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.
