Well, you can start by getting his name right!
That’s what the late R. J. Rushdoony’s son, Mark R. Rushdoony, wanted you to know right from the get-go when he gave this talk about his dad earlier this year.
It’s hard to believe that the movement begun by his dad — after he had coined the term “Christian Reconstruction” to refer to the rebuilding task Christians have in this world — is now in its 6th decade of existence.
Here, Mark Rushdoony offers a unique perspective on the man: the perspective of a son growing up under his father’s ministry from its earliest days. He speaks of the men who shaped his thinking, and the experiences that formed his approach to applying the Bible to all areas of life.
This was the first of several very interesting and insightful lectures given at Branch of Hope Church (OPC) in Torrance, California.
I plan on posting more of these. Stay tuned!
