Editorial Reviews

Review

...a book that every serious Christian should read. I especially liked [his] dismantling of...Christian involvement in the public school. -- Franklin López, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, University of New Orleans and Adjunct Professor at Tulane University.

Dr. Cobin is effective in explaining what the Bible says about the relationship between Christians and government. -- D. Eric Schansburg, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, Indiana University (New Albany) School of Business.

Dr. Cobin provides a valuable paradigm for analyzing public policy and understanding the state from a stridently Calvinistic worldview. -- Carl Robbins, Senior Pastor, Woodruff Road Presbyterian Church, Simpsonville, SC.

Format: Paperback
Bible And Government: Public Policy From A Christian Perspective by John M. Cobin (a devout Evangelical Christian, father of six homeschooled children, and Visiting Professor of Economics and Public Policy, George Mason University) is a sharply written, critical account of the expansion of American governmental power and the threatening implication said power has for Christians and the Christian community in particular. Professor Cobin offers noteworthy and insightful evaluations on public policies ranging from speed limits to food stamps, all with an eye to what Christianity demands in terms of obeying the government. Bible And Government is a thoughtful and thought-provoking read with ideas imminently worthy of serious consideration by students of Public Policy, Political Economy, and Christian Social Issues Studies.

14 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Douglas J. Douma on October 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
As a student of classicl liberal Economics and traditional Christianity I was extremely pleased to find a book that crosses the gap between Biblical thought and Government policy. The first half of the book was provocative and would be hugely beneficial for Christians and non-Christians alike to read. However, suddenly, on Pg 102, Dr. Cobin makes a ridiculous and shocking claim (with no evidence to back it up) that Greek Orthodox Christians belong to the Satan's Kingdom. Although it may be true that certain doctrines in any church have strayed from Biblical Christianity, it is going way to far to declare the entire Greek Orthodox Faith to be under the domain of Satan. With statements such as this, which try to rip apart denominations from Christainity, I question whether Dr. Cobin is in fact himself under the domain of Satan.

This is an excellent book. It outlines the responsibility of government to God and to His law. It also outlines the Christians obligation to both civil government and to the Law of Him who is the "One Lawgiver."

Format: Paperback
A novel approach that should have been obvious to Evangelicals long ago. Few books have an opportunity to change the way people think about such an important mattter as public policy. This is one such book. You will think about its implications for weeks after reading it. Dr. Lesle Long, Greenville, SC
