L for Lipscomb


One of the presentations at the ASC this weekend was by Ed Stringham on Christian anarchist David Lipscomb, founder of Lipscomb University and author of an 1889 work titled Civil Government, arguing for anarchism on Biblical grounds. I’d never heard of Lipscomb, but he sounded interesting, so I did a quick websearch – which brought up a webpage devoted to Lipscomb, including an online version of his book. So if you're looking for a principled antistatism founded in scriptural exegesis, take a look.
