Backward Christian Soldiers: An Action Manual for Christian Reconstruction
Satan may be alive on planet earth, but he's not
well. He's in the biggest trouble he's been in since Calvary.
This book argues that if Christians adopt a vision of victory
and a program of Christian Reconstruction, we will
see the beginning of a new era on earth; the kingdom of God manifested
in every area of life. When Christ returns, Christians will be
occupying, not hiding in the shadows, not sitting in the back
of humanism's bus. By providing clear, workable strategies for
victory, this enjoyable and exciting book shows how to begin recapturing
the world for King Jesus.
Only the Church extends into eternity (Rev. 21:22).
The family does not (Matt. 22:30). This is why Christianity teaches
that the Church is the central institution in history, not the
family. Jesus said, "I will build my church" (Matt.
16:18), not "I will build my family." Historically,
it has been the family, not the State, that has most often served
as covenant-breaking man's alternative idol to the Church. Jesus'
warning in this regard (Matt. 10:35) should be taken seriously.
This short book shows that conservatism's modern cult of the family
puts too much pressure on the family, increasing the likelihood
of a loss of faith and social breakdown. The Christian family
needs the support of the Church if it is to withstand the power
and temptation of the State. Any successful attempt to substitute
the family's authority for the Church's authority will back re
against the family.
Christian Reconstruction: What It Is, What It Isn't
(with Gary DeMar)
Here in 200-pages is the handy-dandy exposition of
Christian Reconstruction that you've been waiting for. Without
exception, every published criticism of Christian Reconstruction
and theonomy has grossly distorted or even lied outright about
what Christian Reconstructionists believe. This is even true of
some of the chapters in Westminster Theological Seminary's book,
Theonomy: A Reformed Critique. North and DeMar write to
set the record straight. North's half of the book is entitled
"God's Covenantal Kingdom," and sets forth the foundational
ideas of Christian Reconstruction. DeMar's part is entitled "Questions
Frequently Asked About Christian Reconstruction."
The Coase Theorem
Modern economics is blind to questions of epistemology.
In their attempts to portray economics as a neutral, value-free
science, modern economists offer solutions to social problems
that have no relation at all to reality. In The Coase Theorem,
Gary North explodes the myth of value-free economics and suggests
that modern economics is in a state of crisis. This crisis is
epitomized by Nobel-prize winner R.H. Coase's theorem on the problem
of social cost.
Crossed Fingers: How the Liberals Captured the Presbyterian Church (available in the Fall of 1995)
This book is the first to detail the step-by-step
program of infiltration used by modernists to take over the Northern
Presbyterian Church. Other books have chronicled the results of
this program, but none has shown how it was done. The infiltration
process began as early as 1870, and it culminated in the expulsion
of the conservatives in 1936. This book shows that the modernists
held a systematic theology that was a perverse mirror image of
the Presbyterianism of the Westminster Confession. It presents
the compromised midway theology of the majority wing of the Church:
New School Presbyterians and fundamentalists (after 1910). It
also shows why the conservatives were unwilling to defend the
Westminster Confession through court actions against heretics
except in the 1890's, and even then, they refused to deal with
many of the fundamental theological issues. The conservatives,
from Charles Hodge to J. Gresham Machen, were themselves unwilling
to accept all of the Confession, especially in the key area of
creationism. Because they crossed their fingers when they swore
allegiance to the Confession, the modernists also crossed theirs,
and all but six of them got away with it. The conservatives were
outfoxed time after time. Princeton Seminary consented from 1880
to 1888 to a brilliant tactical move by the number-one modernist,
which destroyed their ability to oppose biblical higher criticism
as heretical. Then, after 1907, the conservatives consented to
a series of tactical moves that passed institutional power to
the modernists and their pietistic allies. They did not understand
what they had done until two decades after they had done it. By
then, it was too late. This book also lists a series of red-alert
signals that point to a replay of the liberals' strategy.
Dominion and Common Grace
If the millennium is followed by a great rebellion
(Rev. 20:9-10), how can these rebels have been Christians? If
they are not Christians, how can the millennium itself be Christian?
What is the relationship in history between saving grace and common
grace? North deals especially with the hard question of the weakness
of the Church in history, and the power of the God-haters in history.
How is it that those who hate Christ seem to prosper, while Christians
seem to be powerless?
The Dominion Covenant: Genesis
Modern economic thought is humanistic to the core.
All schools of thought begin with the presuppositions that man
(not God) is the measure of all things and man's mind is capable,
apart from biblical revelation, of interpreting the world correctly.
This is why modern economic theory is in the process of disintegration.
North says that economics must begin with the doctrine of creation.
He lays out what the Bible requires of men in the area of finance
and business, as God established these at the foundation of the
world. The Dominion Covenant: Genesis is the first of a
unique multi-volume economic commentary on the Bible, offering
a welcome, thoroughly scriptural antidote to current ideas about
money and how to manage it. This 1982 edition was revised in 1987.
Healer of the Nations
North begins with one basic presupposition: that
the Bible is always the supreme law of the land, and this God-established
fact should be publicly affirmed, nation by nation, in history.
Even when it conflicts with the U.S. Constitution, the Bible is
always authoritative and preeminent. North goes on to prove that
there has been a working alliance - philosophically, politically,
historically, culturally - between many Christians and all humanists.
This book is a direct challenge to this long term alliance in
the field of international relations.
The Hoax of Higher Criticism
The two most successful attacks on Christianity in
the modern world have been biblical higher criticism and Darwinism.
The men who pioneered the "high criticism" of the Bible
did not believe that Jesus was who He said He was: the promised
Messiah, the incarnate Son of God. To transmit their unbelief
to their intellectual peers, and from them to the general public,
the higher critics did their best to remove people's faith in
Moses. If they could prove that the Old Testament is unreliable,
they could by implication demonstrate that Jesus was misinformed
about Moses, and therefore that He was equally unreliable. Higher
criticism is cultic, utterly groundless speculation. This is a
short, clear introduction to the topic. $3.95/72 pp.,
The world is suffering from unstable money. The currencies
of the world are controlled by governments and central banks.
