The Institutes of Biblical Law Volume I
By R. J. Rushdoony. Biblical Law is a plan for dominion under God, whereas its
rejection is to claim dominion on man’s terms. The general principles
(commandments) of the law are discussed as well as their
specific applications (case law) in Scripture. Many
consider this to be the author’s most important work.

Ten Commandments for Today (DVD)
We hear much about the search for virtue and defined morality. Ethics remains at
the center of discussion in sports, entertainment, politics, and education as our
culture gropes for a comprehensive standard to guide itself through the darkness
of the modern age. Very few consider the Bible as the rule of conduct and God
has been marginalized by the pluralism of our society.
Chalcedon Foundation presents a powerful solution to this dilemma in The Ten Commandments
for Today. This 12-part collection on two DVD’s contains several in-depth interviews with Dr.
R.J. Rushdoony, the foremost authority on Biblical law and its application to contemporary
society. Each commandment is covered in detail as Dr. Rushdoony challenges the humanistic
remedies that have obviously failed. Only through God’s revealed will as laid down in the Bible
can the standard for righteous living be found.
Rushdoony silences the critics of Christianity by outlining the rewards of obedience as well as
the consequences of disobedience to God’s word.
In a world craving answers, The Ten Commandments for Today provides an effective and
coherent solution - one that is guaranteed success.

Faith and Obedience: An Introduction to Biblical Law
By R. J. Rushdoony. Is God’s law opposed to love, grace, and faith? The Apostle
Paul makes clear in Roman 13:8-10 that love is the fulfilling of the law because
love puts law into action by respecting God’s requirements concerning life,
property, our neighbor, our enemy, and ourselves. If we commit adultery, we do
not love our spouse. If we are idolaters, we do not love God. Love is more than a
feeling; it is a way of life lived either in faith and obedience to God and His law, or in unbelief
and disobedience. Love is the law of God put into action by a person of faith. Therefore, it is the
grace of God that He has given us His commandments.
In this powerful introduction to Biblical law, R. J. Rushdoony reveals that to be born again
means that where you were once governed by your own word and spirit, you are now totally
governed by God’s Word and Spirit. This is because every word of God is a binding word. Our
money, our calling, our family, our sexuality, our political life, our economics, our sciences, our
art, and all things else must be subject to God’s Word and requirements.
The Scripture says that “the wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23), and that “sin is the transgression
of the law” (1 John 3:4). Therefore, to be lawless - without law - is leading our society to death.
Might this explain the disasters and collapses of our time? Can you see how important such a
study of God’s law would be? If so, then here is your introduction.

The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum (Third Edition)


By R. J. Rushdoony. The Christian School represents a break with humanistic
education, but, too often in leaving the state school, the Christian educator has
carried the state’s humanism with him.
A curriculum is not neutral: it is either a course in humanism or training in a God-
centered faith and life. The liberal arts curriculum means literally that course which trains
students in the arts of freedom. This raises the key question: is freedom in and of man or Christ?
The Christian art of freedom, that is, the Christian liberal arts curriculum, is emphatically not the

same as the humanistic one. It is urgently necessary for Christian educators to rethink the
meaning and nature of the curriculum.
It should be clear then that whether history, science, mathematics, grammar, literature, ecology,
civic duty, or law, every aspect of curriculum must be reconstructed along Biblical lines. The
overall objective is for Christian families to prepare and equip themselves for service in the
Kingdom of God, and this cannot be done without a rethinking of the philosophy of the Christian
curriculum. In this study, R. J. Rushdoony develops the philosophy of the Christian curriculum.
It is the pioneering study in this field, and it is important reading for all Christian educators.

The Harsh Truth about Public Schools


By Bruce Shortt. This book combines a sound Biblical basis, rigorous research,
straightforward, easily read language, and eminently sound reasoning. It is a
thoroughly documented description of the inescapably anti-Christian thrust of any
governmental school system and the inevitable results: moral relativism (no fixed
standards), academic dumbing down, far-left programs, near absence of discipline,
and the persistent but pitiable rationalizations offered by government education professionals.
“This book presents an idea whose time has come. Modern public education in America has too
often degenerated into indoctrination in secular humanism. This book presents the solution to the
problem.” ~ D. James Kennedy, Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Ministries

Intellectual Schizophrenia
By R. J. Rushdoony. The title of this book is particularly significant in that Dr.
Rushdoony was able to identify the basic contradiction that pervades a secular
society that rejects God’s sovereignty by still needs law and order, justice, science,
and meaning to life. Secular man wants to use the thinks of creation while denying
their creator. As Dr. Rushdoony writes, “there is no law, no society, no justice, no
structure, no design, no meaning apart from God.” And so, modern man has become
schizophrenic. He wants to assert his autonomy while rejecting the divine order that gives
meaning to life. To the humanist, the aim of living is something he calls the “good life.” For the
nihilist, it is violence and death.
Dr. Rushdoony saw cultural schizophrenia as a split between thought and feeling, a withdrawal
from the reality of God and a flight into fantasies of world government achieved through an

unattainable unity. Utopians are undeniably schizophrenic. They want a heaven on earth, which
can only be achieved by coercion and enslavement. But perhaps what they really want, as
depraved human beings, is coercion and enslavement, and use utopian idealism to deceive and
entrap the gullible.
Nor is it by accident that the government schools now lavish so much time on death education,
which has been marbleized throughout the curriculum. As Dr. Rushdoony writes: “For man to
turn his back on God, therefore, is to turn towards death.” And this is exactly what the
government schools have done. Add to this, multiculturalism, transcendental meditation,
sensitivity training, explicit sex education, drug education, evolution, behavioral psychology,
humanism, whole language, and other such programs, and you get a curriculum that is so
profoundly anti-Christian that one wonders how any Christian parent or minister can condone
putting a Christian child in a government school.

The Messianic Character of American Education


By R. J. Rushdoony. Rushdoony’s study tells us an important part of American
history: exactly what has public education been trying to accomplish? Before the
1830s and Horace Mann, no schools in the U.S. were state supported or state
controlled. They were local, parent-teacher enterprises, supported without taxes,
and taking care of all children. They were remarkably high in standard and were
Christian. From Mann to the present, the state has used education to socialize the child. The
school’s basic purpose, according to its own philosophers, is not education in the traditional
sense of the 3 R’s. Instead, it is to promote “democracy” and “equality,” not in their legal or
civic sense, but in terms of the engineering of a socialized citizenry. Public education became the
means of creating a social order of the educators design. Such men saw themselves and the
school in messianic terms. This book was instrumental in launching the Christian school and
homeschool movements.

Mathematics: Is God Silent?
By James Nickel. This book revolutionizes the prevailing understanding and
teaching of math. The addition of this book is a must for all upper-level Christian
school curricula and for college students and adults interested in math or related
fields of science and religion. It will serve as a solid refutation for the claim, often
made in court, that mathematics is one subject, which cannot be taught from a
distinctively Biblical perspective.

The Foundations of Christian Scholarship


Edited by Gary North. Christian commentators have pointed to the contradictions
of the modern world, and they have asserted that the answers to these
contradictions can be found in Christianity. “The Bible has the answers,”
Christians tell their friends, their children, and themselves. Yet whenever pastors
or Christian instructors confront the congregations (or each other) with concrete
requirements of biblical law, the instant response in that “the churches shouldn’t meddle in
things that don’t concern them,” meaning politics, economics, or anything else that might prove
controversial, or even worse, disruptive of prevailing ecclesiastical, academic, or business
practices. The Bible has the answers for every problem, but these are supposed to remain vague
generalities except when in accord with the accepted cultural heritage of the denomination or
congregation in question.
Things are not much better on campuses of Christian colleges. Very few instructors ever attempt
to fuse the teachings of Scripture with their academic disciplines, requiring the methodology,
facts, and presuppositions of their discipline to be conformed or reformed according to biblical
revelation. Hence, a kind of intellectual schizophrenia exists on every Christian campus. Secular
textbooks are baptized with a morning prayer or daily-required chapel.
Here and there we do find faculties that do contain a few members who see the need for
Christian reconstruction in every branch of the college curriculum. The essays in this volume
represent a beginning. Too many academic disciplines are absent from its pages, but at least a
preliminary start has been made. The writers are committed to the interpretive principle of
biblical a priorism: the Bible judges both the framework and the content of each academic
discipline.
Either the Bible is the final standard for all human thought or else the logic of the self-appointed
autonomous mind of man. The mind of man is not autonomous; it is derivative, created, and
ethically fallen. It now labors under the curse of god. It is not the standard of truth in any region

of the universe. Hence, men must bring their speculations back into subjection to the revelation
of God.
If education is to be seriously, consistently Christian, an intellectual reformation is required. It
will be resisted more forcefully by those within the camp of the faithful who believe that
intellectual schizophrenia, if baptized early enough, is the hallmark of mental health. Judgment
begins at the house of the Lord. So does reconstruction.

The Victims of Dick and Jane


By Samuel L. Blumenfeld. America’s most effective critic of public education

curriculum to create citizens suitable for their own vision of a utopian socialist
society. This collection of essays will show you how and why America’s public
education declined. You will see the educator-engineered decline of reading skills.
The author describes the causes for the decline and the way back to competent education
methodologies that will result in a self-educated, competent, and freedom-loving populace.

Revolution via Education


By Samuel L. Blumenfeld. From the Preface: “In these essays I have tried to show
how our country has been in the throes of an ongoing socialist revolution since the
turn of the last century. And it has been engineered by real people with real names
who consider themselves to be Americans but who have been doing all in their
power to change the form of government given us by our Founding Fathers. The
two major underpinnings of socialist, ungodly, controlled society are public education and the
income tax. We shall not be a free people until we get rid of both institutions.”
In this book, Samuel Blumenfeld gets to the root of our crisis: our spiritual state and the need for
an explicitly Christian form of education.
Blumenfeld leaves nothing uncovered. He examines the men, methods, and means to the socialist
project to transform America into an outright tyranny by scientific controllers.
This book is not for the faint of heart. It’s a wakeup call to the church to make certain and
deliberate steps to raising up a generation of Kingdom-builders.

