4.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Theological Giant Killer!, May 7, 2006
This review is from: The Messianic Character of American Education (Hardcover)
Four stars, but only because I am an amillennialist - not a theonomist or postmillennialist. Welcome to Post-christian America, and check the messages at the truthtapes dot com website by Brother Gene Breed - especially his recent series on the harlot church of these last days and her judgment in the Book of revelation .... But I am a sovereign Grace calvinist, and here and especially here in this irrefutable masterwork is where Brother Rousas shines brightest, in my humble opinion... and where I agree with him the heartiest. For man in his best state is altogether vanity; where unregenerate men hold sway they will vainly attempt to supplant the Triune God with all manner of inventions. Rushdoony takes the likes of Utopian Horace Mann to task, and spares not the likes of Humanist John Dewey. I first found and, riveted, read this book in its entirety in one sitting (they ran me out!) in the library of Washington University, St. Louis where and while enrolled in a philosophy of education course back in 1977....
The instructor of the course gave me an "A" but never returned the paper I wrote, refuting his anti-authoritarianism. It is a quick and an easy read, but a read that you will want to savor again and again and use for direct quotes in your fave online ed forums. Highest recommendation.
