All law is based upon morality, and morality is itself based upon religion. Therefore, when the religion of a people is weakened, so also is its morality undermined. The result is a progressive collapse of law and order, and the breakdown of society.

Men, though, see law as a limitation on their liberty, and Christianity is held to be the most restrictive with its emphasis All law is based upon morality, and morality is itself based upon religion. Men, though, see law as a limitation on their liberty, and Christianity is held to be the most restrictive with its emphasis upon Biblical law as the foundation for morality and liberty.

It is also a good introduction into the thinking and writing of R.

In relatively short segments, Rushdoony addresses everything from education to famine, and works through how God's Law applies to each situation. He drives home again and again that only God's Law order creates true liberty, prosperity, and peace. As advertised, this is an excellent introduction to the thought of Rushdoony. It's main weakness is that it is a collection of thirty-two short essays on a variety of topics--many of them interrelated.

But, being an introduction, he never delves very deeply on any single idea. Rushdoony has a very controversial and often polarizing reputation, but I found myself in near unanimous agreement with everything in the book. Most orthodox Christians that have given much thought to the issues would likel As advertised, this is an excellent introduction to the thought of Rushdoony.

Most orthodox Christians that have given much thought to the issues would likely agree with most of his conclusions in this short work.

This is a great place to start into the thought of Rushdoony and his cohorts. A great introduction to theonomy in general and Rushdoony in particular. Jun 16, London Tiner rated it it was amazing. Excellent book for an introduction to theonomic ideas. It is broken into small pg lectures so you can read it like a devotional if you choose. Feb 06, Michelle rated it it was amazing. I want to buy a whole box of full of this book so I can give away, Mr.

Rushdoony is so good at putting things into words - things I've merely thought of in passing, but was unable to articulate well. This is a very helpful book, it even forced me to reconsider some things I've held to. Very thought-provoking. Here's a good quote: "Leninism cannot be fought by men who mistake war for negotiations and a battle for a debate, and who cannot recognize when and where they are being attacked.

The Western liberal pays lip service to a few Christian ideas, holds to a Marxist environmentalism, and an English parliamentarianism. Like the mule, he is a hybrid, and just as sterile. The future can never be commanded by men who cannot command the present. The times call for Christian faith and realism; nothing less can command the day. Rushdoony, in his book Law and Liberty Jan 01, Joshua rated it it was amazing.

This short book is an excellent primer on the relationship between law and liberty, as the title indicates. So much of the culture today believes that law is a hindrance to their liberty or as they like to call it today, "freedom". Unfortunately, such a view is self-destructive, as it is the law that provides the limits upon human depravity, and teaches the standard of righteousness by which men may flourish together.

The Founding Fathers of our own nation wanted us to be governed by laws rath This short book is an excellent primer on the relationship between law and liberty, as the title indicates. The Founding Fathers of our own nation wanted us to be governed by laws rather than men, because they understood the sovereign nature of law, and its Sovereign backing--even if they were not orthodox and pious Christians. Rushdoony, which means that they are all somewhat disconnected from one another, but they're arranged in such a way to give a sort of consistency and flow to the book.

The advantage to this layout is that this will be a tremendous reference book. The titles are descriptive, so a quick read through the table of contents will quickly lead one to a chapter of relevance.

I would highly recommend this book. Jan 04, Rkeddins rated it it was amazing. Excellent brief reading for those thinking about political involvement. It exposes the dangers of libertarianism, conservatism, and liberalism. Jul 31, Raimund rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. Rushdoony does an excellent job of showing how the law in general and Biblical law specifically relate to our everyday lives and how we then should live knowing that our redemption is in Christ but our new live is now governed by living for God.

Jun 01, Jacob Aitken rated it really liked it. The premise is that all law has a moral base; therefore, all attempts at legislation by definition legislate morality. You won't find anything new in here that you didn't already see in Institutes. May 13, Douglas Wilson rated it liked it Shelves: church-and-culture. On the plus side of good. Jul 15, Christopher rated it liked it Shelves: theology , philosophy , christian-living , politics.

Theonomy applied to some current issues in society. Not bad. Rushdoony kind of wierds me out, though I can't quite put my finger on why. If you have already read that book, however, then I don't recommend reading this one as it will be somewhat repetitive.

Apr 05, Nathan Albright rated it it was amazing Shelves: challenge This book has an interesting history as part of the intensely prolific writings of this fairly typically prolific Theonomist writer. Given originally as a series of radio addresses in the 's, these books give a fair picture of the somewhat pointed relationship that Theonomists tend to have with people regarding issues of faith and politics.

Although it is not uncommon for me to read or reflect upon God's laws or humanistic corruptions of law [1], I tend to do so from a far different perspect This book has an interesting history as part of the intensely prolific writings of this fairly typically prolific Theonomist writer.

Although it is not uncommon for me to read or reflect upon God's laws or humanistic corruptions of law [1], I tend to do so from a far different perspective than that of this author. After all, those who tend towards the postmillennial optimism of the author and others like him are faced in the difficult position where they must continually rake others over the coals concerning the political systems of this world. Those who believe in a premillennial return of Jesus Christ to destroy the regimes of this world and set up a godly one under His rule have no such burden of engaging this world's corrupt political systems as rivals, because such regimes have an expiration date.

In large part, this approach accounts for a great deal of the stridency this work has concerning our existing political order. That is not to say that the author is wrong, but rather that this book lacks the charity that comes from viewing the political systems of this world as being consigned to the dustbin of prophecy. The almost two hundred pages of this book consist of thirty-two short chapters that revolve around questions of biblical law and politics.

Throughout the book the author reflects upon such questions as the inescapable nature of legislating morality, the sanctity of life, pornography, and the relationship between law and nature, the future, authority, chaos, evolution, alchemy, academic freedom, magic, government, and property.