The Workbook teaches our alphabetic system - with its 26 letters and 44 sounds - in the
following sequence: First, the alphabet, then the short vowels and consonants, the consonant
digraphs, followed by the consonant blends, and finally the long vowels in their variety of
spellings and our other vowels.
This program can be used to teach reading to beginners of all ages, older students in need of
remediation, non-readers, adults who wish to improve their reading skills, dyslexics, the learning
disabled, and non-English speakers who wish to learn to read English and improve their
pronunciation.
It can also be used as a supplement to any other reading program being used in the classroom. Its
systematic approach to teaching basic phonetic skills makes it particularly valuable to programs
that lack such instruction.
All of the lesson pages were carefully designed to eliminate distraction and help the learner focus
his or her attention on the work at hand. The program, as a whole, is flexible enough so that any
parent, teacher, or tutor can adapt it to his or her own teaching style or situation.
If you have never taught reading before in this sensible, systematic way, you will be pleasantly
surprised by the results.

A Critique of Modern Education


Rushdoony helped launch the revolution in Christian education, and these
four lectures feature some of the classic themes in his educational
philosophy. The state, acting as savior, utilizes education as a means of
creating a new humanity-one that is anti-God, anti-biblical, and humanistic.
Only a thoroughly Christian education can reverse the push towards the City of Man, and create
a people made ready for the City of God.

This Independent Republic
By R. J. Rushdoony. First published in 1964, this series of essays gives important
insight into American history by one who could trace American development in
terms of the Christian ideas which gave it direction.
These essays will greatly alter your understanding of, and appreciation for,
American history. Topics discussed include: the legal issues behind the War of
Independence; sovereignty as a theological tenet foreign to colonial political thought and the
Constitution; the desire for land as a consequence of the belief in inheriting the land as a future
blessing, not an immediate economic asset; federalism’s localism as an inheritance of feudalism;
the local control of property as a guarantee of liberty; why federal elections were long considered
of less importance than local politics; how early American ideas attributed to democratic thought
were based on religious ideals of communion and community; and the absurdity of a
mathematical concept of equality being applied to people.

The Nature of the American System


By R. J. Rushdoony. Behind the writing of history is a philosophy of history, and
behind that philosophy of history are certain pre-theoretical and essentially
religious presuppositions. There is no such thing as brute factuality, but rather only
interpreted factuality. The historian’s report is always the report of a perspective, a
context, a framework; man is not, like God, beyond time and circumstance,
condition and place. Man is neither a prime mover nor a prime viewer, but, to deny to man the
status of a first cause and a first view is by no means to deny the validity or function of
secondary causes and secondary viewers.
The writing of history is always in terms of a framework, a philosophical and ultimately religious
conceptual structure in the mind of the historian. To the orthodox Christian, the shabby
incarnations of the reigning historiographies are both absurd and offensive. They are idols, and
he is forbidden to bow down to them and must indeed wage war against them. A Christian
historiography and a Christian revisionism are thus for him moral imperatives.
For Christian revisionism, there is thus an incarnation that stands as the central point in history,
Jesus Christ, and, this incarnation was without confusion of the eternal and the temporal, the
divine and the human. This requires a denial of any coming, continuing, or possible incarnation

in any historical order or institution. The divinization of church, state, school, or any other
institution, or its absorption into the incarnation, is thus a sign of paganism.
These essays are studies in Christian revisionism. Their purpose is to call attention those aspects
of American history currently neglected.
Originally published in 1965, these essays were a continuation of the author’s previous work,
This Independent Republic.

The Influence of Historic Christianity on Early America


By Archie P. Jones. What should be clear is that early America was founded upon
the deep, extensive influence Christianity on Western, particularly English or
British though and culture. Early American society, culture, and thought were
founded upon the historic Christianity inherited from the medieval period and the
Protestant Reformation. That heritage was and is a priceless heritage. It is a
heritage that is made greater by the fact that it was not limited to the narrow confines of the
personal life of the individual, nor to the ecclesiastical structure of Christian influence reached
beyond religion in the narrow sense in which most Americans today are accustomed to think of
religion.
The impact of historic Christianity gave early Americans a great Christian heritage because it
positively and predominantly (though not perfectly) shaped culture, education, science, literature,
legal thought, legal education, and political thought. It shaped the fundamental laws of the
several states and of the nation, the conduct of political life (or at least much of it), the provision
for charity, and the launching of missions to the unsaved individuals and peoples within these
United States and in foreign lands.

Biblical Faith and American History


By R. J. Rushdoony. America was a break with the neoplatonic view of religion that
dominated the medieval church. The Puritans and other groups saw Scripture as
guidance for every area of life because they viewed its author as the infallible
Sovereign over every area. America’s fall into Arminianism and revivalism,
however, was a return to the neoplatonic error that transferred the world from
Christ’s shoulders to man’s. The author saw a revival ahead in Biblical faith.

The Future of the Conservative Movement


Chalcedon Contemporary Issues Series, Volume I
Edited by Andrew Sandlin. The Future of the Conservative Movement explores the
history, accomplishments, and decline of the conservative movement; and lays the
foundation for a viable substitute to today’s compromising, floundering
conservatism.
Because the conservative movement, despite its many sound features (including anti-statism and
anti-Communism), was not anchored in an unchangeable standard, it eventually was hijacked
from within and transformed into a scaled-down version of the very liberalism it was originally
calculated to combat.

The Late Great GOP and the Coming Realignment


By Colonel V. Doner. For more than three decades, most Christian conservatives in
the United States have hitched their political wagon to the plodding elephant of the
Republican Party.
Alas, but the old elephant led them where they did not want to go. Time and again,
election after election, the same Republicans who as candidates ostentatiously courted Christian
conservatives, when elected reversed themselves, unceremoniously shutting the door in the face
of the very Christians who worked so diligently to get them into office, and pursued policies
antithetical to conservative Christianity.
This work is a call to arms for those weary of political vacillation and committed more firmly
than ever to the necessity of a truly Christian social order.

The American Indian: A Standing Indictment of Christianity & Statism in


America
By R. J. Rushdoony. Long before state health care or food stamps, before the
creation of welfare ghettoes in our major cities, America’s first experiment with
socialism and government dependency practically destroyed the American Indian.

Government experts created the Indian reservations. America’s churches whole-heartedly
supported it, convinced the reservation would be the key to winning souls for Christianity.
In 1944 young R. J. Rushdoony arrived at the Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada as a
missionary to the Shoshone and the Paiute Indians. For eight years he lived with them, worked
with them, ministered to them and listened to their stories. He came to know them intimately,
both as individuals and as a people. This is his story, and theirs.
It is also the story of an experiment that failed, disastrously—and exercise in statist paternalism
and ineffective Christian meddling whose effects ravage the Indians to this day. The reservation
system debased the people it was meant to serve, and the churches failed in their mission; until,
in the end, the proud and resourceful Indian was transformed into “a defeated man, lacking in
character.” This is Rushdoony’s eyewitness testimony to that failure.
Today, as America’s leaders expand the welfare state and radically transform the entire nation,
we’d do well to reconsider this first experiment in government dependency and a Christianity
stripped of God’s law—before all of the United States is transformed into a massive reservation
on a continental scale. Rushdoony’s description of our past is also an indictment of our statist
future.

Our Threatened Freedom: A Christian View of the Menace of American


Statism
By R. J. Rushdoony. Far from carrying out its Biblical mandate to be a terror to
evildoers, civil government in America has increasingly become a terror to its law-
abiding citizens.
R. J. Rushdoony’s essays seem even more timely today as we are witnessing a staggering display
of state intrusion into every area of life. This is the outcome of humanistic thinking. It is the end
result of political salvation as both Left and Right continue to practice the belief that we can
somehow get better—or less—government by way of politics. However, Rushdoony’s comments
are pastoral and theological, not political. He did not spin the issues for political gain, but spoke
as a man who feared God and desired to know how God’s Word was applicable to our times.
Throughout these concise, insightful essays, you will see that true and lasting freedom is the end
result of responsible, faithful Christians exercising self-government in terms of God’s Word.

A Christian Survey of World History
Includes 12 audio CDs, full text supporting the lectures, review questions,
discussion questions, and an answer key.
The purpose of a study of history is to shape the future. Too much of
history teaching centers upon events, persons, or ideas as facts but does not
recognize God’s providential hand in judging humanistic man in order to
build His Kingdom. History is God-ordained and presents the great battle
between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Man. History is full of purpose—each
Kingdom has its own goal for the end of history, and those goals are in constant conflict. A
Christian Survey of World History can be used as a stand-alone curriculum, or as a supplement
to a study of world history.

The Biblical Philosophy of History


By R. J. Rushdoony. For the orthodox Christian who grounds his philosophy of
history on the doctrine of creation, the mainspring of history is God. Time rests on
the foundation of eternity, on eternal decree of God. Time and history therefore
have meaning because they were created in terms of God’s perfect and totally
comprehensive plan. The humanist faces a meaningless world in which he must
strive to create and establish meaning. The Christian accepts a world which is totally meaningful
and in which every event moves in terms of God’s purpose; he submits to God’s meaning and
finds his life therein. This is an excellent introduction to Rushdoony. Once the reader sees

James I: The Fool as King


By Otto Scott. This is the first of four volumes on extraordinary fools whose follies
influenced the course of all our lives. Without them, history would have been
different, and our lives would today be lived along patterns beyond our powers to
imagine.
James I and VI was a great fool. He threw away a tremendous inheritance and a superb
opportunity for the basest of motives, while indulging himself in the comforts of the sewer.
While bemusing his subjects with windy references to peace, he led them impotent disarmament
before a crumbling Spain. Finally, he trained his doltish heir into a pattern of “kingly” behavior
that provoked a civil war.
Beyond that, James was a fool in the Biblical sense, in believing that “there is no God.” He
called himself The Prince of Peace, and dreamed of sitting down with the Pope to rule the minds
of all mankind. He spoke of his “Divine Right” in a transparent effort to ward away the fate of
his mother, and finally, he sought the power of God over other men.

