Liberty, God's Gift to Humanity
Liberty: God's Gift to Humanity is a defense of the political philosophy which holds that governments
should be established for the protection of individual liberty. Since the 17th century the bond between this
political philosophy and religion has been strong. Where and when that bond has been severed, political
liberty has withered and religion has become tyrannical. Although libertarians, free market economists, and
the Christian right often disagree about the nature of man and the nature of the universe, this work provides
a philosophically and historically coherent account of their shared commitment to limited government and
"This book impressively brings together the merits of political liberty, religious liberty, and economic
liberty, which few books even attempt because of the complex relations among them. But this book does it
and does it well... The author understands the connections among these three dimensions of the human
social enterprise and expresses them in a proactive and engaging way."
