Providence, Piety and Power

  1. About this book
  2. Reader Comments
Few Christians today understand the principles for good
government written in the Bible. In this sweeping analysis John
Petley outlines the development of political thinking, first within
the Scriptures and secondly in their application in Europe and
North America. Reaching an apogee in the work of
Reformation and Puritan theologians Petley describes how the
application of these Scriptural principles brought an
unprecedented wave of blessing and prosperity to those nations.
Tracking onwards through history, Petley follows the rise of
atheistic philosophies and ideologies, rooted in the Enlightenment
era, and how they undermined the Christian foundations of our
society, leading directly to the moral and economic morass in
which we now find ourselves.
