The Weekly Hit List: July 12, 2013

Just Politics by Ronald J. Sider was reviewed by Emmanuel Octubre for Revival Magazine.

Ronald Sider asks: ‘How do we acquire the wisdom to act in politics in a way that truly reflects Christ? How do we move from a commitment to Jesus Christ and biblical authority to concentrate political decisions that lead us to support or oppose specific laws and candidates? Is there an approach, a method, a frame work that will help us do that?’

“Ronald Sider’s Just Politics: A Guide for Christian Engagement discusses today’s pertinent political issues such as abortion, marriage, human rights and war; his book is unique because it isn’t polemical. Instead, he responds by creating a balanced methodology rooted in biblical foundations. His systematic approach raises volume to a voice that is rarely heard when discussing these difficult topics— the voice of an impartial christian.”
