The question, "Why should I obey the law?" introduces a contemporary puzzle that is as old as philosophy itself. The puzzle is especially troublesome if we think of cases in which breaking the law is not otherwise wrongful, and in which the chances of getting caught are negligible. Philosophers from Socrates to H.L.A. Hart have struggled to give reasoned support to the idea that we do have a general moral duty to obey the law but, more recently, the greater number of learned voices has expressed doubt that there is any such duty, at least as traditionally conceived. The thought that there is no such duty poses a challenge to our ordinary understanding of political authority and its legitimacy. In what sense can political officials have a right to rule us if there is no duty to obey the laws they lay down? Some thinkers, concluding that a general duty to obey the law cannot be defended, have gone so far as to embrace philosophical anarchism, the view that the state is necessarily illegitimate. Others argue that the duty to obey the law can be grounded on the idea of consent, or on fairness, or on other ideas, such as community.

People obey the law if they believe it's legitimate, not because they fear punishment--this is the startling conclusion of Tom Tyler's classic study. Tyler suggests that lawmakers and law enforcers would do much better to make legal systems worthy of respect than to try to instill fear of punishment. He finds that people obey law primarily because they believe in respecting legitimate authority. In his fascinating new afterword, Tyler brings his book up to date by reporting on new research into the relative importance of legal legitimacy and deterrence, and reflects on changes in his own thinking since his book was first published.

Jesus is very candid about what He calls us to do, whether it's prayer, love, confession, judgment, or even just to trust in Him. But often the last thing we do is the first thing He requires, which is to simply obey. Obey is a candid look at the way Jesus calls us to live through His words and commands. It is a reflection of one follower's journey, beginning on a mission in poor, rural South Africa, to fully appreciate the power of obedience to Jesus. What he found was that Jesus never gave unclear, ambiguous instructions for life-He was very straightforward. While His commands are not always easy, they are life-changing for those who choose to listen, pray, and act on them. Obey provides a challenging, but inspirational, starting point to achieving the power of the obedient life.

God always speaks clearly, simply, and concisely, in His Word. His Words always carry with them great meaning for you and me. His words also are written in such a way so that we can understand and obey them. In the book, I Hear I Obey, you will learn the importance of obedience, on every level, especially to God. You will also discover how the words "to hear" tie directly in with our obedience. You see, we must first hear God's Word, before we can obey Him. Join with me, step by step, as we learn how to obey the Master's voice and graduate from His School of Obedience. Also discover the importance of family to God. By making family a priority in our lives, we are obeying God. Chris Louer is a native born Californian who lives in Mission Viejo, California. Chris, a bible teacher, received the Lord at the age of seven, and has been teaching and ministering to women for over twenty years. God's faithfulness to His Word is a reality to Chris and the gentle, practical way she encourages women, has won her the loving respect of women she has ministered to in Bible Studies, retreats and converences, and individually over the past twenty years. Chris and her husband Ron have been married for thirty-six years. They have two grown married daughters, Melissa and Adrianne, four grandchildren, as well as two godly son-in-laws, Shane and Aron. With boldness and practical teaching, Chris delivers the Word to this current generation, alerting the Body of Christ to what God requires for us to remain overcomers in these days.

How can it be? How can salvation be God’s gift of grace through faith and not by works; yet there are tons of Bible verses that connect eternal life directly to obedience and faithfulness? It was a great aid to me to see how both are given, and they do not conflict at all. I have written several papers to show this, and they have been helpful to a number of people. So I am enclosing these into a book form. Each paper shows in various ways how both the faith and obedience verses are valid and precious. “According to Scripture … very good … I agree with everything in it … I don’t think we will ever fully know God’s part and our part, but this is the closest I have ever seen … It is the best bridge I have seen … I feel it is a unique and much needed contribution.” (concerning Paradox). —Dr. Robertson McQuilkin, president emeritus of Columbia International University “Very thought-provoking! I’ve been aware of this Paradox, but having it presented like this highlights the grace-works elements in our faith which must be confronted. It also broadens one’s appreciation for the Word.” (concerning Paradox). —Dave Scovill, missionary, translator, missions counselor, administrator, and writer
