DJ is good...................'Gary North always manages to bring a lot of background and analysis into the subjects he covers. In DOMINION COVENANT, he conducts an economic analysis of the book of Genesis and shows why Christians have not only a rightful claim to the world around us, but that we have a duty to be legitimate stewards of the Earth. Growing up as a dispensational Christian, the Old Testament was usually presented in my church as good history but generally irrelevant to daily living and overall worldview. DOMINION COVENANT does a good job of bringing the book of Genesis into the daily life of its readers. The book is dedicated to Dr. Henry Morris, who has spent his professional career attacking modern evolutionary thinking by basing his scientific research on the presumptions of Genesis. What Morris did for geology, North expands into economics and the social sciences. One thing that North does with this book is to document his sources for many of his assertions, making this book a good research too. I do downgrade North on his overall writing. Although this book is more readable than some of his other works, DOMINION COVENANT is cumbersome and tedious. North often shoots his writings off on tangents (although there is a lot of interesting history here too) and also uses his writings to insult Christians of other traditions. While certain churches, such as the dispensational church I grew up in, do need to be brought to task, North often makes too much of using his otherwise serious scholarship to immaturely belittle those who don't see things his way. On the other hand, North is the only person I know of who has published a contemporary commentary on the social relevance of the Old Testament to modern Christians. If this subject interests you, read the Bible, then pick up DOMINION COVENANT. '--John J. Ketscher.
