The Scandal of Evangelical Politics: Why Are Christians Missing the Chance to Really Change the World? : "Christian political activity today is a disaster." So begins Ron Sider's analysis of contemporary evangelical political engagement. Christians have failed along all points of the political spectrum to subject their inherited political perspectives to the lordship of Christ via thoughtful, biblical critique. The result is infighting, lack of effective political influence, and worst of all, harm to our gospel witness. Evangelicals have the opportunity to promote the well-being of all through a uniquely Christian political vision. Combining biblical principles with societal analysis, Sider helps develop an irenic approach for doing politics in a wise, biblically grounded way that honors Christ and acknowledges his lordship over all areas of life.
