Product Description

Beyond electoral campaigns and government structures, the relationship between the political realm and Christianity has always involved the important questions of how we ought to live together, and how we should organize and govern our common life. Hines notes that politics-and the political choices we make-must be "guided by the considerations of national and global justice and peace and, for Christians, by the teachings of Jesus as interpreted by tradition.

Himes examines the relationship between Christianity and politics from the teachings the Old Testament and New Testament through the patristic and medieval eras and the age of Reform to the age of revolution, and through the twentieth century into the third millennium. He addresses questions of the role of the church in politics, responsible voting, concerns of globalization, and issues of human rights and war and peace.

Discussion questions and suggestions for further reading make Christianity and the Political Order a classroom friendly text for any study of the relationship between Christian faith and the political realm both past and present.
