It is one of our favorite questions: Is God a Republican or a Democrat?
"Many, if not most, Christians begin with the wrong question of who they should vote for rather than the more important question of how they should vote. Asking the correct question is fundamental to knowing how to arrive at the correct answer."
Scriptural principles exist for both our personal and our political quandaries. We should be willing to dig deep to find them and move away from voting based on tradition or mere preferences.
Dr. Tony Evans takes on foundational questions of a Christian approach to politics, like:
- What does the Bible say about the role and responsibilities of government?
- How can we be salt and light when our political systems fail us?
- Should we submit to candidates we didnt vote for?
- What if we dont know whom to choose, or worsewhat if there is no good choice?
Evans wont pressure you to check this box or that, but he will equip you with solid biblical principles that will challenge you to vote with a "kingdom perspective"informed, compassionate, and aware of Who is really in charge.

IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Need some help with voting?June 13, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book takes the issue of voting and relates it to principles found in the Bible. You may not agree with all that Dr. Tony Evans says but he does well at backing up his ideas with scripture.
Who to vote for? What do you use as guidelines when making that decision? Whether it is for a local group or for you state Senator, each vote is important because you are putting the person in place that will help make the rules you will have to live by. Do you vote on personality or principle?
When reading this book be sure to read the scriptures for yourself and form you own opinions of Dr. Evans ideas. As a Christian you probably have certain principles you believe and do your best to adhere to. When you vote you are to remember those personal principles and vote for the candidate that complies with them the best.
I gave this book 4/5 stars.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
