The voluminous work of the late Dr. Rousas John Rushdoony, founder of Chalcedon Foundation, has remarkably influenced Biblical understanding in the twentieth-century church. Faith on Earth? by Lou Poumakis crisply summarizes Dr. Rushdoony’s applied Biblical faith in this readable and pithy overview. It begins with Christ’s question, “When the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Lk. 18:8). Faith is a big term. Faith means understanding that God is our great Father, Lord, and Redeemer. Everything in life belongs to Him. In this world of ultimate spiritual battle for the souls of men, everything matters for God’s glory and mankind’s good. Otherwise, all must count toward sinful death and destruction. No territory is neutral. Faith requires the constant, thorough seeking of God, of His purposes, and His ways.
Lou Poumakis is a retired electrical engineer who practiced this profession until 2002, but has been a serious student of God’s Word since his conversion in 1974. He was ordained as elder in the Christian Reformed Church and later as minister in the Federation of Reformed Churches. Early on, he was attracted to the work of R. J. Rushdoony at Chalcedon Foundation, where he discovered Postmillennialism and Christian Reconstruction. These doctrines reflected a truly Biblical Christian faith that possessed a dynamic that contrasted favorably with the outlook that predominated in what he had seen elsewhere. Faith on Earth? is primarily based on information garnered from this source. Before writing Faith on Earth? Poumakis published several articles relating God’s Word to current events. Lou Poumakis and his wife Joan have been married since 1955 and now live in Florida. They have been blessed with two children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
