Product Description

In this updated and revised version of A Public Faith (NavPress 2000), Drew helps Christians to develop practical biblical convictions about critical social and political issues, while also keeping the peace. Carefully distinguishing between moral principle and political strategy, Body Broken equips believers to build their activism upon a thoughtful and biblical foundation. This balanced approach will provide readers-Democrats, Republicans, or Independents-with solid scriptural tools for decision making. A sensitive and thorough treatise on true Christian citizenship and responsibility, Body Broken prepares Christians of all political perspectives to understand how they can practice servanthood, cooperation and integrity in today's public square.
Emphasizing the importance of unity in the church, despite differing views, Crew provides those who care deeply about their faith as well as the church's corporate calling in the world with an alternative to polarizing fear and hatred. He assists Christians in navigating their political differences without panic and resentment, teaching them to respond instead with love and understanding. With questions at the end of each chapter to help readers explore and apply these principles, Body Broken will train believers to actively engage with political issues while at the same time standing united as a church.

Publisher's Description

Can Christians Be Political Activists without Hating Each Other?

As the next presidential election comes into view, Americans are deciding where to stand on key issues. The church has often been as politically divided as the culture, but Charles Drew offers an alternative for people who care deeply about their faith, about Christian harmony, and about the church's calling in the world. In this updated and revised version of A Public Faith (NavPress 2000), Drew helps Christians develop practical biblical convictions about critical social and political issues. Distinguishing between moral principle and political strategy, Body Broken equips believers to maintain the unity of the church while building their political activism upon a thoughtful and biblical foundation. Drew helps Christians of all political persuasions understand how to practice servanthood, cooperation, and integrity in today's public square.