They have been declining in purchasing power since 1914. This
book presents the biblical case for freedom in money. It shows
how modern banking is inherently inflationary because it rests
on false promises. The answer is economic freedom and laws against
Inherit the Earth
This book demonstrates that God has established economic
principles, and that men gain authority over the economy only
by obeying them. Because men have adopted a different set of economic
principles, we can expect judgment. We therefore need revival,
including the restoration of God's economic principles.
Is the World Running Down?
Contrary to the modern secular myth of entropy -
the idea that the world is irretrievably running down - North
maintains that the overcoming of entropy has its part to play
in God's plan for the ages. Think of Moses and the burning bush;
the manna that fed the Israelites for almost 40 years; the daily
refilling of the oil pot of the widow who fed Elijah for over
three years; Christ's feeding of thousands with a few fish and
bread. Most notably, however, the overcoming of entropy applies
to every account of resurrection from the dead, especially the
resurrection of Jesus Christ. Because modern Scientific Creationism
has rested its case on the idea of entropy, it has undermined
Christian social theory which rests on the doctrine of Christ's
ascension in history, not entropy.
Judeo-Christian Tradition: A Guide for the Perplexed
A study of the theology of Judaism that shows why
some Jews have denied that there has ever been a Judeo-Christian
tradition. They argue that this idea came out of American Protestant
liberalism, not out of the facts of European history. This book
takes seriously this claim. It reveals the permanent dividing
lines between orthodox Christianity and Orthodox Judaism regarding
the proper interpretation of the Old Testament.
Leviticus: An Economic Commentary
This is a 750-page Reader's Digest-like condensed
version of Boundaries and Dominion: The Economics of Leviticus,
which is twice as long and which is available only on computer
disk to those who have bought the printed commentary. This commentary
includes detailed analyses of the passages in Leviticus dealing
with economics, including the often misinterpreted 25th chapter
on the jubilee laws. It presents a biblical hermeneutic (principle
of interpretation) that enables students of the Bible to separate
those Mosaic laws that are still in force from those that are
not. It shows why the Mosaic law's seed laws, which included the
clothing laws, the food laws, and the land laws were fulfilled
in the person of Jesus Christ and are no longer valid. This applies
also to the permanent slave law (Lev. 25:44-46).
Liberating Planet Earth
This is North's most evangelistic book. It is a very cogent analysis of baptized socialism as well as a strong defense of the Gospel of Grace. North draws a comparison between orthodox Christianity and Liberation Theology. This is perfect for the skeptical agnostic, the Christian influenced by existentialism, or the new Christian as well.
A Study Guide to Gary North's Liberating Planet Earth
ICE has published this study guide in order to both
simplify the ideas for those unfamiliar with them and help those
familiar acquire a deeper under-standing of them. This guide is
an excellent tool for Sunday school classes, home-schoolers, Christian
schools, personal and group Bible studies, and correspondence
Lone Gunners for Jesus
A biblical response to anti-abortionists who claim
that the individual has the God given right to kill abortionists
in God's name or in the name of natural law ("common sense").
These letters to convicted murderer Paul J. Hill were written
before he was convicted. They respond to his printed defense of
the use of violence against abortionists as well as to his personal
letters to the author.
Marx's Religion of Revolution: Regeneration Through Chaos
This study examines the major facts of Marx and early Marxism: biography, religion, philosophy, and economics. first published in 1968, it has been updated with a lengthy Preface and a concluding chapter, plus an astounding appendix. "The Myth of Marx's Poverty," which proves that in the years when he wrote Das Kapital, Karl Marx was a rich man. It was not poverty that brought Marx to Marxism; it was his all consuming hatred. North shows that it was hatred of humanity that led Marx to revive the ancient pagan belief in social regeneration through systematic chaos, and then to provide it with new clothes and respectability through pseudo-economics. North's study has been regarded for years as the most penetrating Christian analysis of Marx ever written, and this new edition is even more devastating than the first.
Millennialism and Social Theory
Social theory is the view that men adopt to explain
how society operates, how it holds together. Every social theory
incorporates theories of sovereignty, of order and authority,
of law, of rewards and punishments, and of cultural change and
progress over time. The Bible offers a unique version of such
a theory. Unfortunately, modern "pessimillennial" Christians
have rejected the biblical view of law and history, and thus have
not produced an explicitly biblical social theory. Since God is
Three and One, and thus is a Society as well as Individuals, God
is very interested in social theory. North shows the way back
to a biblical understanding of society based on a biblical under-standing
Moses and Pharaoh: Dominion Religion Versus Power Religion
What Bible commentators have failed to understand is that the conflict between Moses and Pharaoh was at heart a conflict between the two major religions in man's history, dominion religion and power religion, with the third major religion - escapist religion - represented by the Hebrew slaves. What they have also failed to point out is there is an implicit alliance between the power religion and the escapist religion. The alliance still exists.
This book is a detailed study of the conflict between
Moses and Pharaoh. It discusses the implications of this conflict
in several areas: theology, politics, sociology, and especially
economics. This book is Part One of the Exodus installment in
North's multi-volume set, An Economic Commentary on the Bible.
The first volume is The Dominion Covenant: Genesis.
The Pirate Economy
Seventeen updated essays from "Remnant Review"
dealing with the presuppositions and premises of our modern economy.
These essays are helpful not only to the investor, but also to
anyone interested in understanding the national and world economies
Political Polytheism: The Myth of Pluralism
No political order can be religiously neutral, and
the modern political order in the United States and other Western
nations, called "pluralism," is in reality polytheism.