The “Atheism” of the Early Church
By R. J. Rushdoony. Early Christians were called “heretics” and “atheists” when
they denied the gods of Rome, in particular the divinity of the emperor and the
statism he embodied in his personality cult. These Christians knew that Jesus
Christ, not the state, was their Lord and that this faith required a different kind of
relationship to the state than the state demanded. Because Jesus Christ was their
acknowledged Sovereign, they consciously denied such esteem to all other claimants. Today the
church must take a similar stand before the modern state.

The Foundations of Social Order: Studies in the Creeds and Councils of the
Early Church
By R. J. Rushdoony. Every social order rests on a creed, on a concept of life and
law, and represents a religion in action. Wherever there is an attack on the
organization of society, there is an attack on its religion. The basic faith of a
society means growth in terms of that faith, but any tampering with its basic
structure is revolutionary activity. The life of a society is its creed; a dying creed faces desertion
or subversion readily. Every creed, however healthy, is also under continual attack; the culture
which neglects to defend and further its creedal base is exposing its heart to the enemy’s knife.
Because of its indifference to its creedal basis in Biblical Christianity, western civilization is
today facing death and is in a life and death struggle with humanism.
Today humanism is the creedal basis of the various democratic and socialistic movements. The
clearer the humanism, the more direct its use of power, because it operates in terms of a
consistency of principle. The conservatives attempt to retain the political forms of the Christian
West with no belief in Biblical Christianity. Apart from vague affirmations of liberty, they
cannot defend their position philosophically. They, therefore, become fact-finders: they try to
oppose the humanists by documenting their cruelty, corruption, and abuse of office. If the facts
carry any conviction to the people, they lead them only to exchange one set of radical humanists
for reforming radical humanists. It is never their faith in the system which is shaken, but only in
a form or representative of that system. The success of the subversives rests on their attack on the
creed of the establishment, and its replacement by a new creed.

Then the foundations are provided, the general form of the building is determined. When the
creed is accepted, the social order is determined. There can, therefore, be no reconstruction of the
Christian civilization of the west except on Christian creedal foundations.

The Relevance of the Reformed Faith (CD Set)


The 2007 Chalcedon Foundation Fall Conference
If the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is to bring transformation to this
world, it must return without compromise to the tenets of the Reformed
faith. The man-centered gospel of the modern church is wreaking havoc on
Christian civilization as we are witnessing the fallout of revivalism, individualism, pietism, and
retreatism. Only the God-centered theology of the Reformation applied to every area of life can
supply the resources necessary for building Christian civilization.

The Death of Meaning


By R. J. Rushdoony. For centuries on end, humanistic philosophers have produced
endless books and treatises which attempt to explain reality without God or the
mediatory work of His Son, Jesus Christ. Modern philosophy has sought to explain
man and his thought process without acknowledging God, His Revelation, or
man’s sin. God holds all such efforts in derision and subjects their authors and
adherents to futility. Philosophers who rebel against God are compelled to abandon meaning
itself, for they possess neither the tools nor the place to anchor it. The works of darkness
championed by philosophers past and present need to be exposed and reproved.
In this volume, Dr. Rushdoony clearly enunciates each major philosophers position and its
implications, identifies the intellectual and moral consequences of each school of thought, and

traces the dead-end to which each naturally leads. There is only one foundation. Without Christ,
meaning and morality are anchored to shifting sand, and a counsel of despair prevails. This
penetrating yet brief volume provides clear guidance, even for laymen unfamiliar with
philosophy.

The Word of Flux: Modern Man and the Problem of Knowledge


By R. J. Rushdoony. Modern man has a problem with knowledge. He cannot
accept God’s Word about the world or anything else, so anything which points to
God must be called into question. Man, once he makes himself ultimate, is unable
to know anything but himself. Because of this impasse, modern thinking has
become progressively pragmatic. This book will lead the reader to understand that
this problem of knowledge underlies the isolation and self-torment of modern man. Can you
know anything if you reject God and His revelation? This book takes the reader into the heart of
modern man’s intellectual dilemma.

To Be As God: A Study of Modern Thought Since the Marquis De Sade


By R. J. Rushdoony. This monumental work is a series of essays on the influential
thinkers and ideas in modern times. The author begins with De Sade, who self-
consciously broke with any Christian basis for morality and law. Enlightenment
thinking began with nature as the only reality, and Christianity was reduced to one
option among many. It was then, in turn, attacked as anti-democratic and anti-
freedom for its dogmatic assertion of the supernatural. Literary figures such as Shelly, Byron,
Whitman, and more are also examined, for the Enlightenment presented both the intellectual and
the artist as replacement for the theologian and his church. Ideas, such as “the spirit of the age,”
truth, reason, Romanticism, persona, and Gnosticism are related to the desire to negate God and
Christian ethics. Reading this book will help you understand the need to avoid the syncretistic
blending of humanistic philosophy with the Christian faith.

By What Standard?
By R. J. Rushdoony. An introduction into the problems of Christian philosophy. It
focuses on the philosophical system of Dr. Cornelius Van Til, which in turn is
founded upon the presuppositions of an infallible revelation in the Bible and the
necessity of Christian theology for all philosophy.
Basic to this study is the belief that presuppositions of human thought in every field must be
basically one in order to arrive at any concept which both validates biblical faith and human
knowledge. The sovereignty of the self-contained God is the key to every field, in that only the
God of Scripture makes all things possible and explicable and is thus the basic premise not only
of theology, but of philosophy, science and indeed all knowledge. In that God is the Creator of
all things. He is their only valid principle of interpretation, in that they derive both their existence
and meaning from His creative act. This belief is herein set forth in terms of various aspects of
human thought.
Again basic to this study is the belief that such a philosophy finds consistent and able exposition
in the writings of Cornelius Van Til. This work, therefore, is thus both an exposition as well of
Van Til’s development of that philosophy, a school of thought to which the author subscribes.
This is Rushdoony’s foundational work on philosophy.

Van Til & The Limits of Reason


By R. J. Rushdoony. The Enlightenment was an intellectual movement of the late
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that was a self-conscious move away from the
Reformation’s emphasis on faith and revelation. It was the mind of man that
became the new standard. “My own mind is my own church,” wrote Thomas Paine
in his Age of Reason (Part First, 1794), which was an attack on all religion that
claimed to be authoritative and Christianity in particular. It is not without case that Paine’s title is
sometimes used as a synonym for the Enlightenment. Its rationalism saw faith as a blind
confidence, a belief in nothing, while Hebrews 11:3 tells us it is “through faith we understand…”
The Christian must see faith in God’s revelation as opening up understanding, as thinking God’s
thoughts after Him, and rationalism as a restriction of thought to the narrow confines of human
understanding. Reason is a gift of God, but we must not make more of it than it is. To see our
reason as supreme is to see ourselves as supreme, and thereby repeat the sin of seeking to “be as
gods” (Gen. 3:5).

The first three essays of this volume were published in a small booklet in 1960 as a tribute to the

The One and the Many: Studies in the Philosophy of Order and Ultimacy
By R. J. Rushdoony. The question of where ultimacy lies should be central to the
Christian. It is easy to see the social implications of allowing priority to fall to
either the one or the many. This volume examines in-depth the Christian solution
to the problem of the one and the many - the Trinitarian God. Only in the godhead
is this dilemma resolved. Only in the Trinity does there reside an equal ultimacy of
unity and plurality. Rushdoony examines the history of Western thought from the standpoint of
the one and the many and demonstrates clearly that the most astute thinkers were unable to
resolve this philosophical conflict. What is needed now is a complete return to the Trinitarian
view of God and its implications for a Christian social order.

The Flight from Humanity: A Study of the Effect of Neoplatonism on


Christianity (Second Edition)
By R. J. Rushdoony. The greatest threats to Christianity are those that are most
unknown to the average Christian. The most difficult threats to discern are those
that are blended into our very worldview - the ones that we think are true. The
Scripture warns, “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that
darkness!” (Mt. 6:23), i.e., the worst kind of darkness is the darkness we think is light.
One of the most neglected but pervasive threats to the Christian world and life view is that of
neoplatonism. This leftover of ancient Greek philosophy is grounded upon a dual aspect to
reality: It views that which is form or spirit (such as mind) as good an that which is physical
(flesh) as evil. Neoplatonism is a “dialectical” philosophy that tries to reconcile two basically
hostile concepts and retain both within its system.
Neoplatonism presents man’s dilemma as a metaphysical one, whereas Scripture presents it as a
moral problem. Basing Christianity on this false neoplatonic idea will always shirt the faith away
from the Biblical perspective. Modern ideas of spirituality have developed into a form of over
against the Biblical model where the Spirit of God is active in the world and in the person to

work out the will of God. Too many Christians believe they can escape sin if they can escape the
material world. But Scripture says all of man fell into sin, not just his flesh.
Flight From Humanity is a revealing look into the nature and effect of neoplatonism on
contemporary Christian thought, and it offers sound Biblical solutions for the believer who
desires to fully serve God.

Politics of Guilt and Pity


By R. J. Rushdoony. From the foreword by Steve Schlissel: “Rushdoony sounds
the clarion call of liberty for all who remain oppressed by Christian leaders who
wrongfully lord it over the souls of God’s righteous ones... I pray that the entire
book will not only instruct you in the method and content of a Biblical worldview,
but actually bring you further into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
Those who walk in wisdom’s ways become immune to the politics of guilt and pity.”
Man has trampled God’s law under foot. In doing so, he has misused himself and trampled on
the God-given rights of his fellowman. He is conscious of his guilt, and seeks self-justification
through self-atonement.

