    Medieval Natural Law and the Reformation: A Comparison of Aquinas and Calvin.David Vandrunen - 2006 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 80 (1):77-98.
    An important aspect of the contemporary controversies over John Calvin’s natural law doctrine has been his relation to the medieval natural law inheritance. This paper attempts to put Calvin in better context through a detailed examination of his ideas on natural law, in comparison with those of Thomas Aquinas. I argue that significant points of both similarity and difference between them must berecognized. Among important similarities, I highlight their grounding of natural law in the divine nature and the relationship of (...)

    Wisdom and the Natural Moral Order: The Contribution of Proverbs to a Christian Theology of Natural Law.David VanDrunen - 2013 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 33 (1):153-168.
    Many recent Christian writers have called for the reintegration of natural law theory with biblical ethics. This essay takes up that challenge with focus on the book of Proverbs. Through a close study of several major themes in this book, it argues that Proverbs points toward a conception of natural law as natural moral order, a realist natural law epistemology, the reality of moral insight across cultural and religious divides, the appropriateness of pragmatic natural law arguments, and a profound modesty (...)

    The Protectionist Purpose of Law: A Moral Case From the Biblical Covenant with Noah.David VanDrunen - 2015 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 35 (2):101-117.
    Political and legal theorists sometimes assign attempts to define the purpose of law and government into one of two categories: protectionism indicates that law and government should protect people from the violation of their rights while perfectionism indicates that law and government should also actively promote virtue in the human community. In this essay I draw primarily from the biblical covenant with Noah, supplemented with other biblical and moral-theological considerations. I argue that protectionism, contrary to common assumptions, need not be (...)
