Overview


Biblical Christianity was originally a sect of Judaism that believed in Jesus and revered the Torah as the core of her scriptures. Restoration is a riveting argument for a return to that original biblical expression of faith in Jesus.

Discover for yourself the profound beauty of Torah life, the celebration of the biblical Sabbath, and the application of God's holy feast days. Your eyes will be opened to another dimension of the faith that is beginning to reemerge among Christians worldwide.

Lancaster answers common theological objections to the Torah, while demonstrating that Christians are already keeping more of God's Law than they realize. This thought provoking, theological boat-rocker is a fun-to-read inspiring journey into the world of the Bible.

Editorial Reviews

John Mort
Just in time for the elections, Will offers a penetrating look at the need for term limits. They have historical precedent: they were discussed as the U.S. Congress was forming, but in those days few legislators wanted long service. Now, Will thinks, there is a clear, almost urgent need for limits as a reform measure. His biting examples of abuse of power come from both parties: Democrat Robert Byrd and Republican Newt Gingrich are among the hardest hit. While such men deliver the pork to their constituents, that's much of the problem; they do so without regard for the rest of the country, or, perhaps worse, ethics. A lawmaker ought to vote his or her conscience, Will argues, citing the great English conservative, Edmund Burke. Not to do so takes representative government out of the realm of deliberative democracy and delivers it up to special interests. Long terms in Congress virtually assure that legislators will be compromised at every turn. Finally, Will lays out a course of action to enact term limits: they will rise out of state legislatures, he thinks, before reaching Congress. Political analysis at its best, not unlike those Federalist papers Will so much admires.
