The Institutes of Biblical Law, vol. 3: The Intent of the Law


Mark R. Rushdoony 1999

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


God's law is much more than legal code. It is covenantal law. It establishes a personal relationship between God and man. The first section of this volume summarizes case laws. The author tenderly illustrates how the law is for our good, and makes clear the difference between the sacrificial laws and those that apply today. The second section vividly shows the practical implications of the law. The examples catch the reader's attention, as Rushdoony draws from his experience of practicing and discussing God's law. The third section shows that would-be challengers to God's law produce only poison and death. Only God's law can claim to express God's covenant grace in helping us.

About Rousas John Rushdoony

Rousas John Rushdoony (1916–2001) was a well-known American scholar, writer, and author of over thirty books. He held B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of California and received his theological training at the Pacific School of Religion. An ordained minister, he worked as a missionary among Paiute and Shoshone Indians and as a pastor to two California churches. He founded the Chalcedon Foundation, an educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and cogent communication of a distinctively Christian scholarship to the world at large. His writing in the Chalcedon Report and his numerous books inspired a generation of believers to be active in reconstructing the world to the glory of Jesus Christ. Until his death, he resided in Vallecito, California, where he engaged in research, lecturing, and assisting others in developing programs to put faith into action.