As in the ancient world, polytheists are offended at those who
claim that there is only one God, and this is why orthodox Christianity
is increasingly under assault in the United States and throughout
the Western world. In this book, Gary North brings his many years
of theological and historical research to bear on the question
of how this polytheistic state of affairs came about, and what
must be done about it. In a powerful argument, sure to be controversial,
North points a finger at the framers of the Constitution of the
United States, who self-consciously broke with 1000 + years of
Western heritage by not referring to the Trinity and to Christ
as King. This was the hole in the dike, North contends, through
which modern secularism has poured. No one concerned about the
state of the American nation can afford to ignore this book.
Puritan Economic Experiments
This is the story of nearly half a century of Puritan
experiments with government controls, all in the name of Christian
ethics, and why those experiments were finally abandoned as a
failure. The Puritans learned from experience. This book contains
three studies, extracted from North's Ph.D. dissertation, on the
Puritan experiments with common ownership of property, price controls,
and sumptuary legislation.
The dispensationalism taught by C.I. Scofield and
Lewis Sperry Chafer is no longer defended by younger dispensational
theologians. Only a handful of theologians, most of them in their
80's, still proclaim the old faith, with its radical separation
of the Kingdom of God (Church era) and the kingdom of heaven
(Jewish dispensation) and the doctrine that leaven in the
Bible always means evil. This book shows why the older dispensationalism,
with its bias against Christian social action, could not meet
either the theological test of truth or the cultural test of relevance.
The old dispensationalism still is heard in many pulpits, but
there are no seminaries that still teach the old faith undiluted.
This book shows why.
Salvation Through Inflation : The Economics of Social Credit
A familiar anti-capitalism argument today is that
the free market economy is flawed because the commercial banking
system does not create sufficient money to enable consumers to
buy the economy's total output. It is an old idea stretching back
to John Law early in the 18th century and the French Revolution
at the end. This idea undergirds modern Keynesianism, but it also
undergirds the teachings of the right wing "funny money"
movement, from Gertrude Coogan to the Social Credit movement.
The founder of Social Credit, C.H. Douglas, presented this idea
as early as 1917. Keynes actually referred somewhat favorably
to Douglas's basic idea in the General Theory. The Social
Credit movement still exists in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand,
and its ideas are still used to defend the creation of a State
controlled at money system totally divorced from gold or silver.
These ideas are quite widely accepted in the fringe movements
of the far right, including the Christian right. This book refutes
this "shortage of money" idea, especially the supposedly
Christian versions of it.
75 Bible Questions Your Instructors Pray You Won't Ask
Unless you're "one in ten thousand" as
Christians go, you've been misled. Maybe it hasn't been deliberate
on the part of your Bible teachers, but it's true. In Christian
college classrooms, pulpits, and Sunday Schools throughout the
land, people are being misinformed about Christianity, year after
year. By posing 75 key questions (along with the Bible's answers),
Gary North rips the mask from much of contemporary Christendom
to reveal its true face: a baptized humanism. This book
is ideal for group study.
The Sinai Strategy: Economics and the Ten Commandments
This is Part Two of Gary North's commentary on Exodus.
It is a discussion of the Ten Commandments from the point of view
of economic theory. Gary's discussion of the sabbath in this book
supersedes everything he has written in the past, and nobody who
wants to deal with the sabbath issue can afford to ignore the
questions he raises in this book. So far, there has been no detailed
response from strict sabbatarians, although the book was published
Theonomy: An Informed Response
In Theonomy: A Reformed Critique, the faculty
of Westminster Theological Seminary (1990) responded in print
to theonomists. The essays in Westminster's book largely consist
of misunderstandings and muddled theology. In Theonomy: An
Informed Response Gary North, Greg Bahnsen, Gary DeMar, Ken
Gentry and others answer the criticisms in the Westminster volume.
The theonomists demonstrate convincingly that God's law is still
Tithing and The Church
Men owe God ten percent of any net increase of their
income. But which institution lawfully collects the tithe in God's
name? The answer today is what it was when Abraham paid his tithe
to Melchizedek the priest (Gen. 14:20): the institutional Church.
Melchizedek served Abraham bread and wine (v. 18) and blessed
Abraham in God's name (v. 19). The Church has a lawful monopoly
claim on the tithe because it has a lawful monopoly jurisdiction
over the administration of the sacraments. Today, there are parachurch
minis-tries that falsely claim a portion of the tithe. This book
presents a theology of the tithe in terms of a theology of the
institutional Church. It refutes the arguments that tithing and
dominion go together apart from tithing to the institutional Church.
Tools of Dominion: The Case Laws of Exodus
This is North's long awaited economic commentary
on Exodus 21-40, with especial attention to the social laws of
Exodus 21-23. The following topics receive extended treatment
in this massive book: slavery, marital contracts, criminal justice
and victim's rights, restitution, pollution, negligence and responsibility,
the limits of citizenship, the sabbath, bribery and justice, usury
and legitimate interest, common grace, the legal Code of Maimonides,
and the secularizing agenda of the framers of the U.S. Constitution.
This is North's most important work of social and economic thought
to date. It is Part Three of the Exodus commentary series.
Trespassing for Dear Life: What Is Operation Rescue Up To?
Should believers willingly suffer jail and imprisonment
for their Christian convictions? Does the Bible permit Christians
to trespass peacefully onto the property of abortionists in order
to prevent the slaughter of the unborn? In this concise book,
Gary North cuts to the heart of these questions of civil obedience
and disobedience by examining them in the light of the Scriptures.
