“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” — Psalms 136:1
Do we need God’s mercy? We wouldn’t last five minutes without it! Psalm 136, “For His mercy endureth forever,” inspired this essay by R.J. Rushdoony, published in the Chalcedon Magazine 20 years ago.

The Lord of the Rings ends with all the bad guys destroyed and only good guys left. Why can’t my Bell Mountain series end that way? At least one reader has called for me to stop the series and cap it with some kind of “final victory.” Sorry, but I just can’t do it. My […]
