Editorial Reviews

Review

The Bible speaks of Christians as salt and light, but not as voters. What is our theology of engagement with the political process? Does our heavenly citizenship mean the Christian Church should not be concerned about earthly elections? A group of Christian writers cajoles and challenges our thinking on this critical contemporary concern, with intriguing outcomes. --Andrew Khoo (Member, Steering Committee, Bersih 2.0)

The Bible and the Ballot is a deeply reflective compilation of essays that represents the Zeitgeist of the Malaysian social conscience, real thoughts from real people who have struggled to clarify their positions on politics and society. Compelling reading as we all of us, no exception try to make sense of the country's changing democratic landscape and the roles we play in it, consciously or not. --Tricia Yeoh

On the eve of the 13th Malaysian General Election, these essays are a timely reminder to all Malaysian Christians that we should never be apolitical, that we should feel comfortable in voicing our political affiliation, that we should be politically engaged through various channels, that we should not be blindly and unquestioningly partisan, that we should engage with the relevant stakeholders with wisdom and courage, with our hearts, minds and spirits firmly fixed and dependent on Christ. --Dr Ong Kian Ming
