Son and Father – Andrew David Naselli and Charles Naselli – team up here to overview and review the following three recent publications on politics from evangelicals:
Wayne Grudem, Politics – According to the Bible: A Comprehensive Resource for Understanding Modern Political Issues in Light of Scripture (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2010), 619pp., ISBN 9780310330295
Carl R. Trueman, Republocrat: Confessions of a Liberal Conservative (Phillipsburg: P&R Publishing, 2010), xxvii + 110pp., ISBN 9781596381834
Michael Gerson and Peter Wehner, City of Man: Religion and Politics in a New Era, Cultural Renewal (Chicago: Moody, 2010), 140pp., ISBN 9780802458575
Although the books differ in several ways, they conclude that ‘they all encourage Christians to interact with politics in a way that brings glory to God as salt and light in the world. Each acknowledges that theology should drive political beliefs, not vice versa, and that the working out of those political beliefs will vary according to circumstances’.
