Editorial Reviews

Review

"INDIVISIBLE can change forever how you see the world. Grasp the wisdom shared in this book, and the scripture 'My people perish for lack of knowledge' will no longer apply. This can prove to be the much-needed game changer for America."—Gov. Mike Huckabee

"At the very least, every person of faith in America needs to read INDIVISIBLE. Whether the issue is the sanctity of human life, religious freedom, education, or economics, Robison and Richards provide biblical answers to often controversial issues. INDIVISIBLE is the kind of book that can alter the course of a nation if it is read and embraced by our nation's citizens."—Richard Land, President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

"I read this book from cover to cover, in one sitting, in awe of what God was up to in these pages. INDIVISIBLE builds a sure bridge of faith and reason over which our country can walk, from our present state of confusion and peril into a new era of peace and prosperity. My friends James Robison and Jay Richards have given the Christian community--indeed, all of us--an invaluable tool for hope."—Father Jonathan Morris, Fox News Analyst and Author of God Wants You Happy

"James Robison and Jay Richards chop up and stir some of the most indigestible issues of our time-sex, money, race, gender, education, you name it-and then bite down on the hot and highly seasoned casserole with relish and realism. You'll be talking to the chapters as you go along, cheering them on, and thinking about your Uncle Harry or an errant kid in college who needs to get INDIVISIBLE as a gift. I personally want to see it in the hands of those misguided politicos and media conservatives who think that social issues and economic issues can be separated. They can't, and these irenic and ecumenical authors-an evangelical and a Catholic-make that case persuasively, concussively clear. Presidential candidates, take note."—George Gilder, Co-founder of Discovery Institute
and Author of Wealth & Poverty and The Israel Test


"INDIVISIBLE can be a turning point in the moral, cultural, and economic decline of the United States-if its readers make it so. The authors-a leading Evangelical and a prominent Catholic-fairly and thoroughly lay out the fundamental principles without which family, freedom, and prosperity will virtually disappear in this country. If men and women of good will, aware of the historic challenges we face, cannot unite behind these principles-indivisibly social, moral, and economic-and elect leaders who will implement them, future generations will only know of the greatness of this nation as the fading story of a lost treasure."—Father Joseph Fessio, S.J., Founder and Editor, Ignatius Press

"Biblical clarity is a great gift today in the midst of our country's complex set of moral and social issues. In this book, Jay Richards and James Robison have given that gift to serious Christians who want to follow and serve Jesus Christ in America with wisdom, courage, and compassion."—Dr. E. Andrew McQuitty, Pastor, Irving Bible Church

"WOW! James Robison and Jay Richards' book, INDIVISIBLE, makes a courageous stand for the foundation of America. This is a recipe for restoring our culture."—Dave Stone, Senior Minister of Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, KY

"James Robison and Jay Richards have presented to every believer and concerned citizen the issues that must be placed on the table of reason and as focal points for prayer. This is a must read and if these truths are embraced, both the church and nation will experience much needed restoration."—Dr. Tony Evans, President, The Urban Alternative and Senior Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas, Texas

"A personal relationship with the Lord should affect every area of life, including the political. Politics can be confusing for many-even more so for Christians-as we struggle to make faith and political actions work together in a healthy way. Indivisible delivers concise, godly truth that will cut through the noise and help you develop a biblical perspective on political responsibilities."—Robert Morris, Senior Pastor, Gateway Church, Southlake, Texas

"James Robison and Jay Richards inspire us to find the necessary common ground to address our serious challenges. It is not a question of right vs. left, it is right vs. wrong. INDIVISIBLE provides the understanding that concerned people of faith need to help correct our nation's perilous course."—Dr. Jim Garlow, Pastor of Skyline Church, San Diego and Chairman of Renewing American Leadership, Washington, DC

"People are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Knowledge is damaged if not destroyed when it is detached from reality. Reality is God's perspective of life and how it is designed to function in His kingdom order. The book INDIVISIBLE contains knowledge, reality and life. For the classroom, living room, board room of corporations, or the war room of governmental decisions, James Robison and Jay Richards have addressed issues that must be faced.—Jim Hylton, Pastor of Skyline Fellowship, Fort Worth, Texas and author of The Supernatural Skyline

"A powerful, well-informed, persuasive argument that the `social' and `economic'issues ultimately will stand or fall together. James Robison and Jay Richards provide a fascinating analysis of all the major political issues today and show that conservative policies are both beneficial for the nation and consistent with Christian moral teachings."—Wayne Grudem, Ph.D., Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary, Phoenix, Arizona

