Free (Kindle/XtianBk/Nook) Hijacked: Responding to Partisan Church.. [Faith Politics]
Hijacked: Responding to the Partisan Church Divide by Michael B. Slaughter & Charles E. Gutenson with Robert P. Jones is an examination and commentary on exactly what it says in the title, free courtesy of Christian publisher Abingdon Press.
Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians and in the UK) and Christian Book (available worldwide). May or may not show up at B&N. I think the last batch of Abingdon multi-store freebies failed to drop there.
The last 30 years have seen the political discourse within our country grow more rancorous and increasingly uncivil. During the same period, there has been a growing tendency to conflate one's theological commitments with one's political ideology. As a consequence, partisan politics has infiltrated our churches and political commitments are creating unnecessary divisions.
Perhaps of most concern, these trends generally tend to obscure the properly holistic nature of the Gospel of Christ and turn people off to Christianity altogether. Too often, it often seems politics trumps theology. Sadly, this leads to division, where decisions on church direction, and even the content of teaching, gets determined more based on partisan politics than on sound biblical and theological factors.
Hijacked explores this phenomenon, offers analysis, and proposes a way forward.