He shows just where, when, how, why, and by whom those questions
can be settled. He outlines what the biblical limits are, and
brings into focus what the biblical imperatives are. (A more extensive
treatment of these issues is found in North's When Justice
Unconditional Surrender: God's Program for Victory
This is the best introduction to the theology of the Christian Reconstruction movement. Written for a popular audience, it begins with the biblical doctrines of God, man, and law, then works out the implications of these principles as they apply to family, church, state and economy. The concluding section deals with eschatology, focusing on the biblical teaching concerning the Kingdom of God, and outlining the Christian strategy for dominion. This book can be used as a study guide in the basics of Christianity, as well as in the application of Christianity to every area of life.
Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism
This is Gary North's update of his long out-of-print
None Dare Call It Witchcraft. He has researched this field
for 30 years. Unholy Spirits is much larger and fuller
than his earlier study. The book shows that the theory of autonomous
man that undergirds humanism has always been accompanied by a
rise in occultism. The two appear to be rivals, but culturally,
they are twins.
Victim's Rights: The Biblical View of Civil Justice
The 17 chapters of this 300-page book are an extract
and expansion of material found in North's colossal Tools of
Dominion. Here North sets out the biblical view of crime and
punishment, arguing that in all cases biblical law works to restore
the victim while punishing the criminal - the reverse of modern
judicial practice, which leaves the victim in his suffering and
seeks to rehabilitate the criminal. North takes up case by case
the teachings on crime and punishment handed down by God to Moses
on Mount Sinai, discusses what these meant in that society, and
suggests implications for today.
Was Calvin a Theonomist?
This pamphlet reprints North's preface to John Calvin,
The Covenant Enforced (see listing under John Calvin, below).
North argues from Calvin's writings that Calvin believed that
the Mosaic law should form the foundation for Christian socio-political
reflection. Calvin further held that the curses and blessings
of the covenant, enunciated by God in Leviticus 26 and reiterated
by Moses in Deuteronomy 28, are still in force today.
Wealth and Poverty: Four Christian Views of Economics
(Edited by Robert G. Clouse, Essays by William E. Diehl, Art Gish, John Gladwin, and Gary North)
What economic system best expresses the biblical
standards of justice? Do civil governments have a responsibility
to care for the poor? What should individuals, churches and private
organizations do? Gary North defends the biblical principles of
the free market with three "Christian socialists" of
various persuasions. The central point at issue is this: does
the Bible provide us with a "blueprint" for social ethics?
Dr. North says Yes; each of his opponents says No. This book clearly
shows the practical differences between Christian economics and
the major anti-Christian counterfeits of our time.
Westminster's Confession: The Abandonment of Van Til's Legacy
In October, 1990, the long-promised book by the faculty
of Westminster Theological Seminary finally appeared: Theonomy:
A Reformed Critique. This book is North's two-pronged response.
First, he takes up the major essays and themes of the Westminster
faculty's critique/interaction with theonomy, and provides clarifications
and rejoinders. Second, he argues that Westminster has abandoned
the apologetic theory of Cornelius Van Til, which maintains that
between the believer and the unbeliever all ground is common ground,
but no ground is neutral ground. No neutral ground means that
every square inch of life is claimed by Christ, including law,
civil government and social ethics. No neutral ground means that
the Bible must be the ultimate authority in every sphere of life.
The Westminster faculty has abandoned Van Til, substituting various
versions of "neutral" natural law theory. The faculty
has not openly faced up to the question: "If not Van Til's
When Justice Is Aborted: Biblical Standards for Non-Violent Resistance
This book is an extensive discussion of non-violent
resistance to tyranny from a biblical perspective. North takes
up the question of what the Bible teaches on the subject, shows
how Christians have responded historically, and addresses the
question of Operation Rescue and other similar movements today.
As the battle between secular humanism and Christianity escalates,
these questions will become more and more important. As an experienced
social critic and philosopher, North provides a sane alternative
to the extremes of hyperactivism and sheer passivity.
By This Standard: The Authority of God's Law Today
This book presents a simple-to-read introduction to the question of the continuing relevance of biblical law. It shows why a denial of biblical law is antinomian.
Homosexuality: A Biblical View
Bahnsen confronts the emotionally charged issue of
homosexuality and the fundamental issues related to it - individual
rights and biblical authority. In the face of social pressures
to allow homosexual practice without legal restraint, Bahnsen
clarifies personal freedom under both the law and scriptural directives.
The author's case is solidly evangelical amid divergent attitudes
toward within the Christian church. But churches are encouraged
nonetheless to accept and support homosexuals who repent and confess
Christ as Savior.
(see under Ken Gentry)
No Other Standard: Theonomy and Its Critics
This is Greg Bahnsen's response to criticisms of
the theonomic position that have been published or circulated
over the last ten years. Bahnsen deals not only with Westminster
Theological Seminary's Theonomy: A Reformed Critique, but
also with two other brief critical books against him, and with
various published articles and typewritten, photocopied responses.
One by one, Bahnsen takes his critics' arguments apart, showing
that they have either misrepresented his position or misrepresented
the Bible. Line by line, point by point, he shows that they have
not understood his arguments and have also not understood the
vulnerability of their own logical and theological positions.
Theonomy in Christian Ethics
This book, published first in 1977, is an extension
of Bahnsen's Th.M. thesis for Westminster Seminary. It is an apologetic
for biblical law in New Testament times. Written to persuade theologians,
it has persuaded laymen, but very few theologians. It provides
the theological case that undergirds Rushdoony's Institutes
of Biblical Law. No theologian has published a detailed refutation
of this book.
The Covenant Enforced: John Calvin's Sermons on
Deuteronomy 27 and 28 (Edited by James B. Jordan)
As the Reformation began to consolidate in Geneva,
John Calvin preached 200 sermons on the book of Deuteronomy in
order to show the people the kind of Christian republic God wanted
them to have. Calvin's sermons were published in English in the
1580's, and went through three editions. They have been highly
influential in the development of English and American Christian
culture. This book contains 15 sermons, those on Deuteronomy 27
and 28, which discuss the blessings and curses of the covenant.