"It is relatively easy to observe that our society is fast reaching a climactic moment. How to discern a wise, credible, effective and prudent course of action to avoid disaster is not so easy to come across. Jay Richards and James Robison make an important contribution in pointing the way to avoid the worst effects of a coming cultural and economic tsunami."—Rev. Robert A. Sirico, President, Acton Institute

"Everywhere I go, Christians have a sense of urgency concerning reclaiming the prophetic voice of the Church in the culture. INDIVISIBLE gives us a framework for understanding and advancing God's agenda in our lifetime. As an African-American leader, I applaud the sensitivity and clarity with which James Robison and Jay Richards have addressed "biblical justice" issues. Their heart for the poor and the least among us is clear, and their biblical solutions are revolutionary. It's time for the true `rainbow coalition'to come forth. This coalition is indivisible as it relates to believing God's covenant. It is indivisible as it relates to unity in the body of Christ. Finally, it's indivisible as it relates to walking our talk in the communities in which we live. As you peruse the pages of this excellent work, may you receive the inspiration to become an agent of His will in your own life, in your family, in your church and in our nation."—Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr., Senior Pastor, Hope Christian Church, President, High, Impact Leadership Coalition, Presiding Bishop of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches

"In a era when Washington's reach continues to exceed its grasp, INDIVISIBLE defines the right role of government, explains why social and fiscal conservatives should embrace both the morality of markets and the efficiency of the markets-and why doing so requires no simple act of faith."—Arthur Brooks, President, American Enterprise Institute

"Rather than accept the common view that faith and politics are ever to be divided, James Robison and Jay Richards appeal convincingly to indivisible principles to show not only that our moral beliefs are compatible with a free market, but also that-now more than ever-religious believers and the advocates of economic freedom must work together to help get our country back on course."—Matthew Spalding, Vice President of American Studies at The Heritage Foundation and author of We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering Our Principles, Reclaiming Our Future

"Finally, someone has provided the road map for how America gets through the difficulties we are currently experiencing. With their book INDIVISIBLE, James Robison and Jay Richards review American history in great depth, as a prelude to outlining the process for recapturing American Exceptionalism. This book is a critical read for every concerned American and a blueprint for the Christian church. I am encouraged by the unity of effort between these two men of different theologies who put aside their differences in order to help save the nation. Great job, guys!"—LTG(R) Jerry Boykin, Former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and founding member of the US Army's Delta Force

"James Robison and Jay Richards remind us that good stewardship of freedom's blessings means recognizing that the moral and economic foundations of American liberty are indeed, indivisible."—Jennifer Marshall, Director, Domestic Policy Studies
The Heritage Foundation


"For years I was a bystander concerning national issues. I felt it wasn't necessary for me to get involved, especially since my husband is on the front lines. The Lord has shown me how important it is to know the issues so I can pray and stand up for what is right. INDIVISIBLE will equip you with what you need to know so you can present, discuss, and defend your beliefs effectively in these trying times. You, too, can make a difference!"—Betty Robison, Co-host, "LIFE Today" Television,
Fort Worth, Texas


"James Robison and Jay Richards have given America a tremendous gift. INDIVISIBLE is a stunning synthesis and super clear explanation of the most important issues facing us today, full of wisdom and grace and truth. It should give all who read it real hope that God has not forsaken this nation and that there is indeed a way forward. I pray that book groups will study this book and use it to become part of the solution, so that America might again fulfill God's call upon her, to be a beacon of hope and freedom for the world."—Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery

"This is no grocery store romance novel. But it is full of love and truth--the twin sources of every great romance. So... 'read and heed'... and step up to an active role in restoring America to her glorious roots--`with liberty and justice for all.'"—Stu Weber, pastor and author

"We cannot have a strong national defense without a strong economy. We cannot have a strong economy without a healthy culture and vibrant, in-tact families. These assertions are demonstrable; a blizzard of research proves them. In their moving new book, INDIVISIBLE, James Robison and Jay Richards make a compelling case that Christians must continue working - with grace, humility, diligence and determination - to advance the sanctity of life, the dignity of marriage and the traditional family and the centrality of religious liberty to our nation."—Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council

"I have read dozens of books on how to apply a Christian worldview to public policy, but INDIVISIBLE is by far the most clear, simple, and compelling book of its kind. I especially appreciate how James and Jay acknowledge thearguments against their position and respond in a reasonable fashion. You may disagree with what they say, but you'll have to admit that they've been agreeable in the way they said it. INDIVISIBLE not only sound a clear note, it does so in a way that brings civility to anoften uncivil arena."—Jeff Myers, Ph.D., President of Summit Ministries

The material presented in this book is well documented.
Joan N.
This is a must read book for anyone who believes that our country is on the wrong track and are wondering what happened and how do we fix it.
Johnnie Kramer Sr.
To the authors, defending freedom in the social realm is to in fact defend laws against things like abortion and gay marriage.

