While the title implies a bias against Republicans, reading the book proves otherwise. Not far in, the author states that "God is not a Democrat, either." What this book is out to prove is that conflating religion with politics is a dangerous game, as our Founding Fathers well knew when they established the "wall of separation" between religion and state. Readers wanting a thoughtful and essentially unbiased account of the incursion of religion into politics will enjoy this book.

God is not a Republican is an excellent book. If you're like me - a Christian who has been very unhappy about the unholy marriage between evangelical Christianity and the Republican Party, you will find a book that clearly speaks to you. I pray that all Christians would be open to Dixon's message. He comes across as a man who loves the Lord and has also been concerned about the cause of Christ being mistaken for conservative politics. I have news for my fellow Christians - they are not the same! I came from a staunch Democratic family and when I made a personal commitment to Christ, I was more than happy to vote for Jimmy Carter the year he ran for the presidency. But over time, our leaders and pastors told us the Republican Party was God's party. This caused me to just hate voting because I felt it was God's will to vote Republican even though I do not agree with the philosophy of government the Republicans believe. This shift hinges on two issues Christian leaders have focused the church on to the exclusion of other important issues - abortion and gay marriage. Somehow if we just let the Republicans run the country and we outlawed these two things, America would be a "Christian nation". This thinking is so pitiful. After 30 years of voting for Republicans, we still have women getting abortions and gay marriage being approved by more and more states. I would suggest that if Christians really wanted to protect traditional marriage, they would seek legislation to outlaw divorce, but, of course, that would hit too close to home for many people in the church. I am so grateful that Benjamin Dixon and others are starting to speak out about this issue.Read more ›

Amazing scholarly work! The content is more prevalent today than when it was first published. It is a heart-tugging, self-evaluating, reality check! It should be on the recommended reading list for all public leaders, policy makers, professors, philosophers, and preachers. Bravo, Mr. Dixon!

A prophetic, especially authentic, book for the times we live in--where ideology and conscientious stupidity are pervasive in pews and politics.

...but He is most certainly a conservative, since conservatism is merely the practical, day to day application of Godly morality and wisdom - properly understood from the entirety of biblical revelation. Those who see "progressive" or "left-wing" political support from Scripture are (either through ignorance or intention) cherry-picking what they want and ignoring the rest.
