Evangelicals everywhere are flooding into political activity, frequently without a carefully developed biblical framework or reliable socio-political analysis. As a result, evangelicals are often unnecessarily divided, inconsistent, and ineffective in their public engagement.Toward an Evangelical Public Policy is designed to guide conscientious evangelicals in their ongoing national political involvement. It serves to deepen evangelicals' understanding of political involvement and unify and strengthen the evangelical presence in politics.Contributors to this volume include David Gushee, Max Stackhouse, Paul Marshall, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and Richard Cizik.
