Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn about Christian ideas on politics? This book is for you.

Christian Body Politic is a book that tackles difficult questions regarding the Christian perspective on the relationship between Church and State. Leading Christian thinkers and activists discuss such questions as: Did Jesus support the Death Penalty? What role should the Church play in government? What does the Bible teach about governing authority's legitimacy? Is democracy the only Bible-approved government?

Professor Stephen Joel Garver has been teaching philosophy courses to students at La Salle University in Philadelphia, PA, for a long time, and Prof. Garver shares insightful thoughts on the concept of Jesus as King. What does it mean for our modern society?

Professor Cliff Bates, who teaches political science at the University of Warsaw in Poland, shares his insights on the concept of the state and Christian responses to it. Prof. Bates discusses the issue of the Holocaust as well.

Rev. David Kim, who is a major leader of an evangelical student campus movement, shares his wisdom on the idea of the City of God. If Christians are citizens of the City of God in Heaven, how does that identity relate to Christians' life on earth? Is there a relationship? Does it matter?

Rev. Lee Irons, who hosts a Christian think tank, The Upper Register, gives an informative account of the the current evangelical-reformed discussion on the relationship between Church and state and offers some of his own ideas.

The editor of the volume, Christian Kim, presents cogent arguments about Jesus Christ's attitudes about the death penalty.

Pretty Bad

The writing style of the book is extremely boring. Also, the narrator's voice is horrendously dull and boring. And that's coming from me, a guy that usually enjoys reading technical textbooks, philosophy, etc. Also, the content is boring. Lastly, the arguments logically suck. It was painful to finish the book, though I endured.
