Why I Wrote the Book
I wrote Foundations of a Moral Government because so many have forgotten or have never been taught about the intellectual and historical influences that brought about the founding of the United States of America. It is important that we know that our rights come from God and are, therefore, not to be subject to the whims of fashionable but ultimately destructive human forces to the contrary. A modern version with annotations needed to be written to meet this challenge. Thus, I began the study. This work is the fruit of that inquiry.Michael A. Milton, PhD, author
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.
