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 "show more
