The Law! What is it? Who gives it authority? May a crown and scepter, or elite council rightfully create it? Can a judge establish it? Or does One True Authority alone ordain it?

Everyone lives under Law as a protective blessing or a curse of tyranny. When Law protects life, liberty and property under God, people thrive. Yet world-wide, a self-serving, elite ruling class corruptly abuses Law, a weapon against the people it ought to serve.

John Eidsmoe offers a solution in this epic three-volume set.
