Book Review: Taxation Is Slavery by Nick Watts

New to Volume 4 of the Christian Libertarian Review: a book review of Taxation is Slavery by Nick Watts. Many thanks to Taylor Drummond for this excellent review.

Summary Intro: In this review, the reviewer examines Taxation Is Slavery by Nicholas Watts both appreciatively and critically. The reviewer finds that Watts offers many insightful comments, chief of which is the connection between slavery and taxation in the Old Testament. However, four lacunae seriously hamper the cogency of the book’s argument: its brevity, lack of interaction with relevant sources, lack of detailed exegetical argumentation, and lack of an acknowledgment of the distinctiveness of Israel’s covenant administration.
