After Polygamy Was Made A Sin: The
Social History of Christian Polygamy (#3345) by John Cairncross.
Cairncross contends in this fascinating historical
analysis that it was when the Church became centered in Rome that
“polygamy” became a “sin.” Based on rigorous research he
demonstrates however that there is a strong underground polygamous
Christian tradition, including support from such prominent figures
as Milton, Newton, Spinoza and others.
|Man and Woman in Biblical Law (#6275) by Tom Shipley. The goal of this book is to lay the foundation for the establishment of a truly biblical social order, especially within the community of Bible-believing, Christ-honoring families. The subject matter is patriarchy and the biblical exposition contained herein is devoted to establishing the proposition that it is patriarchy which is and was mandated by God ever since the original creation of man and woman. The biblical exposition on polygamy here serves a supporting role to the fundamental proposition of God-ordained and mandated patriarchy. 268 page PB $29.95|
