Free (nook/Kindle/Christianbook) Christians and the Common Good [DIY Faith Politics]
Christians and the Common Good: How Faith Intersects with Public Life by Charles Gutenson is part contemplation, part self-help guide to faith-based political involvement, free courtesy of Christian publisher Baker's Brazos Press imprint.
Currently free @ B&N and Amazon UK, likely to drop in the main store and may show up at Christian Book, but not for very long, as Baker's non-fic freebies are generally 1-day only.
Christians across the spectrum have soured on religious involvement in politics, tempted either to withdraw or to secularize their public engagement. Yet the kingdom of God is clearly concerned with justice and communal well-being. How can Christians be active in public life without getting mired down in political polarization and controversy?
For too long, the question of faith in public life has centered on what the Bible says about government. Charles Gutenson, a theologian respected by both evangelical and mainline Christians, argues that we should first ask how God intends for us to live together before considering the public policies and institutions that would best empower living together in that way. By concentrating on the nature of God, we can move past presuppositions regarding the role of government and engage in healthy discussions about how best to serve the common good. This lucidly written book includes a foreword by bestselling author Jim Wallis.
