Latter-day Liberty: A Gospel Approach to Government and Politics

Latter-day Liberty was written by a friend and fellow Latter-day Saint libertarian, Connor Boyack, with a foreword by Mark Skousen. It was just released in time for the holiday season. Check it out.

Here are some notable endorsements:

Ron Paul, "Connor Boyack has written a fascinating book that applies Mormon theology to the central question of statism vs. liberty that dominates our age. Latter-day Liberty provides an insightful analysis of both historical and modern political issues, and challenges the reader to reconcile religious beliefs with state actions. Not surprisingly, he finds that our federal government routinely violates the religious principles that many Mormons hold dear.

Those who advocate limited government necessarily must advocate strong religious, civic, and social institutions. These institutions, rather than the state, should act as the central organizing mechanisms in American society. For this reason Latter-day Liberty can appeal to readers who are not Mormon, but simply recognize that their relationship with God compels them to question their relationship with the state."

Tom Woods, "Only someone knowledgeable in theology, U.S. history, constitutional law, and political philosophy could have taken on a task like Latter-day Liberty. Connor Boyack has proven that he more than fits that bill. The sheer weight of his evidence and the unfailing rigor of his arguments -- even when dealing with the hard cases, which Boyack courageously and persuasively confronts -- practically compel the reader to embrace liberty (the real thing, not the watered-down version peddled by most politicians) as the highest political good. A stellar achievement."

Doug French, "Latter-day Liberty couldn't be more timely. This poignant book serves as a wake-up call for Latter-day Saints, with Boyack and leaders of the LDS Church eloquently making the case for individual liberty."
