The apostle Paul reminds us to pray for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. Leith Anderson and Galen Carey offer a practical reminder that as believers, we have the privilege of letting the timeless truths of Scripture guide our decisions as we select those leaders and vote on the issues.
Biblically informed voting among followers of Jesus is far too rare today. Faith in the Voting Booth by Anderson and Carey provides a valuable resource for anyone who wants to cast their vote in a manner consistent with Scripture. Carefully consider its contents and then prayerfully cast your vote.
As those who are charged to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, Christians have both a moral and spiritual imperative to vote. Part of influencing the flavor, feeling, look, and tone of our nation and indeed our world is accomplished through the prayerful and thoughtful casting of ballots at our local voting booths. It is with this in mind that Leith Anderson and Galen Carey's book, Faith in the Voting Booth, is such a timely work. From the very practical matter of registering to vote to the provision of a biblical framework through which to analyze some of the hot button issues of our day, they offer a very helpful tool for any Christian who desires to honor his/her dual citizenship at the voting booth.
The right book for a pivotal moment. Leith Anderson and Galen Carey have done a great service with this thoughtful, articulate guide. Combining religion and politics can be explosive, but Anderson and Carey offer wisdom and leadership. They are an example of how Christian faith should engage political action.
The most comprehensive, thoughtful, and researched book ever written on living out our faith as we vote. This is NOT just some simplistic Voters Guide. This falls in the category of Discipleship as a witness for Christ. The reading is compelling and rich in both biblical and historical narratives that impact our thinking both domestically and globally now and in the future. The course of history could be changed. Take the challenge!
