God and Government
What, according to Christian thought, is the proper function of government? That is the key question this lively volume aims to address. It does not tell readers what to do, still less who to vote for. Rather, it seeks to equip us to think through what we in our roles as ‘political Christians’(that is, Christians employed, engaged or simply interested in politics) should be attempting to achieve.
