Item Description...
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.

The Law of the LORD is perfect!   Mar 11, 2008
The modern church is characterized by antinomianism. The clergy and the laity spout forth cliché's and humanistic ideas and claim them as Christian. Modern man struggles with the idea of a perfect law word. Rushdoony, in "The Institutes of Biblical Law Vol. I", tackles this garbage with the idea that the law word of God is the only source of infallible truth we have.

Many humanists and pietistic Christians (which is a redundant statement) will attack this book, because they prefer autonomy to God's law, but Rushdoony shows in this masterful work that the law of God is far superior to any man made law system. It is rather ironic that many in the Church today are just as lawless as their non-Christian neighbors. They reject God's law without really even knowing it. In this book the law of God is examined, and it is found not to be wanting. The book is also full of many great examples of humanistic law that is supposedly so much better than Biblical law, and the entrapments that come with it.

I first read this book 12 years ago. There are many things Rushdoony writes that were a challenge to my thinking. This book, however, is a must read, for any one who has ever struggled with the question of the relevance of the Law of God in the Christian Life and in society. Far too often Christians reject God's law outright, or they simply internalize it. By what standard will we be able to disciple the nation if we reject the law word of our King?

I have also read Volumes 2 and 3 and while I considered the section on community in Book 2 to be very good, nothing in either of these volumes rises to the greatness of the first book.

Good book to have!  Sep 27, 2007
Great framework for viewing biblical law! Can get a bit "wordy" sometimes but it is a great book!
Solid Biblical Application for Today  Jul 3, 2007
Although I am not a "theonomist" per se, this is a must read for any serious Bible student. Modern Christianity has turned the Old Testament into a storybook for simple life application. This approach renders most of the Old Testament, e.g., Lev, Num, Deut, et al. void and not applicable today. Such an approach is misguided, and this book will provide a framework of OT law and challenge you to apply it's principles today in modern culture. If you study the Biblical Law, you will find it wonderfully relevant to today's issues, and find yourself saying with the Psalmist, "I delight in God's law and meditate on it day and night". You will also marvel at God's wisdom, love, mercy, wrath, and sense of justice. This book will foster an in-depth understanding of God's law and help you to grow in Christ-likeness as well.
The founding fathers of the United States created a Republic under God based on its Declaration of Independance's " of Nature's and Nature's God." And any violation of this Law of Nature and Nature's God by any government it was deemed a right and a burden for the general people to change or dismantle that power being seen as corrupt - against God and thus against the people.
The earnest question today is what is this "Law of Nature and Nature God." Blackstones "Commentary on the Law," tells us 'natures law' is seen in creation and 'nature's God' is revealed law i.e. the Bible. Once we come to see the foundation of our Repubic as biblical then the 'Institutes of Biblical Law' becomes an important resource for us and our nation. Only if our Nation is willing to draw upon the revealed law and its commandments can we live true to our birth right ie. Declaration of Independance (yet understood by all our founding fathers as Independance from tyranny).
Foundational to Understanding the Bible and History  Jan 6, 2006
As a pastor for over 30 years, few books have changed my whole understanding of the Bible and life on earth as much as Rushdoony's Institutes of Biblical Law. For those who think the Bible is irrelevant to modern life and culture, you simply must read read this book. This is an incredibly practical study of the Ten Commandments and how it applies to society. This is one of the most profound books I have ever read.
