This is a Biblical, confessional and historical study of Baptists and the State by H. Rondel Rumburg. It calls attention to a neglected fact: Baptists have led this country in effective and godly civil disobedience, and the U.S. is better for that resistance. The great error today is that too many Baptists assume that the doctrine of the separation of church and state means the separation of Christianity and the state. Because ‘the God of eternity who created time rightly controls time,’ every area of life and thought must be under Christ. The great Baptist leader Isaac Backus fought against the establishment of any church but for the lordship of Christ in the state and in every realm. Injustice always results when men govern or are governed by laws made by men. This is an excellent book for teaching in Christian Schools and church study groups.
