God’s Law is Christianity’s tool of dominion. This is where any discussion of God’s law ultimately arrives: the issue of dominion. Ask yourself: Who is to rule on earth, Christ or Satan? Whose followers have the ethically acceptable tool of dominion, Christ’s or Satan’s? What is this tool of dominion, the bibically revealed law of God, or the law of self-proclaimed autonomous man? Whose word is sovereign, God’s or man’s? Millions of Christians, sadly, have not recognized the continuing authorigy of God’s law or its many applications to modern society. They have thereby reaped the whirlwind – cultural and intellectual impotence. They implicitly have surrendered this world to the devil. They have implicitly denied the power of the death and resurrection of Christ. They have served as footstools for the enemies of God. But humanism’s free ride is coming to an end. This book serves as an introduction to this woefully neglected topic.

Awesome book...Awful reader.
If this is your first introduction to this book and you find yourself rather listening to it than reading it, do yourself and Dr. Bahnsen the due respect of reading this book from the paper copy or even free digital copy.
The audible reader of this book does this great theologian ZERO justice in his reading. It’s horrible with no edits and butchers this piece of excellent literature. The book gets 5 stars but the reader gets 0, hence the 3 star rating.
