A variety of perspectives exist within the Christian community when it comes to political issues and political involvement. This comprehensive and readable book presents a political philosophy from the perspective that the Gospel pertains to all of life so Christians should be involved in political issues. In brief, this is an analysis of conservative and liberal plans to do good for the nation, evaluated in light of the Bible and common sense. In this ground-breaking book, recognized evangelical Bible professor Wayne Grudem rejects five mistaken views about Christian influence on politics: (1) "compel religion," (2) "exclude religion," (3) "all government is demonic," (4) "do evangel-ism, not politics," and (5) "do politics, not evangelism." He proposes a better alternative: (6) "significant Christian influence on government." Then he explains the Bible's teachings about the purpose of civil government and the characteristics of good or bad government. Does the Bible support some form of democracy? Should judges and the courts hold the ultimate power in a nation? With respect to specific political issues, Grudem argues that most people's political views depend on deep-seated assumptions about several basic moral and even theological questions, such as whether God exists, whether absolute moral standards can be known, whether there is good and evil in each person's heart, whether people should be accountable for their good and bad choices, whether property should belong to individuals or to society, and whether the purpose of the earth's resources is to bring benefit to mankind. After addressing these foundational questions, Grudem provides a thoughtful, carefully-reasoned analysis of over fifty specific issues dealing with the protection of life, marriage, the family and children, economic issues and taxation, the environment, national defense, relationships to other nations, freedom of speech and religion, quotas, and special interests. He makes frequent application to the current policies of the Democratic and Republican parties in the United States, but the principles discussed here are relevant for any nation.… (mer)

Don't waste your time reading my thoughts. Order this book immediately and read it as quickly as possible! I don't say this often or lightly: every American Christian should read this book! ( )

There are so few books on the Christian apologetic shelf these days that are comprehensive in one subject; there is absolutely nothing wrong with an overall book that covers the major topics in the world of Christian apologetics (or any academic field of study); but there is merit to the concept of concentrating on one topic and giving it %110. Politics is a tricky subject however Dr. Wayne Grudem has respectfully and in a Biblically accurate way made a thought provoking case for a non-theocratic, Godly government. Politics - According to the Bible... is a comprehensive look into political issues that are relativent for today and he presents them from a logical and Biblical worldview; to conclude it is a must read for the inquiring mind and for those 'minds' who care about a livable life, that is a life of true freedom!

Grudem's easy to read style is very appreciated in this complex topic of Christians and politics. In the first chapter Grudem respectfully takes Greg Boyd to task for his pacifism and John MacArthur for his "evangelism not legislation" stance. He shows how Christians have always been the primary force behind stomping out the civil injustices such as slavery, abortion in ancient Rome and child sacrifice in Ireland. He effectively imagines what history would look like without Christians influencing policy.
