  1. This is a good quick worthwhile read This thoughtful approach to the subject of Christians and politics offers some refreshing ideas as to the importance of taking a path of grace and faith when dealing with political matters It inspired me to take a hard look at my own perceptions, interactions, and expectations when it comes to politics.


  2. This book offers excellent observations and five thought provoking conclusions Philip Yancey writes such relevant books, and I always come away challenged to think deeply and to be brutally honest with myself This book carries a hefty punch, even with a low page count I really liked it.


  3. The main theme if this book is summarized in this quotation When the church accepts as its main goal the reform of the broader culture, we risk obscuring the gospel of grace and becoming one power broker Nietzsche warned Beware lest in fighting the dragon you become the dragon Evangelicalism has preoccupied itself with fighting culture wars and has forgotten that the message of Christ is grace and love.


  4. Are we concentrating on the kingdom of this world than on the kingdom that is not of this world What practically defines the evangelical church today is an emphasis on two issues that Jesus did not even mention How will we feel if historians of the future look back on the evangelical church of our era and declare, They fought bravely on the moral fronts of abortion and homosexual rights, while at the same time reporting that we did little to fulfill the Great Commission, and we did little to sp [...]


  5. A Clarifying BookI liked the short length of the book I think his use of scripture is very skillful If you struggle between loving your neighbor and justice for all this book is for you If you believe that God is love and Jesus came with grace and truth this book is for you.


  6. Always love Philip Yancey, and he has even handed, compassionate, and insightful words to share on that tangly topic of politics and America Egads I love it that he isn t a right winger , but still has an orthodox Christian viewpoint This one I want to re read for sure.



  7. The two largest controversies debated in our legal judicial system today deals with the Supreme Court striking down the Texas abortion clinic regulation on June 26, 2016, and the Supreme Court Legalizing Gay Marriage Nationwide June 26, 2015 What does Jesus say about both topics Very little.Homosexuality was prevalent in Jesus day as philosophers had sexual relations with young boys Young girls, however, were not valued and were often discarded at birth on the side of the road before modern abo [...]


  8. Restored my faithPhilip Yancey hit on all the issues I have with organized religion today I may have found a way back.


  9. This isn t a very long book, but it is a very relevant book I purchased it after becoming uneasy at some of the political statements being made in the pulpit of our Methodist church in England Our Bible study group even had a session on politics and the church and we were split down the middle over whether one should spill into the other I wish I had this book when we had that Bible study Even though it is mainly American focused, it does makes very good points about what the church is good at a [...]


  10. Every Christian Should Read This Book Before Their Next Facebook Political Post A great perspective on the role of a Christian in regards to politics It clarified my beliefs and gave me some things to think about.


  11. All Christians should read this book.I ve always enjoyed Philip Yancey s books and this one did not disappoint It s a call to Christians to act Christ like We will win souls and have a bigger impact on our country if we show grace.


  12. Still Applicable and Will Continue to Be SoI picked up Philip Yancey s book to re read it in the light of recent events in the process we have come to know as election politics Time and again I found the principles the author outlines as very applicable in evaluating current political discourse.His reference to an earlier election where a Catholic candidate whose eventual success was demonized as a path straight to Papal control of the United States brought back memories of the rhetoric As I rec [...]


  13. What is our role This is Yancey s question Is it to demand that our religious beliefs be made law for everyone in America, or are these beliefs to be demonstrated to the world Is the law of Christ leading us or is it commanding us to force others A very apt discussion considering the political climate of today


  14. Enjoyable quick read Enjoyable quick read It doesn t address voting but it does go into the history of Christians and how they impacted various governments for the better but mostly for the worse.


  15. Helpful and interesting look at Christians and Politics always a question that arises when we are concerned about the state of the world and our own country and what our involvement should be.


  16. Short book, but brought up some interesting things to consider when thinking about how church and state should do interact.
