My only quibble with this brief but deceptively profound read is the typos. I counted about three of them, and they were prominent enough to be distracting. Hopefully this issue gets ironed out soon, because the content of this book is worthwhile to every Christian who struggles not only with who to vote for, but also how to engage a culture that seems increasingly ambivalent towards traditional Christianity. It's the perfect answer to a voting guide which seeks to lead voters to a specific answer. I highly recommend this to my conservative Christian friends. Endure the typos: you won't regret it.
Understandably, many choose reject the name at election time, if they truly carried it before, because those that pretend to carry the name wave it as a banner of hate for the victory of their own image. There are small daily decisions that require God’s courage. For those who want to get involved on a higher level, isn’t it possible to let the banner be persistent love and let your actions speak? Daniel, while committed to Israel’s God, did tell the king that Babylon must follow his God. His actions and character did much of the speaking.
The Voting Booth uses allegorical story-telling akin to Pilgrim's Progress to show how a thinking Christian might interact with 3 opposing attitudes (in the form of spirits) toward culture. The spirit of Exodus tells Christian to flee in order to save himself. The spirit of Exile encourages him to engage and change the culture through positions of power in order to save the culture and thus himself. However, the spirit of Incarnation shows Christian a path not predicated on fear, but love...not out of reaction to a danger, but out of choice.
I particularly liked that this was a quick read, as I gobbled it up in about an hour. The story-telling script-style writing was easy to read and chunked the topics nicely. In the end, I wasn't frustrated that I didn't have a clear answer, though some might be. I prefer to learn how to think, and this was the ticket.
This book is quite relevant for a Christian culture that is going in two directions: either to shelter or to war. Skye reveals that neither way is the answer, and that there is a far better and more productive alternative that is way more biblically based than the other options.
This book is for Christians who are frightened by the culture, those who are fighting the culture, and those who wish to flourish the culture.
Most difficult road to take, but the road Jesus choose and the true
Path He wants each of us to follow, too! Who did you choose to vote for?; my neighbor, that's who! What a blessing and thank you Jesus for showing us the new way to live in the world since you have now come!
