Item Description...
Overview
Beyond Left and Right offers a complete guide to the inner workings of American politics, equipping readers to think intelligently and to actively engage politics with their faith.

Publishers Description
The 2008 U.S. presidential election is already heating up, fueled by debates about religion and politics, and dividing people of faith. Many Christians want to engage in politics but feel underequipped and overwhelmed. Wheaton College political scientist Amy E. Black believes Christians must become politically educated, not stereotyped and polarized. Beyond Left and Right offers a complete guide to the inner workings of American politics, equipping readers to think intelligently and to actively engage politics with their faith. Black is intentionally unbiased and avoids fleeting hot-button issues, ensuring the staying power of Beyond Left and Right, even after the election dust settles. Recommended for Christians and students interested in faith and politics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A clear, concise, accessible, and balanced Christian introduction to American politics  Jan 9, 2010
I teach political science at a small Christian college, and have incorporated this text into my Introduction to American Government course. Several of my students noted that this book was a great way not only of better understanding how Christians should approach American politics but also of solidifying and clarifying their understanding of the subject matter itself. In an era of political polarization, this book does a great job of providing a balanced foundation for further discussion. (If you're looking for a book to study in a small group or an adult Sunday School class, you should seriously consider this one.)
 
Good read, but!!!  Aug 26, 2009
This book is a good read, but it seems to me that it is a bit biased! The author seems to make a point that Christians should be more "left leaning." You must read this book with an open mind. If you are a Christian and read the part where the author states that "America is not a Christian nation," do not let it make you mad just continue to read on and find out why she states that.
 
Very helpful resource  Nov 15, 2008
I found this book to be a very helpful tool for Christians to engage thoughtfully and biblically in our American political system. Amy Black provides an informed perspective that is intentionally non-partisan and biblically informed.
 
Informative, accessible study guide  Oct 4, 2008
Book was used as a study guide in church school class of 30 adults. Sections on history and organization of government are enlivened with interesting examples. Guidance to Christians emphasizes need for mutual respect and understanding in dealing with different opinions. Black's writing style, level of detail, and use of sidebars make the book quite readable as well as thought-provoking.
 
perceptive and fact-based  Feb 24, 2008
Well written and well reasoned Christian approach to political divisiveness. No easy answers, but good principles for what and when to compromise or hold steady.
