An evangelical call to civic responsibility
While evangelicals are becoming an increasingly viable force in American public life, too often their political agendas have lacked clarity, consistency, and Christlikeness. Catholicism has a rich history of papal reflections and directions, and Protestantism has its own traditions from which to draw, but evangelicals lack responsible approaches to their own earthly citizenship. The result has been an ineffective role in shaping civic debate.
Toward an Evangelical Public Policy will help conscientious Christians carefully develop a biblical framework that guides their political involvement. The editors show how to combine political philosophy with Scripture, tradition, and sophisticated study of the contemporary mindset by drawing together contributions from:
Nigel M. de S. Cameron
Paul de Vries
John C. Green
David P. Gushee
Kristin E. Heyer
Dennis P. Hollinger
Raymond R. Roberts
R. Scott Rodin
Ronald J. Sider
Max L. Stackhouse
Glenn T. Stanton
Glen H. Stassen
Challenging evangelicals to think more deeply about their political involvement, this book will help believers make the most of a historic opportunity to shape a better world.
Ronald J. Sider is president of Evangelicals for Social Action.
Diane Knippers is president of the Institute for Religion and Democracy
