5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource - long overdue., 8 Feb. 2010
This review is from: God and Government (Paperback)
God and Government is an excellent review of the different perspectives of the Christian purposes of government - and something that we could have done with being published twenty years ago.

Although it's widely acknowledged that Christianity is a huge influence on the nature of government, this publication provides a great insight into this important subject area. With some important distinctions made between politics, government and the state, the recurring biblical principles explored in the book are for the development of `political wisdom' (a term that needs urgent revitalisation in our public discourse). Four general principles emerge. First, the government is accountable to God: second, that governments role is limited; third, that government exists for the common good; and fourth, that the task of government is just judgement. Great stuff.

Spencer and Chaplin have produced a seminal text for Christians interested in understanding and influencing the shape and nature government - which should be all Christians!
