For the orthodox Christian who grounds his philosophy of history on the doctrine of creation, the wellspring of that history is God. Time rests on the foundations of eternity, on the eternal decree of God. Time and history, therefore, have meaning because they were created in terms of God’s perfect and comprehensive plan. The humanist faces a meaningless world in which he must strive to create and establish meaning. The Christian embraces a world which is meaningful and in which every event moves in terms of God’s purpose. He submits to God’s meaning and finds his life therein. The Biblical Philosophy of History is an excellent introduction to Rushdoony’s work. Once the reader sees Rushdoony’s emphasis on God’s sovereignty over all time and creation, he will understand his application of the presupposition in various spheres of life and thought.

Rousas John Rushdoony

Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001) was was a well-known American scholar, writer, and author of over thirty books. He earned degrees from the University of California, received theological training at the Pacific School of Religion, and received an honorary Doctorate from Valley Christian University for his book The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum.

Rushdoony was an ordained minister and served as pastor at two California churches. He served for almost nine years as a missionary to the Shoshone and Paiute Indians in a remote area of Nevada. It was during this time as a missionary that Rushdoony began writing. The Institutes of Biblical Law and Commentary on the Pentateuch are just a few of the titles that Rushdoony has penned.

The Chalcedon Foundation, an educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and cogent communication of a distinctively Christian scholarship to the world at large, was founded by Rushdoony in 1965. He served as the editor of The Chalcedon Report, the monthly magazine of the Chalcedon Foundation.

Rushdoony also published the Journal of Christian Reconstruction and was an early board member of the Rutherford Institute which was founded by John W. Whitehead.
