God’s ways are far above all human comprehension, and yet he has left his fingerprints upon creation, writing his glory upon the world and his law upon our hearts. Throughout the millenia, pagans and Christians alike have sought to discover in his handiwork the order which moves the world and draws each creature to its own proper end. Within this order, we find our flourishing as creatures. From Plato onward, philosophers and theologians have spoken of this order as a law, the “natural law,” upon which all human laws must be grounded if they are to be just and well-made.
