Left, Right & Christ: Evangelical Faith in Politics

By Lisa Sharon Harper and D.C. Innes

Left, Right & Christ

Description

Does God stay out of politics? Should we? Can a Democrat be a Christian? Should the government take care of the sick? Do legalized abortions increase the number of abortions? Is the definition of marriage universal for all? Does a free country mean that everyone is free to live here? Does defending our nation mean we should kill our enemies? Is the earth so fragile that the government should step in to protect it? Are we willing to have an open mind or will we keep the party line?

As a nation, we are ensnarled in divisive political debates. We cannot afford to ignore the issues as they shape our nation and our lives. But the status quo is not helping either. In Left, Right and Christ, Harper and Innes provide thought-provoking clarity and give us all the opportunity to understand the world of politics from a distinctly Christian perspective. The stimulating dialogue will empower you to review the issues of the day and make your own decision.

Discerning properly between what the parties have in common and where they differ, we will be able to open our minds to both political sides while learning what the Bible has to say for our contemporary world. Jesus called us to live beyond ourselves and to love our neighbors and our enemies. This conversation can help us to break the political divide and come to conclusions that are both for the good of our nation and for the good of all.
