Daniel Clark
This is a concise and refreshingly clear-minded book on the Christian’s role in government. He argues for “significant Christian influence” saying, “This kind of ‘significant Christian influence’ on government is not (1) compulsion, it is not (2) silence, it is not (3) withdrawal from government, it is not (4) doing evangelism only, and it is not (5) trusting the government for salvation.

I was reading this thinking something was just a little bit off; then a footnote told me that Grudem worked on the ESV, BINGO, and it all made sense, and things started lining up, especially the chapter that only seemed to be written to bash Greg Boyd!?

This was a good excerpt from the larger publication by Grudem. It isn't meant to be all-inclusive, but just some introductory material. Good read, though.
Mark A Powell
Few issues garner as much heated debate as politics and religion, especially when the two are combined. Tackling those elephants in the room is Grudem who provides a Biblical framework for building answers to these lingering questions. This short booklet is an excerpt from Grudem’s much longer work, Politics, so it is not designed to be exhaustive Even so, this sample is a much-needed and thought-provoking examination of the Christian’s relationship with and responsibility to government.
Lee Button

Bryan Beauchamp
I did not agree with Mr. Grudem's conclusions, but this short book was well written, and I enjoyed his writing style.