The author makes it perfectly clear that there is only one way of escape from present slough and

sacrifice of His Son. And true repentance includes a return to the doing of God’s will as revealed
in God’s Word, the Bible.

Revolt Against Maturity


By. R. J. Rushdoony. Revolt Against Maturity is a study of Biblical psychology.
Biblical psychology contrasts sharply with a science of the mind based on the
religious presuppositions of humanism, which regards man as having no constant
nature. A science of the mind based on humanism views the mind as a clean slate,
and man’s nature as plastic to be molded by men and institutions in the image of
man for the new order he will establish. The Biblical view sees Psychology as a branch of
theology; theology is a study of all that the Scriptures declare about God. Theology is essential
not only to the study of psychology, but to ethics, anthropology, soteriology, eschatology, etc.
Biblical Psychology assumes that man is created in the image of God directly, and not indirectly
through theistic—or any other kind of evolution. Being created directly by God, man is not in the
process of defining or determining his ontological qualities. Man has already been determined
and defined by God. Thus it is God who has established the limits and nature of the mind.
The mind of regenerate man experiences radically different motives and presuppositions from
those of unregenerate man. The author sees the central task of Christian Psychology as that of
discerning the mind and soul differences that exist between the regenerate and unregenerate.
Pastoral counseling should first seek to establish whether or not a person is truly regenerate, and
then aid the regenerate to further growth in sanctification.
Work was to have provided the joy of fulfillment in God’s goal of maturity for man, but because
of the curse man is often subject to the frustration of meaningless and degrading work. True
work is the exercise of dominion over the creation under God. When man’s work is separated
from dominion of the created world, he is often subject to moral and religious paralysis and
becomes a sick soul.
Man suffers similarly when he abstracts God from reality. Since God created everything, nothing
can be interpreted apart from God. When man attempts this impossibility, he suffers
psychologically. True knowledge of anything is revelational of God. Thus, an aspect of man’s
revolt against maturity and against life is his revolt against knowledge. Psychological damaging
is inevitable for those in revolt against the maturity which the God of all life and all knowledge
has purposed for man

27
The certain and true guilt which the human personality suffers because of sin can be alleviated
only when God effects regeneration through the atoning blood of Christ. Thus having laid aside
the old self with its evil practices, the new self is being renewed to a true knowledge according to
the image of the One who created him in righteousness and holiness of the truth. (Col. 3:10; Eph.
4:24) In the general or wider sense, the image of God in man means that man like God is a
personality. The author notes that “in the redeemed man, this means that man becomes
progressively more and more a person, self-conscious in his growth and character (as opposed to
being unconscious of his nature), and steadily manifesting more and more the image of God in
knowledge, righteousness, holiness, and dominion.” Sanctification is unto holiness by which
man realizes his chief end: to glorify God and enjoy Him forever: But because of his revolt
against maturity man continues to suffer psychological damage both personally and collectively
through the chaotic condition of his mind and his culture.

Freud
By R. J. Rushdoony. For years this compact examination of Freud has been out of
print. And although both Freud and Rushdoony have passed on, their ideas are still
very much in collision. Rush shows conclusively the error of Freud’s thought and
the disastrous consequences of his influence in society.
As long as man views guilt as a problem for science instead of religion, the influence of Sigmund
Freud will remain lurking in the mind of modern man. Freud was an architect of the modern
world — an unholy builder — like Marx and Darwin. Freud was also a hater of religion —
specifically the Bible and its absolute standard. He believed Biblical theism to be the “delusion”
which compounded man’s central problem of guilt. Freud wanted man to accept his moral
predicament without reference to sin.
This analysis of one of history’s most insidious players will provide insight into the modern rush
to abolish Christianity and Biblical thought.

The Cure of Souls: Recovering the Biblical Doctrine of Confession
By R. J. Rushdoony. Hypocrisy replaces virtue when men cover their sins rather
than confess them to God. This is all too common when men do not preach and
practice a Biblical doctrine of confession. The challenge is first to restore the
meaning of confession as taught in the Scriptures. As long as confession is seen as
a Romanist doctrine, we have no hope of recovering this vital aspect of
Christianity.
In this path-breaking volume R. J. Rushdoony examines the Biblical teaching on confession and
sets it over against the errors of Romanism and the neo-Freudianism of modern Christian
counseling. Despite the subject matter this book is remarkably readable and is sure to empower
both clergy and laity as they discover the powerful tool of Biblical confession.

The Mythology of Science


By R. J. Rushdoony. The “mythology” of science is its religious devotion to the
myth of evolution. In evolution, man is the highest expression of intelligence and
reason, and such thinking will not yield itself to submission to a God it views as a
human cultural creation, useful, if at all, only in a cultural context.
Views of origins are dependent on faith, and one’s position speaks much as to one’s religious
tenets. Evolutionary faith, however, cannot tolerate any view of the natural world or science that
places it under another faith, such as the Christian belief in a sovereign causative God. Darwin
gave an ostensibly scientific justification for man’s rebellion against God. He put men at the top
of the evolutionary ladder, allowing them to believe they had realized Satan’s lure to Adam and
Eve and become “as gods, knowing [determining] good and evil” (Genesis 3:5).
We can attack the science of evolution all we want, but the battle for our faith, true science, and
our culture is a religious one over the nature of truth. Evolution is a religious faith that has
become entrenched as a presupposition of modern thought. For Christians to argue about the
“unproven” nature of the evolutionary hypothesis or the circular reasoning of its thought is of
some value, but the essential issue is that two opposing religious faiths are in conflict. Evolution
is popular because it is such a useful paradigm to sinful men; it dispenses with God as a
prerequisite of all things. But Christianity as a religious faith depends not on proofs that are
constructions of man’s fallen mind, but on the reality of an almighty God who reveals Himself to

us by grace. Christianity, too, depends on circular reasoning: we even begin and end with faith in
God and His revelation.
The purpose of this book (first published in 1967) is to define the nature of the opposing
religious systems of thought, Christian creationism and Darwinism (in its various forms). It is a
call to urge Christians to stand firm for Biblical six-day creationism as a fundamental aspect of
their faith in the Creator.

Alive: An Enquiry into the Origin and Meaning of Life


By Dr. Magnus Verbrugge, M.D. This study is of major importance as a critique of
scientific theory, evolution, and contemporary nihilism in scientific thought. Dr.
Verbrugge, son-in-law of the late Dr. H. Dooyeweerd and head of the Dooyeweerd
Foundation, applies the insights of Dooyeweerd ’s thinking to the realm of science.
Animism and humanism in scientific theory are brilliantly discussed.

Creation According to the Scriptures


Edited by P. Andrew Sandlin. The debate over literal, six-day creation within the
“conservative” camp is surely not a tempest in a teapot. While it is fair to
acknowledge that sincere Christians appear on both sides of the debate, it is not
correct to deduce from that literal, six-day creation is an issue on which there can
be a reasonable, brotherly disagreement. Latitudinarians who point out that these
has been no consensus on this issue in the orthodox Christian church should realize that there has
been no consensus in the orthodox church on the doctrine of justification either, but that fact
does not suggest we may hold a latitudinarian view of it. We unswerving advocates of literal,
six-day creation are not contending that those who disagree with us are not Christians. We are,
however, contending that they do not believe in a Christian manner on this issue.
Subtitled A Presuppositional Defense of Literal Six-Day Creation, this symposium by thirteen
authors is a direct frontal assault on all latitudinarian and otherwise waffling views of Biblical
Creation. It explodes the “Framework Hypothesis,” so dear to the hearts of many respectability-
hungry Calvinists, and it throws down the gauntlet to all who believe they can maintain a
consistent view of Biblical infallibility while abandoning literal, six-day creation.

Larceny in the Heart: The Economics of Satan and the Inflationary State
By R.J. Rushdoony. Why are the most successful and advanced members of
society often deemed to be the criminals? In a word - Envy.
The envious man finds superiority in others intolerable, and he wishes to level and
equalize all things. Many sociologists and social scientists turn this hatred and
resentment into “virtue” under the guise of “social science” by calling it a demand for fraternity
and equality.
In this concise volume, Rushdoony uncovers the larceny in the heart of man and its results: class
warfare and conflict society in which the rise of hostility and envy are seen as steps towards
social progress, when in fact they lead to disaster. The political solutions posited lead to an
inflationary economy and an overbearing state.
This book is a must-read to gain a biblical understand of the underlying tenets of this codified
coveting and the only certain long-term cure.

Genesis, Volume I of Commentaries on the Pentateuch


By R. J. Rushdoony. Genesis begins the Bible, and is foundational to it. In recent
years, it has become commonplace for both humanists and churchmen to sneer at
anyone who takes Genesis 1-11 as historical. Yet to believe in the myth of
evolution is to accept trillions of miracles to account for our cosmos. Spontaneous
generation, the development of something out of nothing, and the blind belief in the
miraculous powers of chance, require tremendous faith. Darwinism is irrationality and insanity
compounded. Theology without literal six-day creationism becomes alien to the God of Scripture
because it turns from the God Who acts and Whose Word is the creative word and the word of
power, to a belief in process as god. The god of the non-creationists is the creation of man and a
figment of their imagination. They must play games with the Bible to vindicate their position.
Evolution is both naive and irrational. Its adherents violate the scientific canons they profess by
their fanatical and intolerant belief. The entire book of Genesis is basic to Biblical theology. The
church needs to re-study it to recognize its centrality.

Exodus, Volume II of Commentaries on the Pentateuch


By R. J. Rushdoony. Essentially, all of mankind is on some sort of exodus.
However, the path of fallen man is vastly different from that of the righteous. Apart
from Jesus Christ and His atoning work, the exodus of a fallen humanity means
only a further descent from sin into death. But in Christ, the exodus is now a
glorious ascent into the justice and dominion of the everlasting Kingdom of God.
Therefore, if we are to better understand the gracious provisions made for us in the “promised
land” of the New Covenant, a thorough examination into the historic path of Israel as described
in the book of Exodus is essential.

