It has often been difficult for Christians to agree on the role that faith ought to play in national affairs. How does the gospel influence the decisions one makes with regard to controversial political and social issues? In this volume, prominent Christian thinkers and social theorists consider the role of Christian principles in American politics. While writing from a variety of theological positions, the authors share a common sense of the importance of Christian commitments and the belief that they ought to influence the life and culture of our nation.
Essays in the first section of the volume focus on historical, theological, and theoretical issues, while the second section offers practical responses to current moral and social dilemmas.
Contributors include Ronald J. Sider, Michael Cromartie, Christine D. Pohl, and Richard D. Land.
