Christian, meet your conscience. What do you do when you disagree with other Christians? How do you determine which convictions are negotiable and which are not? How do you get along with people who have different personal standards? All of these questions have to do with the conscience. Yet there is hardly a more neglected topic among Christians. In this much-needed book, a New Testament scholar and a cross-cultural missionary explore all thirty passages in the New Testament that deal with the conscience, showing how your conscience impacts virtually every aspect of life, ministry, and missions. As you come to see your conscience as a gift from God and learn how to calibrate it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, you will not only experience the freedom of a clear conscience but also discover how to lovingly interact with those who hold different convictions.

Judicial equity developed in England during the medieval period, providing an alternative access to justice for cases that the rigid structures of the common law could not accommodate. Where the common law was constrained by precedent and strict procedural and substantive rules, equity relied on principles of natural justice - or 'conscience' - to decide cases and right wrongs. Overseen by the Lord Chancellor, equity became one of the twin pillars of the English legal system with the Court of Chancery playing an ever greater role in the legal life of the nation. Yet, whilst the Chancery was commonly - and still sometimes is - referred to as a 'court of conscience', there is remarkably little consensus about what this actually means, or indeed whose conscience is under discussion. This study tackles the difficult subject of the place of conscience in the development of English equity during a crucial period of legal history. Addressing the notion of conscience as a juristic principle in the Court of Chancery during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the book explores how the concept was understood and how it figured in legal judgment. Drawing upon both legal and broader cultural materials, it explains how that understanding differed from modern notions and how it might have been more consistent with criteria we commonly associate with objective legal judgement than the modern, more 'subjective', concept of conscience. The study culminates with an examination of the chancellorship of Lord Nottingham (1673-82), who, because of his efforts to transform equity from a jurisdiction associated with discretion into one based on rules, is conventionally regarded as the father of modern, 'systematic' equity. From a broader perspective, this study can be seen as a contribution to the enduring discussion of the relationship between 'formal' accounts of law, which see it as systems of rules, and less formal accounts, which try to make room for intuitive moral or prudential reasoning.

Literate Americans encounter the word “conscience” yet scarcely pay any attention to its source, its proscriptions in human affairs, or its power to affect human conduct. The Conscience is a weapon for survival and a tool to correct, protect and guide the individual in the often troubled course of his or her life. These pages illustrate its applications and recognition down through human history, beginning at the Fall of Adam and Eve. Whether or not the reader shares that biblical account of human history is irrelevant. The actuality of conscience in human relations and in the historicity of world events cannot be denied. Our pioneers did not underscore the word, but every brave progress to settle America involved the conscience of moral and ethical decisions. Is the land ours? Should I risk my family’s lives to make this journey? What confi dence should I place in our caravan leader? How shall I honestly manage to survive without theft, murder or mayhem? The very reality of survival, whether against a military enemy or on wilderness excursion, calls upon the human conscience to discern the risks are or the sacrifi ce or potential loss of life in the doing. Miller has included several interesting illustrations— a poem that deals with presidential lack of discernment, a river trip that involves the choice of dangerous adventure or bank-side, and a brief drama that illustrates the confrontation of Caesar with the original Christians. The conscience is directed, usually unbeknownst to the possessor, by God’s moral law of love for one’s neighbor ie another human being made in God’s image. This law of the conscienced accounts for this great nation’s compassion toward the world . . . and condemns abortion. euthanasia and fratricide. It also controls and includes the process of justice to protect the innocent.
