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!

1 review 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.
