This book presents the case for the Bible as the sole foundation of valid social theory. Every social theory has a theory of sovereignty, authority, law, rewards and punishments. The Bible offers a unique version of such a theory. But modern Christians have rejected the idea of cultural progress. They also reject the idea of God's sanctions in history. Finally they reject biblical law. They have therefore been forced to import humanist substitutes for these three crucial concepts. Very few of them have recognized what they have done, or had done to them, in the name of Christianity. This book shows exactly what has to be done, and why it has distorted the Church's efforts of evangelism.
