About Jefferson White
Jefferson White is an independent scholar and the author of three books.
His first book, Evidence and Paul’s Journeys: An Historical Investigation Into the Travels of the Apostle Paul (2001), is an overview of the historical evidence surrounding the travels of the Apostle Paul as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles and in Paul’s letters. In the words of one scholar: "It is very encouraging to see that the most recent research that is not readily available to the Christian who is nevertheless keen to place the Book of Acts in its first-century setting has been so carefully gathered together and presented in such a readable form.”
His second book, The Political Theory of Christ and Its Creation of Our World (2015), was written following ten years of research into the impact of Christ’s political teaching on the political history of the West. In the course of that research, he became convinced that Christ’s distinction between the authority of Caesar and the authority of God, within the temporal realm, both defined and ignited the political revolutions of the West.
From the time of the rise of the Christian church, as a spiritual authority completely independent of the state, down to modern constitutionalism, and its creation of radical separations of power within the political and social orders, Western society has been noted for its deepening separations of power over time.
His third book, Destroying Progressivism: A Strategy (2018), is a short overview of the radical decentralization of political and social authority that is already the next stage of the computer and Internet revolution. He demonstrates how this technological revolution will make it possible to radically decentralize both American politics and society.
