Thomas Halliday (1799-1826) was a powerful Scottish preacher during the 18th century who died at an early age. In spite of his short ministry, he preached and taught on a variety of subjects (which Puritan Publications has published).

In this work on Romans 13:1-6, Halliday focuses on the office of the civil magistrate and government, and how the office of the magistrate sits under the Kingdom of God. Is Jesus King? Is he King over all? This is a refreshing treatise preached over two-hundred years ago especially in light of the current “two-kingdom” theories being propagated today. Halliday, with precision and conviction sets the biblical record straight and explains what the Bible and Reformed Church has taught for centuries – one kingdom under God.

He shows that Christians are to be subject to the higher powers, that Christians are to yield to higher powers, and that government is instituted by King Jesus. This is predicated upon understanding that such governments are to be godly. He shows the distinction between a providential and a preceptive magistracy, which he says is “a well–founded distinction.”