Leviticus, Volume III of Commentaries on the Pentateuch


By R. J. Rushdoony. The book of Leviticus has not been a popular subject of study
in the modern church. Much like the book of Proverbs, any emphasis upon the
practical applications of God’s law is readily shunned in pursuit of more “spiritual”
studies. Books like Leviticus are considered dull, overbearing, and irrelevant. To be
spiritual, in the modern sense of the term, means to live on a “higher” level where
today’s Christian is governed more by the impressions of the heart than a carnal commandment.
But man was created in God’s image and is duty-bound to develop the implications of that image
by obedience to God’s law. In this volume, the author writes, “Man cannot develop his
personhood except in terms of God and His law-word. Even as God separated man from the dust
of the earth to make him a living soul (Gen. 2:7), so God summons covenant man in Leviticus to
separate himself to the Covenant Lord and to become holy even as God Himself is holy. The law
or justice of God is the way of holiness.”
The book of Leviticus contains over ninety references to the word holy. The purpose, therefore,
of this third book of the Pentateuch is to demonstrate the legal foundation of holiness in the
totality of our lives. In the book of Zechariah, the prophet proclaims a day when “there shall be
upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS TO THE LORD” (Zech. 14:20). This same inscription
is borne upon the garments of the high priest, and pictures for us a day in which every area of life
shall be made holy to the Lord. This present study is dedicated to equipping His church for that
redemptive mission.

Numbers, Volume IV of Commentaries on the Pentateuch
By R. J. Rushdoony. The Lord desires a people who will embrace their
responsibilities.
The history of Israel in the wilderness is a sad narrative of a people with hearts
hardened by complaint and rebellion to God’s ordained authorities. They were
slaves, not an army. They would recognize the tyranny of Pharaoh but disregard the
servant-leadership of Moses. God would judge the generation He led out of captivity, while
training a new generation to conquer Canaan.
The book of Numbers reveals God’s dealings with both generations. The rebellious in Israel are
judged incessantly while a census is taken to number the armies of Israel according to their
tribes. This was an assessment of strength and a means to encourage the younger generation to
view themselves as God’s army and not Pharaoh’s slaves.

Deuteronomy, Volume V of Commentaries on the Pentateuch


As the last installment of R.J Rushdoony’s commentary series on the Pentateuch, it
stands as one of the more dynamic expositions in the series in that it addresses
God’s demands upon man, family, church, and state. In short, Deuteronomy is the
defining volume on theocracy, and could easily stand alongside Rushdoony’s
Institutes of Biblical Law in its equally comprehensive application of Biblical law.
If you desire to understand the core of Rushdoony’s thinking, this commentary on Deuteronomy
is one volume you must read. The covenantal structure of this last book of Moses, its detailed
listing of both blessings and curses, and its strong presentation of godly theocracy provided
Rushdoony with a solid foundation from which to summarize the central tenets of a truly Biblical
worldview-one that is solidly established upon Biblical Law, and one that is assured to shape the
future.
This is why the book of Deuteronomy is central to a gospel of victory in time and eternity. The
redemptive power of Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit are the enabling forces for a people to
once again live faithful to God’s covenant-and Deuteronomy provides the details for that

Chariots of Prophetic Fire: Studies in Elijah and Elisha


By R. J. Rushdoony. There is a marked resemblance between our time and that of
Elijah and Elisha. Theirs was a time of judgment; ours is as well. But there is a
deeper resemblance. Their day was an age of syncretism, of radical compromise
between the worship of the Lord and Baal worship. The two had been blended
together to make one religion, so that a refusal to see the necessity for
uncompromising religion marked Israel.
In Chariots of Prophetic Fire, R. J. Rushdoony challenges the Church of our day to resist
compromise and the temptation of expediency, and realize that the power today does not lie in
politics or governments but in God’s men of faith.

The Gospel of John
By R. J. Rushdoony. Jesus is the true bread of life, come down from heaven. His
flesh, His true humanity, is our bread of life; this He gives for the life of the world.
We are in Him no longer the sinful and death-bound sons of fallen Adam, but the
just and life-bound people of the last Adam. Christ gives us His flesh, His glorious
humanity, so that we are remade into people of righteousness and eternal life.
In this commentary the author maps out the glorious gospel of John, starting from the obvious
parallel to Genesis 1 (“In the beginning was the Word”) and through to the glorious conclusion
of Christ’s death and resurrection. Nothing more clearly reveals the gospel than Christ’s atoning
death and His resurrection. They tell us that Jesus Christ has destroyed the power of sin and
death. John therefore deliberately limits the number of miracles he reports in order to point to
and concentrate on our Lord’s death and resurrection. The Jesus of history is He who made
atonement for us, died and was resurrected. His life cannot be understood apart from this, nor
can we know His history in any other light. This is why John’s “testimony is true,” and, while
books filling the earth could not contain all that could be said, the testimony given by John is
“faithful.”

Romans and Galatians


By R. J. Rushdoony. From the author’s introduction: “I do not disagree with the
liberating power of the Reformation interpretation, but I believe that it provides
simply the beginning of our understanding of Romans, not its conclusion ... The
great problem in the church’s interpretation of Scripture has been its ecclesiastical
orientation, as though God speaks only to the church, and commands only the
church. The Lord God speaks in and through His Word to the whole man, to every man, and to
every area of life and thought ... To assume that the Triune Creator of all things is in His word
and person only relevant to the church is to deny His Lordship or sovereignty. If we turn loose
the whole Word of God onto the church and the world, we shall see with joy its power and glory.
This is the purpose of my brief comments on Romans.”

Hebrews, James and Jude
By R. J. Rushdoony. There is a resounding call in Hebrews, which we cannot
forget without going astray: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp,
bearing his reproach” (13:13). This is a summons to serve Christ the Redeemer-
King fully and faithfully, without compromise. In our time, it calls for a break, not
only with the prevailing culture of humanistic statism and its messianic claims and
pretensions, but also a wayward church that has made itself the handmaiden to Christ’s enemies.
When James, in his epistle, says that faith without works is dead, he tells us that faith is not a
mere matter of words, but it is of necessity a matter of life. We are dead men if we no longer can
breathe, and we are spiritually dead if our faith is unaccompanied by works. Too many churches
are like graveyards because too many members have no living faith. “Pure religion and
undefiled” requires Christian charity and action. Anything short of this is a self-delusion.
James’s letter is a corrective the church needs badly.
Jude similarly recalls us to Jesus Christ’s apostolic commission, “Remember ye the words which
have been spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ” (v. 17). Jude’s letter is
usually classified as an apocalyptic tract, but we cannot forget that all the Bible speaks of a
division between fallen and redeemed humanity, between the saved and the lost, of the necessity
for a new creation beginning with us, and of the inescapable triumph of the Kingdom of God.

Sermon on the Mount


By R. J. Rushdoony. So much has been written about the Sermon on the Mount,
but so little of the commentary ventures outside of the matters of the heart. The
Beatitudes are reduced to the assumed meaning of their more popular portions, and
much of that meaning limits our concerns to downplaying wealth, praying in secret,
suppressing our worries, or simply reciting the Lord’s Prayer.
All of these commandments are most important, but the larger meaning is missed when the
sermon is not read and understood from within the context of the New Covenant. As the author
writes, “The covenant made by Jesus Christ is new, because it is with a new people, the new
church or assembly of God’s firstborn (Heb. 12:22-24), but it is the same covenant with Adam,
Noah, Abraham, and Israel; the same tree of life is the life of the covenant, but new branches are
grafted into it, and the dead branches are pruned out (Rom. 11:17-24). The tree of life, Jesus
Christ, is the center and life of the New Jerusalem, God’s Kingdom and city, in every age (Rev.
22:1-2).”

Sermons in Obadiah & Jonah


By R. J. Rushdoony. Obadiah is a prophecy of judgment on Edom – descendants of
Esau who bore a grudge against Judah, the descendants of Jacob. The Edomites
viewed all the wealth and prosperity of Judah as rightfully theirs. This centuries-old
envy caused them to seek every opportunity to do harm to God’s people. St.
Augustine saw in Obadiah an early example of the City of Man opposing the City
of God. R. J. Rushdoony brings the conflict even closer, condemning the “spiritual Edomites” of
our day who believe evildoers have the power to frustrate the progress of the Kingdom of God.
Jonah provides us with dramatic examples of God’s judgment and mercy. When reading Jonah,
we tend to focus on God’s wrath upon Jonah while forgetting that his assigned mission was one
of grace to Nineveh, capital of one of the most brutal empires in history. Despite being delivered
from the fish, Jonah still complained when God showed mercy upon Nineveh. Rushdoony
demonstrates that we play the part of Jonah when we second-guess God, complain about the
work He gives us, or are peevish when outcomes are not to our liking. Rushdoony once wrote to
himself in his own Bible, “JONAH RUSHDOONY, is it your gourd vine or the Lord’s work that
fills your prayers and thoughts? ARISE, Nineveh is around you and its thousands of needy
souls.”
These sermons will both challenge and inspire your faith.

To disregard this book in the education of our children would be a colossal error.
With this Study Guide on the book of Proverbs, you will learn God’s basic truths as they speak
to the classical philosophical divisions of epistemology, metaphysics, and ethics. You will
grapple with the tensions of determinism and human responsibility. You will find an entire
system of priorities for life’s ethics and purposes. You will find the basic constituents of a
biblical social system, as well as principles for sound economics, government, and general
business management. The book includes both a proper theology, anthropology, and human
psychology. Every education program will give you a system of categories by which you
understand life, history, truth, ethics, and reality. Some systems have a semblance of truth, but
they are fundamentally compromised because they do not begin with the book of Proverbs or the
fear of God (Prov. 1:7).

