Lon Fendall knows that Christianity is a call to citizenship in a way that few others do. Christ calls us to love one another. But when we look around at the frenzy of human activity, we wonder what values guide our endless search for wealth, fame and power. This collection of stories revives our hearts and reminds our minds that we can live the life of community to which we are called. We can live a life of active public service and Christian citizenship.
How does being a follower of Christ affect your relationship with government? What do Solomon, Joseph, Nehemiah, Gideon, and other biblical characters teach us about citizenship? Lon Fendall profiles contemporary people who illustrate what it means to be an active Christian citizen and he shares biblical models.
