Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thoughtful consideration  Dec 13, 2001
Bandow clearly does believe there is a biblical view of politics, but he recognizes the complexity of applying Biblical principles to the modern state. For example, there is no doubt the Bible calls for assistance for the poor, but there is no explicit biblical statement about whether this should be solely a matter of private charity or also a matter of state assistance. Bandow sets forth several criteria for applying Scripture to the modern state, but also offers biblical criteria for Christians to think on particular issues when there is no explicit biblical principle. The book is a little dated now published in 1988), but still worthy of consideration.
 
Skip This Book ... And Vote for a Good Christian Politician  May 28, 2000
Caveat Emptor!

Considering Bandow's political views, the book could have been much shorter. Essentially, Bandow claims there really isn't a biblical view of politics.

If you are really interested in an explicitly Biblical book on politics, try George Grant's "The Changing of the Guard" or his "The Patriot's Handbook".
