Not written not by a journalist or politician but rather by a theology professor with a Ph.D. in New Testament studies, Voting asa Christian: The Economic and Foreign Policy Issues begins with the assumption that God intended the Bible to give guidance to every area of life---including how governments should function.
Derived from author Wayne Grudem's magisterial Politics---According to the Bible, this book highlights those economic and foreign-policy issues that have dominated political debate recently. Throughout, author Wayne Grudem supports political positions that would be called more 'conservative' than 'liberal.' However, 'it is important to understand that he sees these positions as flowing out of the Bible's teachings rather than being positions he held prior to, or independently of, those biblical teachings,' he writes. 'My primary purpose in the book is not to be liberally or conservative, or Democrat or Republican, but to explain a biblical worldview and a biblical perspective on issues of politics, law, and government.'