Rendered into modern English, these sermons are not only valuable
in showing the thought of one of the most profound shapers of
the modern world, but they are also powerful reading, and will
be of tremendous value to pastors, seminarians, and teachers.
The Enterprising Americans
A lively account of the growth of American business
from its beginnings in New England to the great industrial complexes
of today. Chamberlain writes in a popular and brisk anecdotal
style, yet with scholarly insight. The thirteen chapters of his
book concentrate on the creative moments of men of decision. Virtual
unknowns like Sir William Pepperrell take their place beside the
more famous Eli Whitney, Carnegie, Ford, and J.P. Morgan. First
published in 1961, this book has educated thousands of Americans
in the practical benefits of a free market economy by telling
the stories of how those benefits came into being. Perfect for
home school courses in U.S. history.
The Days of Vengeance: An Exposition of the Book of Revelation
This is quite possibly the most comprehensive verse
by verse treatment of the Book of Revelation ever written. David
Chilton has tackled what Calvin and Luther never even attempted.
Following in the train of thought of his Paradise Restored,
Chilton sees the Church triumphant to the end with Satan defeated
at the return of Christ. The Apostle John presents a vision of
victorious Christians who overcome all opposition through the
work of Jesus Christ. Chilton asserts that for too long the Church
has labored under the delusion that failure is her only role in
the world. An inviting, yet non-threatening commentary for the
layman as well as the scholar.
The Great Tribulation
For centuries, Christians have sought to interpret the Bible's scriptural meaning - often erroneously assigning modern ideology to scriptural passages. This is perhaps the most comprehensive and easily understood writing available on this cataclysmic event "which so many Christians are awaiting." As Chilton proves however, it will be a long wait, since this event occurred in A.D. 70. This book is also an excellent tool for modern man in learning how Scripture interprets Scripture.
Paradise Restored: An Eschatology of Dominion
Does the Bible teach Christians to expect victory
or defeat in this world? In this powerful book, David Chilton
sets forth extensive biblical evidence for the historic Christian
view known as postmillennialism - the teaching that, before
the Second Coming of Christ, the world will be successfully evangelized
and discipled to Christianity. The author emphasizes that our
view of the future is inescapably bound up with our view
of Jesus Christ. The fact that Jesus is now King
of kings and Lord of lords means that His Gospel must be victorious:
The Holy Spirit will bring the water of life to the ends of the
earth. The Christian message is one of Hope: Pentecost was just
Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt Manipulators
Here is a supremely biblical refutation of Ronald
Sider's call for 1977 socialism in his book, Rich Christians
in an Age of Hunger. Chilton demonstrates that "Christian
Socialism" is simply a baptized humanism, the goal
of which is not charity but raw police state power. Combining
incisive humor with hard hitting arguments and extensive biblical
references, this book provides more than just a fascinating debate.
It is also a major introduction to the system of Christian Economics
with chapters on law, welfare, poverty, the third world, overpopulation,
foreign aid, advertising, profits, and economic growth.
America's Christian History: The Untold Story
Secular historians have been hard at work rewriting
America's history to suit their anti-Christian agenda. But there
are volumes of material that dispute this secularist myth. This
book is a penetrating analysis of founding documents, constitutions,
declarations, and institutions. It shows that the voice of our
nation's founders is clear: America was established as
a Christian nation. Christianity lies at the heart of our country's
life and character.
Christian Reconstruction: What It Is, What It Isn't
(see under Gary North)
The Debate Over Christian Reconstruction
What is "Christian Reconstruction" and
is it biblical? These are the questions raised and answered by
Gary DeMar. The occasion for this book was a debate in 1988 between
two Reconstructionists (Gary North and Gary DeMar) and two anti-Reconstructionists
(Tommy Ice and Dave Hunt). In The Debate Over Christian Reconstruction,
Gary DeMar presents what Christian Reconstruction is, and
then answers the questions raised by Tommy Ice concerning postmillennialism
and by Dave Hunt concerning biblical law.
God and Government I, II, III
Gary DeMar has produced three masterful, comprehensive
study guides to educate Christians needing to understand what
the Bible says about law, civil government, education, economics,
and more. Suitable for discussion groups, Christian schools, home
schools, and individuals, the God and Government series
ranges throughout the Bible and history to provide Christians
with a solid framework with which to understand the complex social
issues facing the Church today. Newly revised and reprinted.
I. A Biblical and Historical Study
II. Issues in Biblical Perspective
III. The Restoration of the Republic
Last Days Madness : Obsession of the Modern Church
For centuries, prophecy pundits have been predicting
Christ's return and the end of this world. These "prophets"
have had one thing in common: they have all been wrong. Gary DeMar
clearly exposes their error. He uses solid biblical analysis to
dismantle the methodology of today's prophetic writers. Last
Days Madness will open the pages of prophecy for you and will
renew in you zeal for the gospel and hope for the future.
The Legacy of Hatred Continues: A Response to Hal Lindsey's "The Road to Holocaust" (with Peter J. Leithart)
In his 1989 book, The Road to Holocaust, Hal
Lindsey accuses everyone who disagrees with his eschatological
opinions of being "unconsciously anti-Semitic." He particularly
singles out Christian Reconstructionists as guilty of this attitude.
