How Superior Powers Ought to be Obeyed by Their Subjects; And Wherein They May Lawfully By God’s Word be Disobeyed and Resisted

We commend to you Christopher Goodman. He was a colleague of John Knox. He wrote this treatise on the doctrine of the lesser magistrates in 1558 – the same year as Knox’s Appellation to the Nobles of Scotland. Goodman understood that the interposition of the lesser magistrates was “the remedy” to the tyranny present in his day. Goodman’s work includes a response to common objections to the doctrine in that day. This work is filled with much good.  [Click here to read the treatise].
