The Puritan View of Substantive Biblical Law
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
“George Gatgounis has once again given to us a look at the matter of law in a way that most cannot. Adding to his former work on Calvin, the Magistrate, Dr. Gatgounis now provides for us the development of Biblical Law as understood by the Puritans. His knowledge of this subject is supported by his training in law and in theology. We find in Gatgounis’s book on the Puritans a look at their society, gifts, and their vision of a Christian community. I highly recommend it.”
—H. Wayne House, Faith International University and Seminary
"This volume provides a much-welcomed and detailed study of Puritan jurisprudence and its foundation in Puritan exegesis and theology. The study clearly articulates the linkage between Puritan theology, Puritan spirituality, and Puritan society. More than a historical and theological study, readers will find much upon which to reflect concerning the heritage of sources, purpose, and functions of law in contemporary society. Readers across many disciplines should find helpful information within these pages."
—Timothy J. Demy, US Naval War College
