R.J. Rushdoony convincing attorneys to change their views

The Contra Mundum publication asked this of R.J. Rushdoony:

Of your thirty some books…do you have any favorites, or ones that you think have been particularly influential?

Rushdoony responded:

A number have been quite influential. Back in the 1950s when I was writing The Messianic Character of American Education, [wife] Dorothy thought it was interesting, but wondered why I was so intensely involved in a seemingly hopeless subject since public schools were totally in command. But a great deal has happened since then. So that has been gratifying.

The interesting thing is that almost on publication a number of state boards of education asked someone to review the book for them since they were concerned…In Virginia, the attorney who reviewed it sent me a copy of his report in which he strongly approved of the book, having been converted to Christian education through it.
