Product description

"My kingdom is not of this world." Followers of Jesus have been struggling to understand these words ever since he first uttered them often in sharply contradictory ways. Today the inescapably political nature of Christian witness is widely recognized. But what is the shape of this witness? What should Christian political engagement look like today? The twelve essays in this volume, originally presented at the 2013 Wheaton Theology Conference, present biblical, historical and theological proposals for thinking responsibly about the intersection of church and state in the contemporary cultural situation. Prophetic and pastoral, this book offers a fresh look at a crucial and contested dimension of the Christian life. Contributors include: Stanley Hauerwas Mark Noll Scot McKnight Timothy G. Gombis George Kalantzis Jana Marguerite Bennett William T. Cavanaugh Peter J. Leithart Daniel M. Bell Jr. Jennifer M. McBride David P. Gushee Bishop David Gitari "

Review quote

"The long-standing partnership between InterVarsity Press and the annual Wheaton College Theology Conference continues to produce very fine fruit indeed, of which this volume of wide-ranging essays in political theology is another fine example. Readers will benefit greatly from being expertly led by historians, theologians and ethicists to reflect more deeply and critically on abiding questions of Christian political thinking as well as many pressing issues of our present moment. This is a welcome contribution to a very lively field of theological endeavor."--Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen
