The Law! What is it? Who gives it authority? May a crown and scepter, or elite council rightfully create it? Can a judge establish it? Or does One True Authority alone ordain it?

Everyone lives under Law as a protective blessing or a curse of tyranny. When Law protects life, liberty and property under God, people thrive. Yet world-wide, a self-serving, elite ruling class corruptly abuses Law, a weapon against the people it ought to serve.

John Eidsmoe offers a solution in this epic three-volume set.

The 2016 Nordskog Publishing Edition greatly expands the index to support research and scholarship!

3 reviews for Historical and Theological Foundations of Law

  1. :

    These three volumes are an extraordinary work. They lay the clear foundation of the biblical impact on our laws. They are thorough, comprehensive and well balanced. I would recommend these volumes to all who have an interest in history, especially as it relates to the influence of the Bible and the clear record of God’s blessings throughout history.

    I usually annotate books as I read them for ease in finding especially important portions for future reference. There are few pages in these volumes that do not have underlines, brackets, check marks, or exclamation points on them.

    Review: Historical and Theological Foundations of Law 3 Book Set by: John Eidsmoe

    About the Book:
    The Law! What is it, and where does it get its authority? Because someone with a crown and scepter has commanded it? Because a council has adopted it? Because a judge has upheld it? Or is law “law” because a Higher Authority has ordained it so? The Laws of Nature? And of Nature’s God? Do “echoes of Eden” remain, faintly reminding us of an Original Plan? What is the Common Law? When did it begin? Is it relevant or binding today? And what of the Laws of the ancient Hebrews-an irrelevant footnote, or the cornerstone of all true Law?
    With unparalleled scope and minute detail, Historical &Theological Foundations of Law studies the legal systems of ancient societies all across the earth, explores their common threads and differences, and traces their development through history, and notes common trends that should cause hope or alarm today. Embark with us on a journey to discover the earliest origins of Law.

    Volume I – Ancient Wisdom
    Volume II – Classical and Medieval
    Volume III – Reformation and Colonial John

    My Review:
    The foundation, as well as the creation of law, existed way beyond the current or even previous generations. This is a known fact, of course. The Bible even has God’s laws as its foundation. The author has set about to discover, research, and write about the law as it was in ancient times dating back before recorded history. He takes us through history in chronological form to; if you will take us back to where it all began.

    His research and well-worded commentary are simple, straightforward and to the point. It is entirely understandable, and it was something fascinating to me. Law isn’t just a simple thing to wrap your head around. I see it as very cerebral and can take on a shape all its own.

    The author goes on to explain many things about the different foundations of law. He is very thorough. I think my favorite part of volume one was when the author discusses Hebrew law. I love how the author was able to explain the law and its happenings during Biblical times further. Lot and his daughters and when Abraham bargains with God just to name a few.

    Fascinating commentary and forethought that gets you to discovering more things about the Bible. Therefore gaining in knowledge and just overall, learning more about its foundations.

    **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    Historical and Theological Foundations of Law consists of three volumes of history. These are Volume 1: Ancient History; Volume 2: Classical and Medieval; Volume 3: Reformation and Colonial. These amazing books clearly show how the Bible laid the foundations of our laws. The books are thoroughly and thoughtfully researched by John Eidsmoe, a retired Lt. Colonel in the Air Force and a Colonel in the Alabama State Defense Force. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Oak Brook College of Law and Government Policy, the Handong International Law School in South Korea and the Institute of Lutheran Theology.

    I had my doubts that this subject could be covered in a manner that would maintain my interest, as the law can be a bit dry for me at times. However, from the first page of Volume I through the last I have highlighted and notated almost each and every page.

    I can honestly say that I have enjoyed these books and would highly recommend anyone with an interest in law, history or the Bible.

    I was given these books by bookfun.org and Nordskog Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
