:Celebrated Theologian Offers Wisdom for Civic Engagement

Christian citizens have a responsibility to make political and ethical judgments in light of their faith and to participate in the political lives of their communities--from their local neighborhoods to the national scene. But it can be difficult to discern which candidates to vote for and which policies to support.

This nonpartisan handbook offers Christians practical guidance for thinking through complicated political issues and faithfully following Jesus as citizens of their countries. The book focuses on enduring Christian commitments that should guide readers in their judgments and encourages legitimate debate among Christians over how to live out core values. End-of-chapter reflection questions and bibliographic resources are included.
