Edmund Opitz

Rev. Edmund Opitz (1914-2006) not only acted as an early leader in the organization of American libertarian thought, he also fervently and faithfully served the Kingdom of God throughout his life. With his extensive knowledge of American political history, theology, scripture, and the market economy - as well as the Austrian School of economics - enabled Rev. Opitz to serve as an excellent example and resource for Christian libertarianism. Though Rev. Edmund Opitz has sadly passed on, we cannot ignore his integral contributions to libertarianism; thus LCC wanted a designated author for our collection of his works.
