God and Politics

Front Cover
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 2008 - Religion - 177 pages
God is not a Democrat or a Republican. Still he is interested in politics, as he is in every area of life. Roy Herron explains how Christians can participate in politics without compromising their core convictions. Herron draws on his experience as a pastor, lawyer, and state senator to describe what faithful politics looks like.

Excellent book for reading before the 2008 election. We used this book for our Sunday School Class and although it was very thought provoking, it wasn't as easy to teach from as other books we have studied. Read full review
