"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 "show more

Review quote

"Wheaton College professors Kalantzis and Lee pose a provocative question: 'Are Christians today anything more than an interest group?' In light of a 2013 Pew report showing the U.S. on the verge of becoming a minority Protestant country, twelve prominent theologians respond. From the salty Stanley Hauerwas to the precise Mark Noll, each gnaws on an ancient bone: since the outlawed Jesus Movement became legitimate under Constantine, what are we to make of Christians and politics?"--Publishers Weekly, March 10, 2014show more