This book is a thorough survey of what has become the greatest debate of our time--the role of the government in our lives and the prospect for personal freedom. This is unabashedly a Christian conservative book. As such, it will be disregarded off hand by anyone who leans away from the religious right. But that would be a terrible mistake. Like another awesome book on the modern political system, Juggernaut: Why the System Crushes the Only People Who Can Save It, this book delves into some of the most fascinating paradoxes of the modern world and shows just how twisted it has become. It is an argument that everyone can appreciate, no matter what his political stripe is.

The insight begins with the title. What exactly is indivisible anyway? The authors bring up the fact that freedom cannot be divided between fiscal and social issues. If you want freedom, you must strive for freedom in both. This is where the interesting part comes in. When the authors say that one must strive for freedom, they are not saying that one must be able to do whatever they want to do. As they put it, freedom is "getting to do what you don't want to do, not to do what you want to do." And by taking this frame, the authors make the claim that, in order to defend freedom, you not only have to prevent government intrusion on the fiscal and economic plane, but also on the social plane.

To be sure, the authors oppose government intervention in fiscal areas, but they also oppose government intrusion in the social realm as well. What is interesting is that they don't take this to mean that we should legalize everything from abortion to gay marriage.

I scream at the top of my lungs when I read a book about politics that is not practical. This book is practical. It frustrates me when I read a book about politics that is inspiring but doesn't give any "red meat" on how ordinary people can win the debate. This book, INDIVISIBLE, has TONS of red meat.

There are many things I love about this book.

First of all, I love that a minister highly respected in the evangelical community such as James Robison teamed up with a Catholic scholar because he was the best person to co-write the book with. Period! That, my friends, is John 17 lived out.

Secondly, I love that James and Jay deal with the national debt, the problem with entitlements, and our national fiscal crisis in a way that Christians can understand the debate and also gives them ways to communicate the issues and take action.

Thirdly, I love that the authors not only take on the fiscal issues, but they show why the moral and cultural debates in this country on life, marriage, and God is the public square cannot be ignored because they are the underlying fabric that is unraveling around us. As individual lives and families fall apart, our country one life at a time needs healing. We have to reverse the trends.

Though our national problems seem to be so big and overwhelming at times, we can reverse these problems one life at a time and one issue at a time; but we have to get engaged in the issues with our families, our friends, our churches, and our communities. We have to remember that it is an inside outside work that only God can do, but he uses individual God empowered people to make a difference.

We can make a difference in America as individuals and James and Jay give us all a great resource to lean on in INDIVISIBLE.

Format: Hardcover
Summary:
A call to faith-filled values back in the political square, Indivisible may come off as a conservative checklist of Right-Wing ideologies, and while there are certainly such far-right views, we hear two gentle voices that are passionate about Christian-American ideals.

While they might not quickly change anyone's mind, this sobering work on a wide range of issues -- marriage, abortion, war, business, immigration, parenting, poverty, capitalism, the environment -- is a biblically informed admonition that will organize your thoughts about God and the government. Some chapters are better than others, but Robison and Richards are careful to be nuanced, fair, and clear. Every chapter details not only the problem, but outlines solutions as we look forward to the future of the nation.

Strengths:
I've always been extremely uncomfortable with two topics: Money and Politics. It feels like the church always degrades itself when it comes to these two areas because the church has constantly failed when it's tempted by either. Talking politics in the church never goes well for very long, and many will either ignore it in the pulpit and the pews or will rally for a particular issue at the expense of genuine discourse. To say it plainly, the church is too turned on or too turned off by the political realm. But at some point, we do need to talk about it. The political machine will keep running amidst our denial or relish, and we must get involved somehow.

Indivisible is almost an introductory course on conservative values. The authors instantly tackle the idea of "conservative values." God is neither a Democrat or Republican, nor does He advocate public policies in the Bible.
