Hermeneutical Prologue for
Discovering Basic Jurisdictional Principles
What is the proper division between Church and State?
Does the Bible say anything about this problem?
If so, how reliable is it to actually establish that division?

These fundamental questions can be understood to be at the core of every problem that humans encounter in law, politics, and government. They are central to the long-standing human problem of constructing good human government. It’s therefore reasonable for Bible-believing Christians to fervently seek biblical hermeneutics that consistently generate such wisdom and knowledge. Any attempt at reconciling biblical truth with extra-biblical truth would be negligent if it failed to attempt also to deal with these Church-State issues. The primary focus of this book is on expounding such hermeneutics. But to show the implications of such hermeneutics, the book is also dedicated to showing how such hermeneutical principles apply in the everyday, 21st-century political, legal, and governmental arenas.
