Product Description

Conventional scholarship holds that the theology and social ethics of the Reformed tradition stand at odds with concepts of natural law and the two kingdoms.

But David VanDrunen in Natural Law and the Two Kingdoms: A Study in the Development of Reformed Social Thought challenges that status quo through his careful, thoroughgoing exploration of the development of Reformed social thought from the Reformation to the present.

Editorial Reviews

John Bolt 
— Calvin Theological Seminary
"The strength of this book is the overwhelming amount of historical evidence, judiciously analyzed and assessed, that positions the Reformed tradition clearly in the natural law, two kingdoms camp. This valuable contribution to our understanding of the Christian life cannot and should not be ignored or overlooked. The growing acceptance of the social gospel among evangelicals puts us in jeopardy of losing the gospel itself; the hostility to natural law and concomitant love affair with messianic ethics opens us up to tyranny. This is a much needed and indispensable ally in the battle for the life of the Christian community in North America."

    As VanDrunen is attempting to trace the development of a theological idea through the centuries, the work is somewhat repetitive. But I feel as though he has researched the topic adequately enough and it will be useful certainly for Reformed and Lutheran students and give insight to other Christians as well.
