Publisher's Summary

Too often, political questions are framed in impossible ways for the faithful Christian: We're forced to choose between social justice and biblical values, between supporting women and opposing abortion. As a result, it's easy for Christians to grow disillusioned with civic engagement or fall back into tribal extremes. This state of affairs has damaged Christian public witness and divided the church.

The authors of this book represent the AND Campaign, which exists to educate and organize Christians for faithful civic and cultural engagement. They insist that not only are we called to love our neighbors through the political process but also that doing so requires us to transcend the binary way the debates are usually framed. In simple, understandable language, they lay out the biblical case for political engagement and help Christians navigate the complex world of politics with integrity, from political messaging and the politics of race to protests, advocacy, and more.

When we understand our civic engagement as a way to obey Christ's call to love our neighbor, we see that it is possible to engage the political process with both love and truth - compassion and conviction.

Thought provoking.

I appreciated the heart and spirit that went into creating this book. It allowed me to search inwardly on what I need to change, how I can be an advocate and engage in the political world.

Good, but...

Narrator is difficult to listen to. Struggled to finish for that reason. The info is good, and book is well written.

For such a time as this...

Amazing, a book that truly answers the question of where a believer should engage and how in political conversations.

how is the headline both required and optional

The book helped me see where I have fallen short of being prepared to speak to others about different subjects. it let me know how much more I need to be prayerful and careful I should be about my conviction and compassion.

Such great content!

The content of this book is priceless, something that everyone should hear. I love the church politics podcast so it was great getting to read their book as well. Unfortunately the book is not read by them, and the voice was hard to tune into. I would recommend reading the book over listening to the audiobook because of the voice, or just listening to their podcast.

Simple but Profound

This book was simple and short, but profound in its truths and practical ways to live them out. This is THE book every Christian should begin with before engaging politically. It does not answer every little question, it’s not meant to. But it sets up a beautiful framework for how Christians should engage in American politics.

Fantastic

Perfect for our current cultural moment- should be required reading for all! The AND Campaign is exactly what I’ve been looking for as a Christ follower that still wants to be actively engaged in politics and the public square. Thank you!

Democracy is a verb

Democracy is a verb that requires compassion & conviction to love our neighbor, walk humbly, do justice, and to have mercy. May we have the courage to do so always.

A helpful political guide for Christians

The authors do a good job of bringing balance between often polarized political sides and give practical tips for Christians who want to become more politically active.
