Dave has taught and preached the word of God at churches in Germany and Belgium, as well as his home church in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Dave Jeffers is a retired Army Master Sergeant and his 22 years of active duty not only allowed him to travel the world, but to also adopt a worldview based on Biblical principles and life experiences.

More About the Author

Dave Jeffers is a Sunday School Teacher, Bible student, and lay preacher. Dave graduated magna cum laude from Liberty University with a bachelors degree in religion. Dave received cum laude honors at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary with a M.A. in Theological Studies.

Dave has taught and preached the word of God at churches in Germany and Belgium, and for the last 13 years at Midway Baptist Church in Gulf Breeze, FL.

Dave is a retired Army Master Sergeant and his 22 years of active duty not only allowed him to travel the world, but to also adopt a worldview based biblical principles and life experiences. Dave's love for Christ, politics, and his plain spokenness allow him to cut through all the rancor and confusion found in the debate surrounding many of today's "hot-button" issues.

Dave and his wife Karen love living in NW Florida, doting over their grandson Benjamin, their two daughters Becky and Tiffany, and Tiffany's husband Ben.

Dave will tell you that the problems facing America today cannot be fixed through economics or politics, because our problems are not economic or political. They are spiritual and without a revival coming to America our nation will not rediscover its national virtue and return to what the Founding Fathers had envisioned when constructing our Constitution.

I highly recommend that you pick up this book.

God's word was the very foundation of not only our Founding Documents and Republican government but also of how we treated one another.
Craig
Mr. Jeffer's solid Christian worldview is the foundation for this thought-provoking, though practical book.

I was really interested to read this book. As a British 'evangelical' Christian who is interested in the issues at stake, and who has friends in various parts of the USA, I thought it would be a helpful look, and also help me to understand my transatlantic cousins.

However, the whole book was totally undermined by the author's tacit assumption that all evangelical Christians must necessarily come to the same conclusions and have the same priorities as he does, and frankly that gets old really, really fast.

The sad thing is, if he was willing and able to say, "most evangelicals" or "a majority of American evangelicals", for example, then most of the time one could let things slide, but no, he paints the whole sweep of Bible-beliving Christians the same colour (and that would be red).

Jeffers seems to have his own definition of evangelical. We "believe in moral absolutes and the inerrancy of the Bible" - yup, I can go with that. But apparently we also believe in "a strong military, a free-market economy" - um, correct me if I'm wrong, but "Thou shalt believe in a free-market economy" doesn't appear in any Bible I've ever read, and I'm pretty sure "Thou shalt have a strong military" is not one of the major themes of the New Testament. For sure, a lot of the _American_ evangelical Christians I know do subscribe to these beliefs, but not all of them, and certainly it's not any part of the definition of being an 'evangelical Christian' - it just happens to be a view some evangelicals subscribe to.

David Jeffers book "Understanding Evangelicals" is a helpful companion to his Aletheia Group web portal and his wonderful daily devotionals. He is great at explaining deep topics to the uninitiated, and at giving the initiated the tools they need to help others understand Evangelicals. David Jeffers is a good man and a good writer who is doing good things in the world. I highly recommend that you pick up this book.

Format: Paperback
There are far too many Christians who have been conned into believing that there is a de facto "separation of church and state" in our nation which prohibits them from bringing their faith into their politics. Chirstians are always told, that politics and religion "don't mix." And that we are electing a "president not a pope" and so on. The fact of the matter that this nation was founded by Evangelical Christians who knew that this country would only survive if our nation's leaders were led by godly wisdom. They knew that our ability to govern ourselves would be directly proportional to living our Christian faith. They knew that our rights were inalienable (i.e. God given) and that if we were to survive and prosper that we would have to ensure that Christ would be King. That's righ- no other King except for Lord Jesus. Politically incorrect? You bet. But nevertheless- the truth. For over 300 years, Americans knew the Bible backwards and forwards. God's word was the very foundation of not only our Founding Documents and Republican government but also of how we treated one another.

That began to change radically around the middle of the 20th century. When the Supreme Court ruled in 1962 that in Engel v Vitale that school prayer was unconsitutional and that the Bible could no longer be taught, Biblical truth was essentially replaced with post modern secular humanism-moral relativism.

And since that time almost 50 million babies have been murdered in the name of "privacy." Sodomy based "marriage" is now "legal" in the Cradle of Liberty. Teen age suicide is an epidemic.

The culture war is at a fever pitch.

As we enter the election cycle, and with the political Right engaging in the same litmus test politics that kept them from achieving victory in 2006, everyone within the GOP - and everyone in general - should strive to understand what makes the Evangelical community tick.

David Jeffers' book allows arare insight into the dogma of the Evangelical community.
