What is government? Where does it come from? Should it be obeyed? If so, why? Having successfully challenged the authority of the papacy in Rome when it came to spiritual
matters, it was only a matter of time before Martin Luther (1483-1546) tackled the question of temporal authority: Who ruled the world physically. According to Scripture it was God, who by establishing and maintaining authorities on earth, accomplishes His purposes. But how was that to be understood? And how did it really work? Luther provides the answers in this work, one of the seminal writings on government of the modern western world.

Formatted into 22 simple chapters along with study questions, this 120 page book is perfect for personal devotion or Bible study.
