What if we had a guide to help us understand God's will for human government? In fact, we do.
There are two books that help us navigate through the overgrown thicket of human ideas about governance: The Holy Bible and Lex, Rex. The Bible speaks directly and indirectly, by teaching and by example, of the principles of human government. The great work by Rutherford, Lex, Rex, exposits these principles and truths in 44 assertions. Until now, Lex, Rex was largely inaccessible to the modern reader. Rutherford's words need to be communicated in a fresh, informed, and relevant way for today's readers.
A new abridged, annotated, Standard English edition of Samuel Rutherford's Lex, Rex by Dr. Michael A. Milton is needed, now more than ever, so that we might return to the sacred ideas of human government that were foundational to the establishment of government in the United States and influential to the constitutional monarchy in Great Britain.
Until now, Lex, Rex was largely inaccessible to the modern reader. Moreover, Rutherford's words needed to be communicated in a fresh, informed, and relevant way for today's readers.
"We owe many thanks to Mike Milton for careful work, analyzing and paraphrasing Rutherford for modern readers. He has used well his gifts as a linguist, a pastor, and a theological scholar. As we endure this historical period of radically divisive political debate, it is hard to imagine a better gift to the American people than this restoration of Rutherford's important work." - John M.
