Greenleaf [1783-1853] was Dane Professor at Harvard Law School during its formative period. An expert on evidence, his most important publication is his three-volume Treatise on the Law of Evidence [1842-1853], the standard textbook in American law throughout the Nineteenth century. Along with Joseph Story, he is responsible for the emergence of Harvard Law School and played an important role in the establishment of modern American legal scholarship. The Testimony of the Evangelists combines his juridical expertise and profound Christian faith. A fascinating work grounded in an impressive command of sources, it is also a landmark in the development of juridical apologetics, the defense of faith through legal reasoning.
