Item description for The Third Alternative: Christian Self-Government by Bill Burtness...
Overview Understanding Government from the Biblical Worldview Back when the Soviet Communist tyranny unraveled in Eastern Europe, the result was economic collapse, civil war and bloodshed. Many of us thought it would mean freedom, peace and prosperity! Why did we suppose that? From where does liberty come? Is liberty simply the absence of tyranny? Is liberty the license to do what I want? Is democracy itself the answer? Can liberty be sustained? How is liberty sustained? Is God in control? How? Is there hope? Is civil government God's idea or man's idea? Are our American political institutions in any way scriptural? In The Third Alternative: Christian Self-Government, author and lecturer Bill Burtness has laid out in simple and practical terms a penetrating layman's primer on the moral (internal) and structural (external) foundations of freedom. It will teach you the "hows" and the "whys" of governing yourself under God, your family, your church, your nation, and every area of life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Third Alternative: Christian Self-Government?
This book is a "book for all time" Nov 13, 2003
I have not seen a piece of contemporary literature so gracefully and intelligently discuss the Biblical alternative to the "liberal left" and the "radical right" consequently giving the follower of Jesus a grid on which to hang and interpret news events and nation-changing narratives.