Christianity and the State


By R. J. Rushdoony. By virtue of being King of kings and Lord of lords, Christ’s
reign over man and government is universal and total. “He removeth kings, and
setteth up kings” (Dan. 2:21) and “increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them”
(Job 12:23) because the government is on His shoulders: He is the governor among
the nations (Isa. 9:7, Ps. 22:28). The need today is for the church to press the
crown-rights of Christ the King, confident that His government over all will increase without
end: “the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.”
This powerful volume sets forth a Biblical theology of the state, tracing in detail the history and
consequences of both statist domination and Christian dereliction of duty. By firmly establishing
the Biblical alternative to modern Christianity’s polytheism, the author alerts us to the pitfalls of
the past, and provides Godly counsel for both the present and future. The crystallization of
decades of research, Christianity and the State is a landmark volume of 20th century
Christendom.

Tithing and Dominion
By Edward A. Powell and R. J. Rushdoony. God’s Kingdom covers all things in its
scope, and its immediate ministry includes, according to Scripture, the ministry of
grace (the church), instruction (the Christian and homeschool), help to the needy
(the diaconate), and many other things. God’s appointed means for financing His
Kingdom activities is centrally the tithe. This work affirms that the Biblical
requirement of tithing is a continuing aspect of God’s law-word and cannot be neglected. This
book is “must reading” as Christians work to take dominion in the Lord’s name.

Noble Savages: Exposing the Worldview of Pornographers and Their War


Against Christian Civilization
By R. J. Rushdoony. This $57 billion dollar industry is swallowing peoples
worldwide as its revenues exceed that of professional football, baseball, and
basketball combined. Statistics reveal that upwards of 40 million American adults
regularly visit over 372 million published pornographic web pages. How did we
get here?
In the “free love” decade of the 1960s, the New Left refashioned pornography into a new
image—the symbol of moral freedom. What was once sold “under the counter” as filth was now
celebrated as the literary symbol of liberation from God and His law-word. This refashioning
was nothing new. It was but an echo of the liberation theology of the Marquis de Sade, the 19th
century pervert de France (1740-1814).

In 1974, R. J. Rushdoony, wrote, “[T]his new pornography, first conceived by Sade - will not be
eliminated by moral indignation or by legislation.” Rushdoony recognized that the roots of
pornography in modern culture are essentially religious and must be combated religiously.
In this powerful book Noble Savages (formerly The Politics of Pornography) Rushdoony
demonstrates that in order for modern man to justify his perversion he must reject the Biblical
doctrine of the fall of man. If there is no fall, the Marquis de Sade argued, then all that man does
is normative. Rushdoony concluded, “[T]he world will soon catch up with Sade, unless it
abandons its humanistic foundations.”
In his conclusion Rushdoony wrote, “Symptoms are important and sometimes very serious, but it
is very wrong and dangerous to treat symptoms rather than the underlying disease. Pornography
is a symptom; it is not the problem.” What is the problem? It’s the philosophy behind
pornography—the rejection of the fall of man that makes normative all that man does. Learn it
all in this timeless classic.

In His Service: The Christian Calling to Charity


By R. J. Rushdoony. The Christian faith once meant that a believer responded to a
dark world by word and by deed. However, a modern, self-centered church has
isolated the faith to a pietism that relinquishes charitable responsibility to the state.
The end result has been the empowering of a humanistic world order.
In addition, God’s great and redeeming power is virtually limited to saving souls from eternal
destruction. In Biblical terms, the priority if God’s Kingdom first, and all our acts of mercy and
benevolence must be in terms of that grand mission. We are God’s servants—we dare not expect
God to serve our needs ahead of His Kingdom.
It is now difficult for the church to recover the Biblical meaning of words like charity and
compassion because post-World War II liberalism has redefined them politically into state
welfarism. This redefinition has made charity a political tool to retain social order and made the
state the primary agency of compassion. Charity is no longer personal.
But Biblical compassion flows from our having first received the grace of God and then
manifesting it to others. Therefore, Biblical charity - which is compassion in action - is personal:
it begins with God’s mercy towards us, and then the people of God give expression to that at an
individual level. It is in His service that we understand out calling to charity.

In this book, Rushdoony elucidates the Christian’s calling to charity and its implications for
godly dominion. In an age when Christian action is viewed in political terms, a return to
Christian works of compassion and Godly service will help usher in a return of the reign of God
as no piece of legislation ever could.

A House for God: Building a Kingdom-Driven Family


There is one thing we are to seek. One vision given for us to fulfill. A single
mission that would serve as the goal for something so large as a nation, yet specific
to us as individuals. There is one primary cause by which we are to define all that
we are, all that we have, and all that we do.
What we are to seek above all else is the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt. 6:33)
and to do the will of God on earth as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:10). A vital, governing institution
for this mission is the family - in specific, the trustee family.
It is the Christian family that holds this great Kingdom mission “in trust” and instills this mission
in its members. It is the Christian family that serves as the first church, state, workplace, and
school in which children are prepared for godly dominion.
Therefore, Christian parents are called to establish Kingdom-driven families. They are to build a
home for God - a house that is dedicated to the service of the King and His Kingdom.
To aid in this calling, Christian author and education expert, Andrea Schwartz has carefully put
together this collection of essays entitled A House for God: Building a Kingdom-Driven Family.
Both your personal life and your family life will be challenged and transformed through the
pages of this easy-to-read, insightful book on building a Kingdom-driven family.

Salvation and Godly Rule


By R. J. Rushdoony. Man was called to dominion (Gen. 1:26-28), and to establish
his reign over the world under God. By his fall, man introduced the reign of death
into the world, and as long as he remains in the Fall, sin reigns in him unto death,
both in time and eternity. Christ, however, by His grace and the gift of
righteousness, enables man to reign in this world, and to reign through
righteousness in time and eternity.

Salvation means reigning. As formerly rebellious slaves, we are now established in kingship, and
described as “more than conquerors” (Rom. 8:37) in Christ, because we are also kings.
The full meaning of salvation cannot be understood apart from the fact of reigning. The multiple
use of the word “reign” in Romans makes clear the centrality of reigning in the doctrine of
redemption. To defer this fact to another world is a false separation into two alien realms—one
(the material) surrendered to one god, and the other (spiritual) reserved for the other god. Neither
is Biblical.
St. Paul is emphatic: we “reign in life.” The Biblical doctrine of salvation requires it.

A Conquering Faith: Doctrinal Foundations for Christian Reformation


By William Einwechter. This monograph takes on the doctrinal defection of
today’s church by providing Christians with an introductory treatment of six vital
areas of Christian doctrine: God’s sovereignty, Christ’s Lordship, God’s law, the
authority of Scripture, the dominion mandate, and the victory of Christ and His
church in history. This easy-to-read booklet is a welcome antidote to the
humanistic theology of the 21st century church.

A Word in Season: Daily Messages on the Faith for All of Life (7 Volumes)
By R. J. Rushdoony. These daily messages on the faith for all of life are unlike
any compilation of Christian “devotional” ever published. In these pages, you
won’t find the overly introspective musings of a Christian pietist; what you’ll
discover are the hard-hitting convictions of a man whose sole commitment was
faithfulness to God’s law-word and representing that binding Word to his
readers.
Although Dr. R. J. Rushdoony is most known for his scholarly works on
theology, history, philosophy, economics, education, and statecraft, A Word in
Season reveals the intense, but simple, approach to applying one’s faith to every area of life and
thought. This is all done in a format of bite-sized readings on the uncompromising faith.
The multi-volume series is taken from over 430 articles written by Rushdoony over the span of
25 years (1966-1991) for the California Farmer, an agricultural periodical that provided him a
regular column entitled “The Pastor’s Pulpit.” It has long been a desire of many to see these

An Informed Faith: The Position Papers of R. J. Rushdoony


Our faith should be an informed one because the God who created all things
speaks to every sphere of life, and all facts should be studied in light of the
revelation of God in Scripture. This is the foundation of Christian dominion.
For R. J. Rushdoony, true government was the self-government of the
Christian life in terms of God’s law, so he wrote his position papers to better equip Christians to
apply their faith to all of life. His objective was not to empower the state, or the organized
church, but rather to call every person and institution to God’s Word, which often put him at
odds with both church and state.
This three-volume collection of his position papers (1979-2000) are organized topically and are
featured for the first time with an extensive index which will make this material far more
accessible to the studious reader.
This beautiful three-volume collection of hardback books topically organizes ALL of
Rushdoony’s position papers (not only the 115 originally published in Roots of Reconstruction,
but also 118 later essays, including six recently discovered unpublished papers).

Faith & Action the Collected Articles of R. J. Rushdoony from the
Chalcedon Report, 1965-2004
Faith and Action is the complete collection of the essays of R. J.
Rushdoony written for the Chalcedon Report between 1965 and 2001 along
with several transcripts of his recorded talks. The large volume The Roots
of Reconstruction only contained his Chalcedon Report essays up until
1985, so most of the essays included in Faith & Action were unavailable to readers for many
years until now.
In order to make the author’s knowledge more accessible, this three-volume collection features
some of the most extensive indexing we’ve ever done including a General Index, a History
Index, a Scripture Index, a Works Cited Index, and a Chalcedon Report Directory. A total of 183
pages of indexing! This handsome set of books is a must have for any serious library.
The central theme of this collection of essays is Christian Reconstruction, which to Rushdoony
meant the responsibility of Christian citizenship in the Kingdom of God. For him, his central
drive behind his research and writing was to move men to faith and action.
Rushdoony was primarily an essayist who vigorously and prolifically wrote on a multiplicity of
subjects, issues, and dis-ciplines. Despite his being critical of both the contemporary church for
its compro-mise and the humanistic state for its will to be as God, these essays are replete with
Rushdoony’s undying faith in the victory of God in history.
Rushdoony’s “big idea” was Christian Reconstruction which centered not on a pursuit of
political power but rather an equipping of Christians to take back government by means of self-
government in terms of God’s law.
This three-volume collection will no doubt serve the larger church for many generations as they
seek first the Kingdom of God in their spheres, and in their times.

