 Other works:

Nobel Prize-winning free-market economist F.A. Hayek was also a defender of what he called “spontaneous order.” See generally, his The Mirage of Social Justice, volume II of Law, Legislation, and Liberty, published by the University of Chicago Press, 1976. See also J. Birner, ed., Hayek: Co-Ordination and Evolution, 1994.

Unfortunately, Christians have not frequently spoken in defense of “anarchism.” One exception is Jacques Ellul, Professor of Law at the University of Bordeaux, France, in Anarchy and Christianity Grand Rapids: Eerdmans (1988).

Works by Murray Rothbard and Bruce Benson are particularly recommended.

Here is a bibliography of Books on Liberty from an anarcho-capitalist website which logically leads to anarcho-capitalism even though most of the authors were not themselves anarcho-capitalists:

Other articles:

The Myth of 'Limited Government'
Joseph Sobran on the State and Hans-Hermann Hoppe.

Born To Be a Paleolibertarian
Brad Edmonds on anarcho-capitalism and cultural conservatism.

More articles from Rockwell.com on anarcho-capitalism

It should be noted, however, that the purpose of our thesis is not to defend the proposition that national defense, utilities, or arbitration of disputes can be more efficiently handled by private agencies. These are pragmatic or utilitarian considerations. Our focus is more theological:  whether abolition of the State is an ethically viable option from a Biblical perspective.
