Rousas John Rushdoony (1916-2001) was a minister best known through his extensive literary output. His writings cover a broad spectrum of subjects because his belief was that every area of life and thought should be understood in terms of a world view that assumes God’s Word is both true and authoritative. He is best known for leadership role in Christian education (day and homeschool), his revival of theonomy (Biblical law), and Christian Reconstruction (a term he coined to denote a neglected aspect of the Christian responsibility and response to sin in the culture.)
A former teacher in Christian schools for almost two decades, Mark Rushdoony has also served for 14 years as the director of a K-8 School. For over 30 years he has been with Chalcedon, a non-profit organization started by his father that promotes the belief of the supremacy of God’s Word in all matters of life. When his father, Rousas John Rushdoony passed away, Mark succeeded him in 1998 as president of Chalcedon and Ross House Books, a subsidiary of Chalcedon that publishes books about Christian Reconstruction. He is the editor-in-chief of Faith for All of Life, Chalcedon’s monthly magazine, and travels widely as a well-respected pastor and speaker.
Martin G. Selbrede is the Vice-President of the Chalcedon Foundation and senior researcher for the organization’s ongoing work of Christian scholarship. He has written numerous articles, essays, and position papers for such publications as Faith for All of Life, the Chalcedon Report, and The Journal of Christian Reconstruction. He has traveled extensively to speak on behalf of Christian Reconstruction and the Chalcedon Foundation and is considered one of the foremost experts in the thinking of R. J. Rushdoony.
