Christians are a large and influential voting block today. But as each governmental election approaches, an increasing polarity occurs within those claiming the Christian faith. This comes as a result of party-voting rather than voting according to Biblical mandates and authority. To refocus correctly, Dr. Tony Evans goes back to the basics and teaches about how God established government as a divine institution whose tasks include promoting the well-being of those within its realm and protection from evil.
Scripture trumps all political alliances, making the voting decision a critical opportunity for Christians to promote God's Word and His values through whom they elect. In the face of increasing emotions, the Christians representing the values of God's kingdom should communicate His truths in a manner reflective of the King - in a gracious and strategic way.
Dr. Evans also looks at the necessary qualities in a good candidate, which include intellect, education, competency, skill, and spiritual beliefs; whether certain issues are non-negotiables; and how a responsible citizen is to research a candidates' position in order to evaluate it against God's Word.

Until reading/listening to this it was unclear to me how and why Christians ought to vote and if we should even engage in the process if you don't fully agree with either side. This is a book that I think every Christian should read/listen to. If we all as a body and representatives of God's kingdom here on earth would put into practice what Dr Evans lays out scripturaly as what we as Christians must do, I believe it could change the direction of our nation from fear and uncertainty to one of destiny and purpose.
Enjoy listening to book as read by Mirron Willis. Love the fact that it was scripture based and that voting should not be taken lightly, it's a Godly institution.
Simplicity. Voting is not a black/white issue, it should be made after serious praying and communing with God.
Easy listening voice.
