R.J. Rushdoony’s intellectual and religious influence

Rushdoony and his tiny handful of acolytes saw their gradualist strategy begin to transform conservative Protestant thinking across the United States. Within a decade of the publication of The Institutes of Biblical Law [in 1973], the book was a familiar citation for law school faculty at Oral Roberts University, Pat Robertson’s CBN/ Regent University, and Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University. This widespread awareness of Rushdoony’s ideas coincided with the explosion of religious broadcasting that was facilitated by cable and satellite television networks.
