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.
