work is a collection of lectures and essays given by James. It is named after and includes a lecture given in 1897 entitled “The Will to Believe” in which James defends the right to violate the principle of evidentialism in order to justify hypothesis venturing. Although this doctrine is often seen as a way for James to justify religious beliefs, his philosophy of pragmatism allows him to use the results of his hypothetical venturing as evidence to support the hypothesis’ truth. Therefore, this doctrine allows one to assume belief in God and prove its existence by what the belief brings to one’s life.

Readings on the Influence of Christian Thought in Anglo-American Law
Second Edition
By: Jeffrey A. Brauch

This second edition is designed to further the quest to look beyond legal rules and institutions to the legal philosophies that shaped them. The overall purpose and most of the readings remain unchanged, but some readings have been updated to reflect recent developments in the law, including critical race theory and jury reforms. This new edition also addresses issues regarding international and constitutional law, considering the moral and legal arguments regarding preemptive war and whether transgendered individuals have a fundamental human right to change their sexual identity on their birth certificate. This broader focus recognizes that many clashes over legal worldview are taking place outside the realm of the common law.