In this short study, DeMar and Leithart expose Lindsey's non-sense
for what it is. They show that historic Christianity and Christian
Reconstructionism are not in the least anti-semitic, and they
demonstrate that it is Lindsey who is fostering a legacy of hatred
among his Christian brethren. It also demonstrates why Lindsey's
slipshod attempts at scholarship have made him an embarrassment

The Reduction of Christianity (with Peter Leithart)
This book is an answer to Dave Hunt's The Seduction
of Christianity. DeMar and Leithart agree with Hunt that the
New Age Movement is proving a siren song to many Christians, but
they disagree with his proposed solutions. In the place of Hunt's
pessimism and cultural negativity, these authors propose a full-orbed,
powerful Christianity as the only thing that can slice and dice
the New Age baloney. They demonstrate that historic Christianity
has always been both optimistic and culturally relevant. Timely
Ruler of the Nations
Does the Bible have the answers for the complex problems of modern civil government? Yes. Scandal ridden and conspiracy laden, our entire government is in trouble. Many constitutional experts fear that if the system does not soon
recover its integrity, it will not survive. But they
have little or no idea how to recover that integrity. The Bible
has the answers and this book outlines specifically what those
Something Greater Is Here: Christian Reconstruction in Biblical Perspective
A small, introductory booklet for anyone interested
in the basic doctrines of what is called "Christian Reconstruction."
It clearly shows that "reconstructionists" believe in
the sovereignty of God as it relates to personal salvation and
all aspects of the created order. It demonstrates that the Gospel
commission involves not only saving individuals - which is fundamental
and primary - but also the "discipling" of the nations.
The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God
At long last, John Frame's tremendous four-volume
study of "A Theology of Lordship" is underway. The first
published volume is his masterful discussion of how men know God.
Written in Frame's breezy classroom style, this extraordinarily
profound book is the first full presentation of the heart of presuppositional
philosophy that can be read by virtually anybody. A practical
and devotional tone pervades the discussion, making it valuable
reading in more than one way. This book is already transforming
the whole Christian intellectual world.
The Beast of Revelation
One of the greatest mysteries of all time is the
identity of the dread Beast of Revelation. The Bible describes
him as the ultimate villain in human history, the archetype of
evil, the incarnation of wickedness and perversion. Based on his
Th.D dissertation on the dating of Revelation, Dr. Gentry discusses
the evidence thoroughly but in a popular style, and lets the reader
choose for himself. But be forewarned: He has constructed an ironclad
case for Nero as the Beast. This volume also summarizes the evidence
for a pre-A.D. 70 date for the writing of Revelation.
He Shall Have Dominion
The vast majority of those who call themselves evangelical
Christians believe that the Church of Jesus Christ has been predestinated
by God to fail in history. Millions of Christians believe that
the Church will be "raptured" soon, removing Christians
from the turmoils and responsibilities of this life. Gentry argues
otherwise. He shows that Christians have many great things to
accomplish for Christ before He returns bodily to earth.
God's Law in the Modern World : The Continuing Relevance of Old Testament Law
This book clarifies in what sense New Testament believers
are not under law and explains the roles of the law in gospel
preaching, Christian conduct, and national policy. The author
also responds to objections against theonomy and sets forth the
practical benefits of applying God's law to all of life. Anyone
wrestling with the place of Old Testament law in the modern world
will find help in this very clear and concise treatment.
The Greatness of the Great Commission: The Christian Enterprise in a Fallen World
"Go therefore and disciple all nations."
The Great Commission states that all nations are to be discipled.
Sadly, today's evangelicals have reduced Jesus' last command to
mean only that individuals and families are to be discipled. Dr.
Gentry takes a careful look at the biblical context and background
of the Great Commission. His conclusion? That when God tells us
to take over the world, He means it! Gentry shows the biblical
methods of world conquest, which do not involve political takeovers
but rather service and evangelism.
House Divided: The Break-Up of Dispensational Theology
(with Greg Bahnsen)
In 1988 and 1989, three books were published that
criticized the theology of Christian Reconstructionism, and also
the theology of the entire historic Christian faith, by attacking
the idea of Christian social reform. They were Dominion Theology:
Blessing or Curse?, by H. Wayne House and Thomas Ice; Whatever
Happened to Heaven?, by Dave Hunt; and The Road to Holocaust,
by Hal Lindsey. The arguments of all three books are answered
in detail by House Divided, with Greg Bahnsen taking up
the question of biblical law, and Kenneth Gentry taking up the
question of biblical eschatology. What this book demonstrates
is that dispensational theology has now been shattered by its
own defenders. They are no longer willing to defend the original
system, and their drastic modifications have left it a broken
Bringing In The Sheaves
The problem of most so-called programs against poverty
is that they promote socialism and thus spread famine and despair.
Bringing In the Sheaves, by contrast, is an inspiring practical
catalog of private solutions to the problem of poverty amidst
The Changing of the Guard
The forces of morality have won substantial electoral
victories, and Christians are in the political arena roaring for
righteous vindication. However, abortion, pornography, and corruption
are still with us. The Changing of the Guard not only pinpoints
the problems of the politically naive New Right, it plots a course
of reconstruction as well. This gives Christians clear, scriptural
direction for gaining influence in the American political system.
A Christian Response to Dungeons and Dragons
(with Peter Leithart)
One of the chief weapons in the arsenal of the New
Age movement is a game called "Dungeons and Dragons."
In this booklet, Leithart and Grant show just exactly what this
phenomenal game is, how it works, and why it has been so popular.
They also provide a biblical critique of the game so that Christians
can know how to respond.
The Dispossessed: Homelessness in America
No one has ever written a book on homelessness and
social policy like this. Most books offer solutions like more
government control, centralization of the economy, and the abolition
of private property. George Grant asserts that the solutions to
homelessness can be found in the Bible, and he describes what
these solutions are.
Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood is one of the most powerful and
insidious organizations active on the American scene today. In
this exposé, George Grant shows that the legacy of Planned
Parenthood has been racism, sexual abuse, murder, and the general
corruption of the church, society, civil government, and the media.
The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, is regarded
as a saint by the pro-death forces in America but Grant shows
that in reality she was anything but a clean person. She was a
racist who wanted to cut down the birth rates of minority groups.
This is the book on the abortion holocaust in America today.
In the Shadow of Plenty
Social scientists don't know what to do about poverty.
