The original edition of "The True Meaning of Submission" had the basic values and provided a bibliography. Then I bought more to give to friends. They sent me the second edition. What a disappointment! First it was badly abridged. It also changed the important tenets and in places, they actually contradict important points in the original. I don't know why. I can only guess. 1) Possibly the publisher surrendered to government orders to take out anti-submission to all edicts. The original points out the difference between a legitimate government and those who have usurped the government office and because of their abuses, are not ordained by God.

The picture beside the comment looks like it is the original edition, not the second edition. I am skeptical and would have to have some verification as to which edition being sold. Even though I had made a strong point the second edition does not pass the smell test. I ordered the original edition but the second edition was shipped to me. Hence, caution is advised. If they convince me I can get the original, I will buy some more.

GO to chuckbaldwinlive.com Some are trying to sell this book for an extremely ridiculous price! The author sells the book on his website for $20 bucks!

What a great book! Thanks for helping me understand what it means to submit, and whom to submit to. I've been through the book once and I plan to re-read it, checking scriptural references as I go. I highly recommend this book to those Christians who have questions about governments who don't follow God's mandate to punish evil and uphold good.

An excellent coverage of this VERY IMPORTANT topic... the misunderstanding of this passage of Scripture has resulted in the loss of our freedoms. "STAND FAST therefore in the Liberty wherewith Christ has made you free and become not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." THIS IS OUR NATION! IT IS A SIN to surrender it to the powers of evil--and a sacrilege (insult on top of injury) to do so in the name of "Christian" tolerance, love, obedience, submission, etc.

For other excellent books on this topic, see:

- The War Between the Children of Light and the Powers of Darkness (which has one of the most thorough coverages of Romans 13, detailed exegesis showing NOWHERE in Scripture does God expect His people to submit to evil--especially usurpers...!), by Robert A. Balaicius;
and
- The Christian and Civil Government: Romans 13, John Weaver;

I've spent a few hours with the second edition. I appreciate that the Baldwins have provided this book on such a serious and important subject.

I strongly encourage them to find an editor to help with the third edition. There are several basic writing errors in the first 20 pages. For example, there is at least one improper use of principal vs principle. There are also at least two places in which "begging the question" is used improperly. Laypeople often use it to mean that an observation causes the reader to think of a question. That's not what "begging the question" means in scholarly writing.

The writing is very unnecessarily complicated and the chapters need a much smoother logical flow. I read Chapter 1 three times before I understood their argument, which was pretty simple. Some section breaks within the chapter might have helped.

The KJV is used throughout. I would've greatly preferred a more modern literal translation. While the KJV is a fine translation if someone prefers it for their personal reading, the purpose of this book is to excavate the truth for a difficult issue. The use of old English presents an additional hurdle to overcome, so is counterproductive. The NASB (which is more accurate than the KJV anyway) would be a far better choice in my opinion.

I'm thinking of putting it back on my shelf and waiting for a third edition. If I hang in there and finish it, I'll report back whether or not my opinions have changed.

I gave it three stars because I had to provide a rating. I wish the Baldwins the best in their future endeavors. I think they could do a lot better.
