Jack Sammons is a man of enormous breadth of interests and expertise. This Symposium, with its diverse topics and contributors, is a testament to his remarkable range of thought, his unmatched creativity and originality, and his influence on generations of scholars. I am convinced that no one who has followed Jack's career for these past decades can keep up with him in all the paths he has trod. Fortunately, none of the contributors here have been asked to comment upon his entire range of scholarship.

Two areas in which Jack and I share an interest are legal ethics and Christian theology. My task in this Article is discussing the relationship between the two in Jack's thought.