They don't have the answers. Neither do most Christians. But the
Bible does. From the scriptures themselves, George Grant shows
how the Church could - and why the Church should - succeed where
the government has utterly failed.
Trial and Error: The American Civil Liberties Union and Its Impact on Your Family
The ACLU is notorious for its vigorous support of
anti-Christian policies in America, and has been one of the most
effective agencies for the secularization and demonization of
American law. As Grant shows, the ACLU supports child pornography,
legalization of drugs, prostitution, abortion, mandatory sex education,
and polygamy. Trial and Error contains true stories that
chronicle the way the ACLU has carried out these policies. In
his familiar, thorough style, Grant methodically uncovers the
ACLU's founding, strategy, and undeniable track record. You may
think you already know something about this powerful organization.
This book is guaranteed to reveal that you probably don't know
John Maynard Keynes is the most influential economist
of the twentieth century. The creaking world economy is based
on the ideas and policies recommended by Keynes. Keynes was not
just an economist. He was also a dedicated homosexual and a member
of a powerful British secret society filled with homosexuals that
Keynes himself recruited. His "masterpiece," the General
Theory, is utterly incoherent. It does not make sense. Neither
do the books written by Professor Douglas Vickers, a self-conscious
Keynesian economist and also a professing Christian. Dr. Vickers
has devoted his career to defending Keynesianism in the name of
biblical ethics. He has spent the last decade blasting Christian
Reconstruction in general and Gary North's Introduction to
Christian Economics in particular. Finally, Australian Ian
Hodge has written a devastating critique of Vickers and "Christian
Keynesianism." The myths of Keynesianism are exposed in clear,
no-jargon language. Vickers has never published a book in response.
Baptized Inflation silenced him. If you want clear answers
to Keynes, this is the book.
Advice From a Sojourner: Humility and Dominion in Proverbs 30
Proverbs 30 was written by Agur, a name that means "Sojourner." The proverbs of Agur discuss the relationship between humility and rule. In a day when Christians are rapidly losing influence in national and social affairs, the advice of Agur shows how such influence can be regained. The Christian is a sojourner in this world, but while in this world, he is to do what he can to make the world a better place. Agur shows how.
Simply written and arranged in 13 short chapters,
Advice From a Sojourner is perfectly suited for use in
either an adult or high school Sunday School for a quarter.
The Covenant Enforced
(edited by J. Jordan; see under John Calvin)
Covenant Sequence in Leviticus and Deuteronomy
In this path-breaking study, Jordan investigates
the literary and theological structure of the books of Leviticus
and Deuteronomy. He shows that the organization of these two books,
far from being random, is intimately related to the covenant God
made with Israel at Mt. Sinai. The sacrifices and laws of uncleanness
in Leviticus, for instance, form an extended commentary on the
creation and fall of man, while the law section of Deuteronomy
is a commentary on the Ten Commandments. A separate study of Leviticus
19 finds that chapter to consist of seventy laws, carefully arranged
in a theological pattern. Presented as outline studies, these
essays are both an important contribution to the ongoing discussion
of the covenant, and also useful Bible study aids for any serious
Crisis, Opportunity and the Christian
Western Civilization is coming to an end today. The
present crisis in our culture is the greatest since the first
century. Many commentators believe that the entire world is moving
into a period of "neo-tribalism." Theologian James B.
Jordan argues that this cultural change is part of God's ongoing
plan for humanity, the plan by which the Holy Spirit grows God's
daughter, humanity, into a fit bride for His Son. The present
crisis provides a tremendous opportunity for the Christian Church
to challenge and transform the world as never before. Jordan points
to how this can be done. While many view the present crisis with
dismay, and are looking backwards to older traditions, Jordan
argues that God is calling us forward, and that the Bible points
Pig Out? 25 Reasons Why Christians May Eat Pork
There is no biblical foundation for the teaching
that Christians should keep the "Mosaic dietary laws."
The Bible makes it clear that from Noah to Moses, believers were
free to eat any kind of animal meat they chose. A careful study
of the dietary laws shows that they were given for sacramental
and symbolic reasons, not for reasons of health. James Jordan
has studied this question intensively for several years. Here
he presents the fruit of the research that went into his 500 page
Studies in Food and Faith. He shows that eating pork is
a sign that the gospel has gone to all the world.
Daddy, why was I excommunicated?
Since the 1980's, conservative Reformed and Presbyterian
churches have debated over the issue of paedocommunion. Is the
table of the Lord for the children of the covenant? Read and find
Institutes of Biblical Law
This is the book that broke the ice and started evangelical
Christians thinking about the possible relevance of the Old Testament
law in the modern world. Packed with insights emerging from a
lifetime of study, this book is indispensable. Gary North added
three appendixes on controversial topics.

Why another book on divorce? Pastor Ray Sutton contends
that most books dealing with divorce and remarriage leave the
reader confused because they don't approach the subject of divorce
in terms of the covenant. Why is this important? Because marriage
is a covenant. Until we apply the principles of the covenant we
cannot understand divorce. Sutton skillfully applies the five
basic principles of the covenant to divorce and remarriage and
develops a practical and hopeful message for the divorced. Does
that mean that every divorce and remarriage is permissible? Sutton
says no - but every situation is redeemable.
That You May Prosper: Dominion By Covenant
God's relationship with us is covenantal. He judges
us covenantally. He fellowships with us covenantally. He disciplines
us, rewards us, and cares for us covenantally. The covenant then,
according to Sutton, is the Bible's most important doctrine relating
to the communion of God and man. If we do not understand what
the covenant is or how it works, we are certain to be crippled
in our walk with Christ. That You May Prosper examines
God's blueprints of abundant living for the family, church, and
government. As Dr. Gary North states: "That You May Prosper
will reshape covenant theology. Better put, it will actually
define covenant theology from this point forward."
Who Owns the Family? God or the State?