Faith on Earth?
By Lou Poumakis. “Shall He find faith on the earth?” is a question Christians must
answer for they will decide the matter. Believers today have yet to appreciate the
magnitude of the responsibility God has placed on their shoulders. You may be
surprised and challenged as Lou Poumakis sets forth the eternal significance of
your personal efforts in this brief, thought-provoking volume. This book will
stimulate your thinking about faith on Christ’s terms. The church and the yet to be evangelized
world need this message.

Systematic Theology (in two volumes)
By R. J. Rushdoony. Theology belongs in the pulpit, the school, the workplace,
the family and everywhere. Society as a whole is weakened when theology is
neglected. Without a systematic application of theology, too often people
approach the Bible with a smorgasbord mentality, picking and choosing that
which pleases them. This two-volume set addresses this subject in order to assist
in the application of the Word of God to every area of life and thought.

Infallibility and Interpretation


By R. J. Rushdoony & P. Andrew Sandlin. The authors argue for infallibility from a
distinctly presuppositional perspective. That is, their arguments are unapologetically
circular because they believe all ultimate claims are based on one’s beginning
assumptions. The question of Biblical infallibility rests ultimately in one’s belief
about the character of God. They believe man is a creature of faith, not, following
the enlightenment’s humanism, of reason. They affirm Biblical infallibility because the God
Whom the Bible reveals could speak in no other way than infallibly, and because the Bible in
which God is revealed asserts that God alone speaks infallibly. Men deny infallibility to God not
for intellectual reasons, but for ethical reasons - they are sinners in rebellion against God and His
authority in favor of their own. The authors wrote convinced that only by a recovery of faith in
an infallible Bible and obedience to its every command can Christians hope to turn back evil
both in today’s church and culture.

Predestination in Light of the Cross


By John B. King, Jr. This book is a thorough presentation of the Biblical doctrine
of absolute predestination from both the dogmatic and systematic perspectives. The
author defends predestination from the perspective of Martin Luther, showing he
was as vigorously predestinarian as John Calvin. At the same time, the author
provides a compellingly systematic theological understanding of predestination.
This book will give the reader a fuller understanding of the sovereignty of God.

Paperback, 314 pages, $24.00

Sovereignty
By R. J. Rushdoony. The word sovereignty means one who is above all. It is the
supreme and highest power. The Christian defines the Sovereign Lord as unlimited,
independent, with original authority.
For fallen man, sovereignty belongs to the state because the state is the source of
law. Since the Christian can have no other gods (Ex. 20:3), history is defined appropriately by
Augustine as a conflict between the City of Man and the City of God. As in all conflicts, we
must choose this day whom we will serve.
Calvinists often limit the doctrine of sovereignty to a systematic theological definition of God.
Much more work is needed in developing the implications of sovereignty for the Kingdom of
God and its application in terms of the law-word of God.
In this posthumously published volume, R. J. Rushdoony examines the comprehensive
implications of God’s sovereignty with a clear eye to critiquing the various places where man
posits sovereignty-especially the sovereign state. This is a must-read for anyone seeking to
understand the crises of our times.

The Church Is Israel Now
By Charles D. Provan. For the last century, Christians have been told that God has
an unconditional love for persons racially descended from Abraham. Membership
in Israel is said to be a matter of race, not faith. This book repudiates such a
racialist viewpoint and abounds in Scripture references which show that the
blessings of Israel were transferred to all those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior.

The Great Christian Revolution


By Otto Scott, Mark R. Rushdoony, R. J. Rushdoony, John Lofton, and Martin
Selbrede. A major work on the impact of Reformed thinking on our civilization.
Some of the studies, historical and theological, break new ground and provide
perspectives previously unknown or neglected.
“Is the LORD’s hand waxed short?” Many Christians today believe it has. Whenever the church
sounds a trumpet this uncertain for the King of Kings, civil rulers have drawn the same
conclusion—and acted upon it. This volume documents the critical relationship between faulty
theologies and the nations staked their destiny on the myths so engendered. Like the prodigal
son, modern Christianity is hunger-bitten, consuming mere husks, worshipping the semi-mighty
god of Arminianism. When God’s people return to the Almighty God of Scripture, the trampling
underfoot of Satan will be inevitable.

The Incredible Scofield and His Book


By Joseph M. Canfield. Almost everyone knows about the Scofield Reference
Bible. But no one before this has worked out a detailed account of the life of Cyrus
I. Scofield. And yet there is such an amazing amount of material that should be
known about this man that everyone who is at all interested in the dispensational
system should read this book.
This is a powerful book. The material is well documented. Anyone who gets this book and reads
it will find here some amazing things about a man whose book is well known, but whose life we
believe concerning many of its most features has been purposely concealed lest it be found to
contradict his teachings.
This is one of the most powerful books that has ever been written against the dispensational
system. It is powerful because it shows how the book that has the most to do with promotion of
that system. The Scofield Reference Bible, originated.
Here is a book that dispensationalists as well as others will do well to read. It is powerful, so
powerful we dare say, that if dispensationalists would read it carefully, perhaps half of them
would turn from that system.

Pierre Viret: The Angel of the Reformation
This publication marks the five-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Pierre Viret
with the first full biography in English of this remarkable and oft-overlooked early
Reformer. R. A. Sheats pens the fascinating history and life of this important early
light of the Protestant Reformation who, after nearly five centuries of relative
obscurity, is now enjoying a renewed interest in his history and scholarship. The
republication of the life and works of Pierre Viret truly comes at its proper time, inspiring future
generations to continue the work of advancing Christ’s Kingdom throughout the world.
Pierre Viret
1511-1571
Pierre Viret, the son of a tailor, was born in the town of Orbe, eighteen miles north of Lausanne,
Switzerland. Though raised in obscurity, he grew to become a crucial Reformed leader during
the infancy of the Protestant Reformation in French Switzerland. Viret, together with his closest
associates John Calvin and William Farel, formed the Swiss Triumvirate, the three leading
Reformers in the French-speaking world. Known as the Angel of the Reformation because of his
extraordinary Christian character and temperament, Viret was a model pastor during his ministry
in Lausanne, Geneva, and France. Most of his ministry was served in Lausanne where he
developed the Lausanne Academy. That institution would later relocate and become the Genevan
Academy. After almost thirty years’ ministry in Lausanne and Geneva, Viret spent his last ten
years in fruitful ministry in France as the leader of the French Reformed Church. He theological
output was immense, with over forty books to his credit. In his day he was a leading authority on
political theory, applied Biblical Law, economics, and apologetics.
“This new biography of the great French Swiss Reformer Pierre Viret is a groundbreaking
venture. Not only has R. A. Sheats given us the first full (and exhaustively illustrated!) biography
of Viret in English, but has achieved this feat with impeccable scholarship, making very
generous use of the available sources. She has, in the manner of her great predecessor Merle d’
Aubigne, entered into the very spirit of our Reformer, an achievement which she has rendered in
a most engaging and attractive style.”
-Jean-Marc Bethoud, Historian and Theologian, Lausanne
“R. A. has written a superb biography on our Swiss Reformer that is both warmhearted and
scholarly. We anticipate a soon translation into French.”
-Daniel Bovet, President of l’Association Pierre Viret, Switzerland

The Sovereignty of God
By Arthur W. Pink. First published in 1918, The Sovereignty of God by Arthur
W. Pink is one of the most comprehensive studies on God’s decrees that are
based on scripture alone, Sola Scriptura. Pink begins with a question which
every person needs to answer, and more especially those of the household of
faith: “Who is regulating the affairs on this earth today—God or the Devil?”
Pink continues with great insight and scripture references concerning God’s sovereignty in
Operation, Salvation, and Reprobation. He also addresses Human Responsibility, our attitude
toward His Sovereignty, and reflects on the Difficulties and Objections to this doctrine.
In time past, present, and future when practical preaching replaces doctrinal exposition of
Scripture, an evil malady occurs and mankind reverts back to the lawless, listless, and lustful
condition whereby man determines what is good and evil; a denial of the Divine Rights of the
triune God as expressed in ALL of scripture, starting with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God . .
.” This evil malady ceases when the Creator and Sustainer of Life is exalted to and revered as the
King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Man being relegated to his rightful place, in the dust.
The doctrine of the sovereignty of God restores the Divine Rights of the Creator and revitalizes
the Christian, which motivates him to serve and take dominion in every area of thought and life;
the realization that “. . . If God be for us, who can be against us?” We are living in a time in
which these words need to be our battle cry! As you go forward remember, “For by Him were all
things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be
thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him:
and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist” (Col. 1:16–17).
God’s Sovereignty is the very basis of Christian thinking, a presupposition in which every area
of thought and life begin and end with God. A value desperately needed today: giving God the
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit their glory due.

Toward a Christian Marriage


Edited by Elizabeth Fellerson. The law of God makes clear how important and how
central marriage is. God the Son came into the world neither through church nor
state but through a family. This tells us that marriage, although nonexistent in
heaven, is, all the same, central to this world. We are to live here under God as
physical creatures whose lives are given their great training-ground in terms of the
Kingdom of God by marriage. Our Lord stresses the fact that marriage is our normal calling.
This book consists of essays on the importance of a proper Christian perspective on marriage.

Back Again Mr. Begbie: The Life Story of Rev. Lt. Col. R.J.G. Begbie OBE
The life of Rev. Lt Col R.J.G. Begbie OBE, is an important chronicle of the
twentieth century, a key era in history. In Dick Begbie, we have a distinguished
military officer, a successful business man, and then a Christian pastor and church
builder who founded new congregations in South Africa. We see old
Christendom’s son as a leader in the Christian revival of the West.
His personal history is an example of what the Holy Spirit has begun to do. The next generation
will see much more. In itself, this is a very good personal history. But it is also part of a greater
story now in its infancy, the story of the renewal of the Western world. The pre-Darwinian West
began the evangelization of the world, and that mission is now being continued by others
Old Christendom is indeed in process of collapse, but it is also taking steps to Christianize the
whole world and to make a new Christendom. This is a fragment of that story.

