Item description for The Biblical Philosophy of History by Rousas John Rushdoony...

By R.J. Rushdoony. For the orthodox Christian who grounds his philosophy of history on the doctrine of creation, the mainspring of history is God. Time rests on the foundation of eternity, rests on the foundation of eternity, on eternal decree of God. Time and history therefore have meaning because they were created in terms of God's perfect and totally comprehensive plan. The humanist faces a meaningless world in which he must strive to create and establish meaning. The Christian accepts a world which is totally meaningful and in which every event moves in terms of God's purpose; he submits to God's meaning and finds his life therein. This is an excellent introduction to Rushdoony. Once the reader sees Rushdoony's emphasis on God's sovereignty over all of time and creation, he will understand his application of this presupposition in various spheres of life and thought.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Biblical Philosophy of History?

The Philosophy of History: God's Story  Dec 23, 2009
R.J. Rushdoony's writing has always been grounded on the foundation of Christian Theism (CT). He never left the sure and immutable fount of the Triune God of the Bible, though just a few years ago he died after authoring dozens of books. "The Biblical Philosophy of History" finds the erudite Rushdoony mature, confident,and ready to press the crown rights of Christ on history and its undistorted intention.

The author rests his entire view of history on the sovereign God from which the Lord decreed every act which played out in history, both small and large. The lives of all men, time, creation, and interpretation of history all have true meaning within God's specific and comprehensive design and purpose.

No other worldview can furnish the a priori necessities to account for historical purpose and meaning. If one denies CT as one's driving presupposition, one fails to establish the pre-essentials for truth required for a invariable philosophy of history.

Furthermore the tools the historian applies in attempting to discern true history (if he affirms one can know anything true about history; historians who deny such, stultify themselves inasmuch as they are asserting something true about history: that it is true that one cannot know anything true about history).

The necessary rational instruments that the historian employs are the Law of Identity, The Law of Non-contradiction, and Moral Law. These laws are immaterial immutable universals. A material mutable particular cosmos fails to ground these universals. Only CT furnishes the epistemic credentials to ground the Laws of Thought forasmuch as God is immutable and universal in knowledge and power.

Since Rushdoony read about a book a day for sixty years, he knows how to communicate in an easy-to-understand manner. This is a good introduction in Rushdoony's application of Van Til's thought on a momentous topic.