Our families are in trouble. They are under siege.
Many social analysts fear that basic family structures may not
survive and the very foundations of Western civilization will
crumble. This volume outlines answers to the problem. It assures
us that families can be saved if only we obey scripture's clear
The Children Trap
This volume outlines specifically what we can do
to restore academic and moral excellence in education. Likely
to be regarded by many as too controversial, this book "lays
it on the line" in its evaluation of government, private,
church, home, and Christian schools. The influence of this book
will help to dramatically change the thinking of believers who
sincerely desire to bring their views into closer conformity with
the demands of Scripture.
For years premillennial dispensational authors have
been predicting that Armageddon is just around the corner - and
for years their false prophecies have failed to come true. In
this update of his 1977 book, Armageddon Now!, Dwight Wilson
examines these predictions concerning Armageddon, particularly
as they apply to Russia from the time of the Russian revolution
unto today. With the dismantling of the Soviet empire, this book
is more timely than ever.

By What Standard?
An Analysis of the Philosophy of Cornelius Van Til (1959)
First published 28 years ago as Dr. Rushdoony's first
book, this remains one of the most significant works in the Christian
Reconstruction movement. This volume is based on the presupposition
of the sovereignty of the God of Scriptures over every area of
life. Because God is the creator of all things, He is the only
valid principle of interpretation: existence and meaning are both
derived solely from His creative act. By What Standard?
constitutes a frontal assault on all humanistic thought.
The Flight from Humanity (1973)
What is pietism? Reconstructionists attack it, but
where can you study it? This book traces the history of the fundamentalists'
commitment to withdrawal from social involvement. It began with
the Greeks, especially the neoplatonists. The Church has been
battling this mindset from the very beginning. Christianity has
been infused with Greek ideas. The result, in his marvelous phrase,
is "pious gush." Ideas have consequences. Bad ideas
have bad effects.
Foundations of Christian Scholarship:
Essays in the Van Til Perspective (1976)
The eight authors are committed to the interpretive
principle of biblical a priorism: the Bible judges both
the framework and the content of each academic discipline. Their
topics: psychology, education, economics, political science, history,
sociology, apologetics, philosophy, and mathematics. Rushdoony's
essay on Psychology and another entitled "The Quest for Common
Ground" make this a must for your library. This book is unlikely
to be reprinted.
Infallibility: An Inescapable Concept (1978)
There is no neutrality. Every system needs a concept
of infallibility. Without this, no one can even think. There must
be standards of truth, and they must come from an infallible source.
Rushdoony demolishes the pretensions of those who preach neutrality
and then impose their view on others.
Foundations of Social Order (1968)
One of the "top five" books by Rushdoony.
In it he traces the history of the early Christian creeds, showing
how they were the foundation of Western liberty and social order.
This book shows how the supposedly narrow debates of theologians
in fact established Western civilization. He cites sources that
have been long forgotten in the classroom, including seminary
classrooms. This book served as an introduction to The One
and the Many. A must!
The Messianic Character of American Education (1963)
Another book in the "top five." This one
proves from the writings of two dozen founders of American progressive
education that they were establishing a rival religion to Christianity.
It's all here: their quest for power, their strategy to take control
by way of the public schools, their belief in salvation by education.
Educators considered include Horace Mann, John Dewey, Harold Rugg,
G. Stanley Hall, and J. B. Watson (the behaviorist). Everything
is footnoted. This book has long served as the philosophical "Bible"
of the Christian school movement in the U.S. This was his third
The Nature of the American System (1965)
Rushdoony's hardcore revisionist view of U.S. history,
including one of his three classic essays on the United Nations,
plus his absolutely indispensable study of the Unitarian origins
of modern American humanism: "The Religion of Humanity."
The most important idea in this book is that the county, not the
state, was the basis of early American politics. This is the missing
link in any serious effort to restore the American republic. This
book was the sequel to This Independent Republic.
The One and the Many (1971)
One of the "top five." This book shows
that Greek and Roman religion and philosophy were statist to the
core, thereby making freedom impossible. This is Rushdoony's great
book against "Greek mythology": the myth of pagan Greece
as the cradle of Western liberty. The chapters on the Church and
the Reformation are important documents in the creation of Christian
Reconstruction. The book ends with modern philosophy. It is thoroughly
footnoted, yet readable. No student should take a course in Western
Civilization without reading this book first.
The Journal of Christian Reconstruction: Inflation (1980)
The editors of this journal are committed to Christian
scholarship and the journal is aimed at intelligent laymen, working
pastors, and others who are interested in the reconstruction of
all spheres of human existence in terms of the standards of the
Old and New Testaments. This issue contains articles centering
around the subject of inflation, it's causes and solutions.
The Journal of Christian Reconstruction: The Family (1977)
Any program of Christian Reconstruction which does
not begin with the family is doomed. The family is central. This
is the realm of personal responsibility in which almost all of
us operate. This is the institution which has the greatest impact
on future generations. This issue of the journal has essays from
14 authors discussing different aspects of the family.
Necessity of Systematic Theology (1979)
Just as there is no escape from the doctrine of infallibility,
so there is no escape from systematic theology. This book followed
Infallibility. The two constitute Rushdoony's preliminary
attempt to write a systematic theology.
This Independent Republic (1964)
A frontal assault on the myth of the origins of the
U.S. as a secular republic. America's roots are in medieval thought
and culture: deeply Christian. This book shows that the American
Revolution was in fact a conservative, Christian counter-revolution.
He contrasts this revolution with the French Revolution, which
was atheistic and radical. Chapters include "Equality,"
"Democracy and Anarchy," and "The Holy Commonwealth."
Thy Kingdom Come (1970)
A presentation of a postmillennial view of Daniel
and Revelation. He shows in great detail the historical settings
of these prophecies and their fulfillment in Christ and early
church history. A great history book!
