Too Much Government? Sep 27, 2000
In his book, God and Caesar, John Eidsmoe introduces a new perspective to the old question of the separation of church and state. Mr. Eidsmoe presents the idea of "two kingdoms"--the church, and the state. Two institutions that are indeed separate, but they over-lap each other in that there are people who are subject to both powers. For the Bible-believing Christian there is a problem: how to obey the laws of the government even when those might go against the church, and vice versa. John Eidsmoe expertly addresses the situation and arives at a conclusion that no one can ignore. Eidsmoe does not rely on the Bible alone in his argument, but being a attorney who specializes in First Amendment cases he uses numerous court cases to get his point across. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the debate about religious freedom, and for those who simply wish to study how American government works. I give it 5 stars.
