Item Description...
John H. Redekop's biblically focused consideration of church-state relations weighs the challenges of political involvement for Christians. Drawing on decades of writing about public policy issues in Canada and the United States, Redekop affirms politics as an appropriated arena of Christian service and government as an institution established by and accountable to God.

Publishers Description
What does God require of governments? When, why and how should Christians become involved in politics? Can morality be legislated? Is civil disobedience biblical? Should Christians pay war taxes? These are some of the questions that John H. Redekop examines in light of what he calls "Anabaptist realism." In the twelve short chapters of Politics Under God, he considers such church-state relations from biblical, theological and historically Anabaptist perspectives before delving into the challenges of political involvement for Christians and secular periodicals in Canada and the United States. Redekop affirms politics as an appropriate arena of Christian service to the extent permitted by Christian discipleship. Approaching government as an institution established by and accountable to God, Redekop offers a clear understanding of the significance of politics for Christians. 226 Pages.

A thoughtful examination of how Christians can stay true to their faith while becoming involved in government  Aug 6, 2007
Former president of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada John H. Redekop presents Politics Under God, an examination of church-state relations that explores the challenges Christians face when confronting the possibility of political involvement. Putting forth the commitment that politics is a just environment in which to apply Christian faith and service, Politics Under God proposes that governments should be held accountable to God as well as to secular principles such as justice and fiscal responsibility. Chapters discuss overlapping agendas of church and government, and questions such as "Can morality be legislated?", "Is Christianity Left, Right or Center?", or "How should Christians pray for politicians and governments?". A thoughtful examination of how Christians can stay true to their faith while becoming involved in government, without putting institutions of faith at risk to conflict of interest.
