The Christian world and life view is a comprehensive one that covers every area of life and thought. The faithful Christian must always ask, "What does the Bible have to say about life, culture, and our social order?" In order to begin to answer that question, we've featured a list of important areas of study relating to Christian Reconstruction. These are an effective way to introduce yourself to a theology of the Kingdom. Click on any one of the links below to read more about the subject.

He's considered one of the most important Christian thinkers of 20th century, and his writings, sermons, and lectures have influenced both individuals and movements. In 1965, he launched the Chalcedon Foundation which served as the spearhead organization for publishing and promoting Christian Reconstruction. Discover Rushdoony!
To attempt to study Scripture without studying its law is to deny it. To attempt to understand Western civilization apart from the impact of Biblical law within it and upon it is to seek a fictitious history and to reject twenty centuries and their progress.
The best description of the tenets of Christian Reconstruction, as espoused by Dr. R. J. Rushdoony, is found in his "Christian Manifesto".
Man was created in the image of God and commanded to subdue the earth and to have dominion over it (Gen. 1:26-27).
Systematic Theology is an effort to apply Scripture systematically to various spheres of faith and life. At the same time, the title distresses me, because too often "systematic theology" now has reference to a seminary subject taught by a member of the "Theology and Philosophy of Religion Department."
One of the most basic and continuing problems of man's history is the question of the one and the many and their relationship.
The dictionary definition of education describes it as "the impartation or acquisition of knowledge, skill, or discipline of character." The function of education is thus to school persons in the ultimate values of a culture. This is inescapably a religious task.
Carle C. Zimmerman has pointed out that there are three types of families in history: the trustee, the domestic, and the atomistic families.
The original constitutional settlement did not propose a "separation of Church and State," although that phrase is increasingly used by the courts to sum up the constitutional position.
The problem which confronts all non-Christian philosophies, and all ostensibly Christian philosophies which presuppose to any degree the autonomy of man and a world of brute factuality, is very simply this: How can brute facts ever be anything more than brute facts?
Law and economics are necessary aspects of man's daily life: it is impossible to live without them. The more a sound knowledge of law and economics decline in a society, the more radical will the decay of that society be.
On the surface, a myth is the illusion of an age or a culture whereby life and its origins are interpreted. As such, the myth has an axiomatic truth to the age and is its criterion for judging and assessing reality.
Humanistic psychology gives us a doctrine of man radically at odds with Scripture. It has become routine for clergymen to look to humanistic psychologies for guidance in pastoral counselling, and books applying such psychologies to pastoral problems have had a ready market and a widespread influence.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. (Matt. 5:6)
The Christian faith once meant that a believer responded to a dark world by actively working to bring God's grace and mercy to others, both by word and by deed.
Revisionism is long overdue in American history, and in historical studies generally, lest history as a discipline disappears into the abysses of the social sciences.
Every social order rests on a creed, on a concept of life and law, and represents a religion in action. Culture is religion externalized, and, as Henry Van Til observed, "a people's religion comes to expression in its culture, and Christians can be satisfied with nothing less than a Christian organization of society."
History, therefore, is not the outworking of impersonal forces but a personal conflict between the forces of God and anti-God, Christ and antichrist, with the ultimate victory assured to God and His Christ.
