      What makes Innes and Harper's project successful is that, rather than forcing a reader to sift through potentially dozens of books on both sides of the political aisle and from a myriad of theological views, they right away focus on practical and theological issues in today's policy debates and hit them on the head. Most spoken or written debates like this are "two ships passing at night" where the interloculors glide by each other with their arguments never really in conflict. Not so with Innes and Harper; their arguments smack into each other head-on--often with fireworks!--and fulfill the object of letting readers see what the Bible and reason have to say on political topics of the day. Will the book change minds? Probably not. But it gives a look into how two influential groups within Christendom think and interact. This book should stimulate discussion and critical thinking amoung evangelicals, non-evangelicals, and non-Christians alike. Anyone interested in Christian policy debates in America must read this book.
