One will learn more about the meaning and purpose of government, the process of American politics, the contemporary dynamics of religion and politics, and the actual message of the Bible in this book than in any other on the market. Marshall is informed, astute, critical, wise, and open about his own beliefs all at the same time.--James W. Skillen, executive director, The Center for Public Justice
Some truths are so blindingly obvious that many of us are blinded to them. One such truth is that our constitutional order is on the side of the vigorous public engagement of the many truths by which the American people live, including those truths often excluded because they are categorized as 'religious.' Paul Marshall's argument invites us to the high adventure of renewing the political task envisioned by the Founders.--Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, editor-in-chief, First Things
Paul Marshall writes with intelligence, compassion, and practicality. He sets a high standard.--Michael Novak, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, 1994 Templeton laureate --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

We live in a very frustrating time: (1) It is a time of ever-increasing polarization in the political realm - left and right demonize each other, and Christians are caught up in the hateful rhetoric. (2) A frustrating amount of Christians are misinformed about Christian political theory by pop Christian media sources. (3) Politicians seek to manipulate evangelicals with inflamed rhetoric in order to win our votes.
Marshall cuts through it all with clarity and well-researched insights of what Christians should consider when thinking about policy issues in America.
