“Some books burn. Some books are burned. Lex Rex is both.” — Michael A. Milton, PhD, Introduction, Foundations of a Moral Government
Foundations of a Moral Government is an abridged annotation of Samuel Rutherford’s classic Lex, Rex. The book that articulated the Biblical framework for democracy made accessible and explained for a new generation of free men and women—and those who aspire to freedom.
“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.” — Prof. John M.
