—Brethren in Christ History and Life
“If I were to pick one book on politics for educated lay readers, this would be it. Sider offers a faithful methodology, starting with the biblical narrative as it shapes our worldview and public philosophy, to a coherent view of the state, to an examination of the pertinent biblical texts, to a judicious study of various sides of the contemporary issues. Biblical, gracious, balanced, this is a fine example of the way evangelical thoughtfulness can make a contribution to our civic lives.”
—Byron Borger, Hearts & Minds BookNotes blog
Evangelicals today probably have more political influence in the United States than at any time in the last century–but they might not be certain what to do with it. It has been difficult to develop a unified voice on pressing issues such as social justice and moral renewal.
Bestselling author and theologian Ron Sider offers a biblically grounded, factually rooted, Christian approach to politics that cuts across ideological divides. Shaped by a careful study of society, this book will guide readers into more thoughtful and effective political activity.
Practical, balanced, and nonpartisan, this book will be a welcome resource during the 2012 presidential race. It is a revised version of what was previously published as The Scandal of Evangelical Politics and includes a new introduction and revisions throughout.
Ronald J. Sider (PhD, Yale University) is the founder and president emeritus of Evangelicals for Social Action and distinguished professor of theology, holistic ministry, and public policy at Palmer Theological Seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. He is the author of numerous books, including the bestselling Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger and The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience.
