Review

It is one of our favorite questions - is God a Republican or a Democrat?

Many, if not most, Christians begin with the wrong question of who they should vote for rather than the more important question of how they should vote. Asking the correct question is fundamental to knowing how to arrive at the correct answer.

Scriptural principles exist for both our personal and our political quandaries. We should be willing to dig deep to find them and move away from voting based on tradition or mere preferences.

Dr. Tony Evans takes on foundational questions of a Christian approach to politics.
· What does the Bible say about the role and responsibilities of government?
· How can we be salt and light when our political systems fail us?
· Should we submit to candidates we didn't vote for?
· What if we don't know who to choose, or worse - what if there is no good choice?

Evans won't pressure you to check this box or that, but he will equip you with solid biblical principles that will challenge you to vote with a kingdom perspective - informed, compassionate, and aware of who is really in charge.

TONY EVANS is the founder and president of The Urban Alternative, a national ministry dedicated to restoring hope in personal lives, families, churches, and communities. Dr. Evans also serves as senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. He is a bestselling author of numerous books, and his radio program, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, is heard on more than 500 stations every day. --From the Back Cover --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

The political books are coming out faster than most people can read them and most are along party lines or have a political agenda. Dr. Tony Evans has written a book, "How Should Christians Vote" which is dedicated to answering this very question. It does not matter what your political affiliation is if you consider yourself a believer in the word of God.
This is an important book written at a very important time; it explains why Christians cannot put their faith to the side when choosing political candidates. By sharing bible verses that present biblical principles in relation to such topics as abortion, health care and welfare the reader is given the tools to make the best possible decision when he goes to the voting booth. By explaining the four foundational forms of government (individual, family, church and then civil government) the reader can see how politicians can be a distraction to ones relationship with God.
I found this book, as all of Dr. Evans messages, to be informative, easy to read and understand and timely. It took me a day to read. I do not believe that a Christian, Democrat or Republican would find this book offensive in anyway though if you are a firm believer in separating your faith from your politics you may find this book difficult to digest.
I recommend this book to all Christians on all sides of the political aisle.
I received a complimentary ebook in exchange for a fair review.

Dr. Evans presents a good perspective on voting based on what the bible says rather than what the people say. We are all flawed, and as such our perspective on voting tends to be flawed as well. We vote based on the colour of our skin, area we live, culture we grew up in, and sadly who we (or our family) have traditionally voted for. Dr. Evans breaks down voting based on a biblical perspective relating to God's rule rather than that of Man. God has established a set of rules that every nation, even my home and Native land, should abide by the Bible. Evans' does a great job of showing that God isn't a democrat or republican, God didn't come to join a party but to take over. And it is the headship of a nation under God that is able to receive the full blessing from God. I don't believe that America is a "chosen" nation by any means, however a nation who is deeply rooted in seeking the will of their neighbour rather than themselves will see the fruit of that choice. I believe the West has lost it's neighbour, and Dr. Evans' does a good job of pointing the believer back to the Bible as the source of how Christians should vote. Our vote should be based on seeking the benefit of our neighbour's, strengthening families, and voting based on those principles rather than cultural norms. I vote that this book is worth the read.

This book takes the issue of voting and relates it to principles found in the Bible. You may not agree with all that Dr. Tony Evans says but he does well at backing up his ideas with scripture.

Who to vote for? What do you use as guidelines when making that decision? Whether it is for a local group or for you state Senator, each vote is important because you are putting the person in place that will help make the rules you will have to live by. Do you vote on personality or principle?

When reading this book be sure to read the scriptures for yourself and form you own opinions of Dr. Evans ideas. As a Christian you probably have certain principles you believe and do your best to adhere to. When you vote you are to remember those personal principles and vote for the candidate that complies with them the best.

I gave this book 4/5 stars.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

You can't really tell how Dr. Evans would vote after reading his book. I quickly decided to read his book because as a conservative Christian, I have heard him speak several times and believe that he is a true man of God.

I am Caucasian and as such, cannot relate to Dr. Evans on a race basis, but as one who holds very similar Biblical beliefs, I believe that I relate to him quite closely in using a Biblical approach to selecting candidates and issues based on where I believe God is leading me. This is the strongest point, I believe, of the book. We should use Biblical principles in all aspects of our lives including who and what we should vote for.

I believe that all of the issues that he brings up in the book including abortion and discrimination should be addressed with Biblical principles in mind. My family and I try to base our life's decisions on our understanding of God's will for our lives and the lives of those around us. I don't believe that we Christians always do the right thing in God's eyes and often suffer for it.

Dr. Evans makes a very good argument for the Biblical basis of a pro-life position. The very basis of liberty and the pursuit of happiness is life itself and if we allow the taking of an innocent pre-born life, the baby has no chance of any justice or liberty.

Where I part ways somewhat with Dr. Evans is when he makes the case for prioritizing our goals toward justice. While he doesn't say it specifically, he implies that those who suffer injustice in the form of discrimination may choose to prioritize discrimination ahead of pro-life beliefs.

I disagree with this concept.
