Politics for Christians?

On this episode of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, host Hank Hanegraaff stresses the importance for Christians—and all U.S. citizens in general—to vote. Most citizens don’t know what liberal democracy is, and therefore what would justify a Christian contribution to a liberal democracy. Hank brings up the book Politics for Christians by Francis J. Beckwith, that he thinks is highly instructive in this regard. In the book, Beckwith states that a liberal democracy affords you the liberty to worship. It also protects you from a government that is unaccountable to the people. Recommended resource: Politics for Christians: Statecraft as Soulcraft by Francis Beckwith.

About The Author

Politics for Christians

Politics for Christians

Politics is concerned with citizenship and the administration of justice—how communities are formed and governed. The role of Christians in the political process is hotly contested, but as citizens, Francis Beckwith argues, Christians have a rich heritage of sophisticated thought, as well as a genuine responsibility, to contribute to the shaping of public policy. In particular, Beckwith addresses the contention that Christians, or indeed religious citizens of any faith, should set aside their beliefs before they enter the public square.

  • What role should religious citizens take in a liberal democracy?
  • What is the proper separation of church and state?
  • What place should be made for natural rights and the moral law within a secular state?

This cogent introduction to political thought surveys political science, politics and government while making the case for how statecraft may genuinely contribute to soulcraft. Politics for Christians is part of The Christian Worldview Integration Series.