Teach Me While My Heart Is Tender: Read Aloud Stories of Repentance and
Forgiveness
By Andrea Schwartz. Many people consider young children unable to handle
difficult Biblical doctrines. Our Savior had so much confidence that children were
able to receive his teachings that He presented children as examples that adults
should follow as they entered the Kingdom. Not only are tenderhearted children
ready to receive the Word, they have a receptivity to it that should not be ignored by their parents
and teachers.
Andrea Schwartz has compiled three stories drawn from her family-life experiences to help
parents teach children how the faith applies to every area of life. They confront the ugly reality
of sin, the beauty of godly repentance, and the necessity of forgiveness. The stories are meant to
be read by parents and children together. The interactions and discussions that will follow serve
to draw families closer together.
This little volume is a much needed antidote to the pietistic, sentimental attitudes of our day.

Family Matters: Read Aloud Stories of Responsibility and Self-Discipline


Read Aloud Stories for parents and children to read together. Engaging stories
communicate Biblical Truth. A great addition to your home library.
Unless children are trained in self-control and self-discipline early in their lives,
they move into their adult years without a sense of personal, familial, or societal
responsibility. They are unable to make mature individual decisions and they are unable to
effectively disseminate the gospel message in obedience to the Great Commission.
Andrea Schwartz, author of Teach Me While My Heart Is Tender, has again drawn from her
family-life experiences to every area of life. These five stories focus on the necessity of
responsibility and self-discipline in the “small things” working from the premise that, “Whoever
can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much” (Luke 16:10).
The stories are meant to be read by parents and children together and serve as useful
conversation starters to educate boys and girls so they can be effective citizens in the Kingdom
of God.

The Biblical Trustee Family: Understanding God’s Purpose for Your
Household
By Andrea Schwartz. God’s basic institution is the family, and the Biblical family
lives and operates in terms of a calling greater than itself - the Kingdom of God. In
an age when the family is disparaged, warred against, and treated as a mere
convention, it becomes the duty of Christians to bring God’s plan for the family to
listening ears. That’s what Andrea Schwartz has accomplished in this collection of essays on The
Biblical Trustee Family.
Stemming from her long years in homeschooling. Andrea elevates the Kingdom mandate as the
driving purpose behind God’s creation of the family, and the family’s central task: education.
Her passion is to equip Christian families - especially homeschooling mothers - not only with the
tools of learning, but the tools of dominion.

Empowered: Developing Strong Women for Kingdom Service


By Andrea Schwartz. Strong women are integral to building a godly culture.
However, many Christian circles are riddled with unsound doctrines, humanistic
stereotypes, and hidden abuses that cripple the influence of women in their homes,
churches, and communities. In these essays, Andrea Schwartz explores how
Christ’s absolute authority, the protection of the trustee family, the justice of God’s
law in abuse cases, and the careful study of Scripture liberates and empowers the Christian
woman to take her vital place in the cause of Christ’s Great Commission.

The Luxury of Words: Poems by R. J. Rushdoony


Rousas John Rushdoony is primarily known as a theologian, scholar, and author.
However, Dr. Rushdoony (Rush to his friends) also wrote the occasional poem -
often personal and transparent. Although these were not written for publication,
the have been put into book form as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the
Chalcedon Foundation, the ministry he founded in 1965.
This collection reveals much more about the man who dedicated his life to the premise that God
speaks to all areas of life and thought. These 112 poems span over six decades, dating as far back
at the mid-1930s and culminating in the years before his death. This poetry reveals Rush’s

Faith & Wellness: Resisting the State Control of Healthcare by Restoring the
Priestly Calling of Doctors
By R.J. Rushdoony. Abortion, Euthanasia. Socialized Healthcare.
Statist regulations. Quackery. Addiction. These are the modern symptoms of a
disease that has infected Western medicine for thousands of years: the disease of
humanism. In a series of thirteen “Medical Reports,” R. J. Rushdoony traced the Christian and
pagan roots of Western medicine in history, and demonstrated how humanist thought has
produced vicious fruit in both modern medical practices and in the expectations of patients.
How do we heal the medical profession? Rushdoony understood that finger-pointing will not
solve our problems. Because the plague of humanism will inevitably lead to death and no
wellness, it is the responsibility of the Church - and the Christian medical professionals with
her—to develop a thoroughly Biblical theology of medicine and to teach it.
Rushdoony lays foundations for this by explaining the connection between salvation and healing,
establishing the vital importance of treating the whole man (body and spirit), and renewing the
vision for doctors to embrace their priestly callings. This is an essential read for anyone who
wants to reform health care.
This paperback books includes all the Medical Reports once part of the Roots of Reconstruction.

Wait Till It’s Free


By Colin Gunn. “Wait Till It’s Free” is an entertaining and provocative look at the
current healthcare crisis. This film takes a hard and honest look at the way we do
healthcare in America by looking at every relevant aspect of modern medicine,
from the escalating cost of health insurance to the move towards universal
government healthcare. The film asks what kind of alternatives there are for families caught
between expensive insurance-based coverage and the “Free” government solutions. The film
explores the alternatives for individuals, churches, and families, and offers moving and
enlightening stories about those that have chosen to follow innovative and independent
approaches to healthcare.
We journeyed to Washington, D.C. and across the Atlantic to Glasgow, Paris, and Brussels to
bring you extraordinary information you won’t find anywhere else. Along the way, we met
authorities like Dr. Ron Paul (former U.S. Congressman), and John Mackey (CEO of Whole

Foods), as well as British experts Theodore Dalrymple (journalist and retired physician) and
MEP Daniel Hannan (a British representative to the European Union). We engage a host of other
experts from both sides of the gurney, meeting patients suffering the burdens of socialized
medicine and doctors isolated from their patients by crippling regulation.
This film goes miles beneath the surface of ObamaCare to expose the 100-year progression of
socialized medicine in America. Traveling to my home country of Scotland, I ferret out the eerie
truth about waiting lines, death panels, and total disregard for human life in Great Britain’s
socialized healthcare system.

Christianity and Capitalism


By R.J. Rushdoony. "To 'love thy neighbor as thyself' is thus the basis of true civil
liberty in the Western world. It requires us to respect in all men and in ourselves
the rights of life, home, property, and reputation, in word, thought, and deed."
In a simple, straightforward style, the Christian case for capitalism is presented.
Capital, in the form of individual and family property, is protected in Scripture and is necessary
for liberty.

Thy Kingdom Come: Studies in Daniel and Revelation


By R. J. Rushdoony. First published in 1970, this book helped spur the modern rise
of postmillennialism. Revelation’s details are often perplexing, even baffling, and
yet its main meaning is clear: it is a book about victory. It tells us that our faith can
only result in victory. “This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith”
(1 John 5:4). This is why knowing Revelation is so important. It assures us of our
victory and celebrates it. Genesis 3 tells us of the fall of man into sin and death. Revelation gives
us man’s victory in Christ over sin and death. The vast and total victory, in time and eternity, set

forth by John in Revelation is too important to bypass. This victory is celebrated in Daniel and
elsewhere in the Bible. We are not given a Messiah who is a loser. These eschatological texts
make clear that the essential good news of the entire Bible is victory, total victory.

Thine is the Kingdom: A Study of the Postmillennial Hope


Israel’s misunderstanding of eschatology eventually destroyed her by leading her to
reject the Messiah and the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven. Likewise, false
eschatological speculation is destroying the church today, by leading her to neglect
her Christian calling and to set forth false expectations. In this volume, edited by
Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., the reader is presented with a blend of Biblical exegesis of
key Scripture passages, theological reflection on important doctrinal issues, and practical
application for faithful Christian living.
Thine is the Kingdom lays the scriptural foundation for a Biblically-based, hope-filled
postmillennial eschatology, while showing what it means to be postmillennial in the real world.
The book is both an introduction to and defense of the eschatology of victory. Chapters include
contemporary writers Keith A. Mathison, William O. Einwechter, and Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., as
well as chapters by giants of the faith Benjamin B. Warfield and J.A. Alexander. This work
should prove immensely helpful for understanding and defending the postmillennial hope. It
should also enliven our prayer to God as we faithfully pray: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
done on earth as it is in heaven... For [T]hine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
forever. Amen.”

God’s Plan for Victory


By R. J. Rushdoony. An entire generation of victory-minded Christians, spurred by
the victorious postmillennial vision of Chalcedon, has emerged to press what the
Puritan Fathers called “the Crown Rights of Christ the King” in all areas of modern
life. Central to that optimistic generation is Rousas John Rushdoony’s jewel of a
study, God’s Plan for Victory (originally published in 1977). The founder of the
Christian Reconstruction movement set forth in potent, cogent terms the older Puritan vision of
the irrepressible advancement of Christ’s kingdom by his faithful saints employing the entire
law-word of God as the program for earthly victory.

The First Prester, Lord Orth, continues his missionary work among the Heathen:

gold amassed for the Thunder King by crime and violence.
In Ryons’ absence, his enemies work to abolish his kingdom and restore the defeated Oligarchy.
They now control a vast treasure in gold, to be used against the king, and no scruple hinders

brought to life again? The usurper who has seized the city from King Ryons now
seeks that power for himself. The past calls to him, and he hears its voice.
Far away, beyond the mountains in the east, Lord Orth, the exiled First Prester, prepares to bring
God's Word to the nations of the Heathen; but he is also needed, more than ever, in Obann. His
heart is set on his mission, but Jack and Ellayne must persuade him to come home.
But once in Obann, the usurpers will surely try to kill him...
