In a series of recent bestsellers, liberals and leftists hysterically charge that the right wants to impose a theocracy. David Klinghoffer agrees and boldly asks, What's so bad about theocracy? In this radically provocative book, he describes what a consistent biblical republicanism would look like.
Klinghoffer develops a modern political outlook based on biblical wisdom and law. He does this by looking at 20 current issues of top concern to a majority of Americans, ranging from divorce, gay marriage, and stem cell research to taxes, immigration, the war on terror, and the environment. In each case he presents a carefully reasoned position derived from both testaments of the Bible that tells us, in effect, how God would vote.
What about the separation of church and state and the protection of religious pluralism? Klinghoffer deals forthrightly with these liberal objections by arguing that as long as people are free to practice their own religion, there is nothing unconstitutional about a majority of Americans voting in a way that is consistent with their biblically oriented political views.
This bold and fearlessly provocative book should attract wide attention in the national media across the political spectrum.
