This work examines the whole “big picture” of transformation based on the “paradigm shift” or presuppositions from the primitivism of John Knox and others to the Enlightenment-based historical-critical method.
2006 0-7734-5598-1 This book addresses the idea that the judicial law of God, as found in the Old Testament of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, has a place in legal and political thought and practice, as well as economic thought, and has advanced in various forms since the beginning of Christianity, and previously, during the period of the Hebrew Commonwealth. This work traces the Theonomic movement and its ideas from its roots in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries into its modern form, placing Theonomy in context of legal, political, and economic philosophy.
