How Would Jesus Vote? New Book Looks at Evangelical Faith and Politics

Date: October 7, 2011

 

Can a Democrat be a Christian? Should the government care for the sick? Do legalized abortions increase the number of abortions? These are just some of the issues Lisa Sharon Harper and D.C. Innes undertake in this new book from Russell Media.

Harper, Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners, and Innes, Associate Professor of Politics at The King's College, offer mostly different responses, but do agree that these are the type of conversations Christians should be having if they already are not.

 

Their conversation, stemming from different world views, opens a field for Christians to discuss political issues and their relevance to Scripture openly.
