Harry Jackson and Tony Perkins believe that America stands at a crossroads. As a nation we must choose God's blessings or His destruction of our society. The "Religious Right," as it has been termed, often looks to the world as its enemy, and many Christians have seen themselves as combatants in war against anti-God forces. In Personal Faith, Public Policy, Jackson and Perkins take a radical new position, stating that the Christian church must lead morally and impact the culture with personal spiritual power and unified Christian public policy, demonstrating how a unified church can tackle each one of the seven major problems of our culture. Achieving victories in each of the seven areas presented will result in vanquishing the big problem facing our country????????????moral decay.
Is there a set of public policies and personal choices we can make that will ensure another four hundred years of God's blessing upon America? Today we stand at a crossroads. In Personal Faith, Public Policy, Harry Jackson and Tony Perkins take a fresh, balanced look at the core issues we are facing today, laying out a comprehensive strategy that can bring evangelicals together across racial and denominational lines to: 1 Preserve and Protect Life by continuing our fight for the unborn; addressing issues such as child abuse, stem cell research, elder care and euthanasia, and capital punishment; and standing firm against those who would take innocent life through acts of terrorism, 2 Reform Immigration Policy by improving our legal immigration process while dealing with our rampant illegal immigration problem, 3 Alleviate Domestic Poverty and Ensure Justice at home by reforming health care and reasserting our mission to help the working poor, orphans, widows, and the destitute to find personal, spiritual, and financial refuge, 4 Cultivate Racial Harmony and Diversity by developing partnerships across racial lines and raising up minority leaders in key politically active ministries, 5 Protect Religious Freedom by learning the truth about the separation of church and state, the current religious liberties battleground, and what the Bible says about the freedom of religion, 6 Defend Marriage and Family by supporting promarriage policies and divorce reform at both the national and state levels, 7 Protect the Environment by properly caring for God's creation and making changes in America's energy policies. America's future can be as bright as the promises of God. To realize these promises, we must take action on these seven critical steps in our private lives, in our churches, and collectively in our public policy. Book jacket.
