Product Description

We are political beings and our lives are shaped by political institutions. Being a good citizen involves understanding these political institutions and how they can be used to promote the common good. Christians further believe these institutions are integral to God's created order, intended by God to promote justice and help people flourish. Christians thus have good reason to be informed about political science as they seek to be ambassadors for Christ in a diverse society. Introduction to Political Science: A Christian Perspective is an accessible guide to the study of politics. Written for students who may not have any prior knowledge about political life, this textbook provides a nonpartisan introduction to the key concepts, institutions, and policies that shape politics today. Christians are called to engage in political action in order to advance public justice, even though full peace and justice is ultimately the work of God alone.

  • Political System
