This is a very thought provoking read and though I didn't agree with all of Rushdoony's theology, I enjoyed the fact that he was constantly comparing what was happening in America at the time (These were written in the 60's), to past history. These issues, are still very prevalent today!
He covered a huge amount of topics and apologetically calls for reform in American government, the church, and fellow believers.

Read a handful of these Chalcedon position papers and reports. A more selectively edited volume of these would have been useful. There is a lot of needless repetition.

“Our progress in the past usually came slowly, and our recovery will come slowly. It will come as men, each in their sphere of action, begin the task of reconstruction. Reconstruction begins with our lives and God's grace; it extends to our vocations, our institutions' homes, and society' Life and progress are made up of a great number of little things; we cover a mile by small steps, and the surest move forward is that small step rather than a giant day dream.” 6 likes
