Ron Sider offers a biblically grounded, factually rooted, Christian approach to politics that cuts across ideological divides. Shaped by a careful study of society, Just Politics will guide you into more thoughtful and effective political activity. It addresses perennially tough questions that often divide the church.

"Ron Sider once again proves that he is one of our country's most important public theologians. Tackling the most pertinent debates of the day, Just Politics offers a blueprint for how evangelicals can be politically active in a biblically coherent, spiritually mature, and publicly reflective way. Any Christian who is looking to be challenged in what it means to be faithful and politically engaged should read this book!"
--Jim Wallis, president and CEO, Sojourners; author, On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned about Serving the Common Good

"Ron Sider, the founder of Evangelicals for Social Action, sets forth in this book ways in which Christians can work for justice with the political systems of our day. Drawing on his extensive scholarly research and his lifetime of activism, he provides a scenario that can assist Christians who want to responsibly implement biblical principles in the decisions of government. Those who want to know how to make informed statements in response to the crucial issues of these perilous times will find this book an invaluable guide. Ron Sider writes with clarity and conviction. This book deserves praise!"
--Tony Campolo, Eastern University

"Ron Sider builds on years of experience and conversations with Christians across a very wide spectrum. His balance is better than that of most who want to influence politics for the better. And biblical faith is the solid platform on which he builds and balances. Listen to Ron carefully before taking your next step. Just Politics: that's what we need."
--James W. Skillen, former president, Center for Public JusticeRonald J. Sider (PhD, Yale University) is president of Evangelicals for Social Action and professor of theology, holistic ministry, and public policy at Palmer Theological Seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.
