Format: Kindle Edition
As someone who has long asserted there can be no splits between faith and politics, I found the first few chapters of Jesus Untangled difficult reading, for Keith Giles appears to be suggesting that Christians should absolute separate ourselves from political life and action. He comes close to this but eventually his deeper message sinks in: he's not advocating that Christians should retreat from the hard realities of living in a pagan empire, he’s not promoting non-involvement in programmes and protests for change. But rather he is addressing what Jesus himself always addressees: the question of what is in our heart - what is our deepest motivation for our actions in the world. Is it our desire for political influence or our desire to follow Christ? This is challenging at the deepest level - whether to a Christian ‘social activist’ or to anyone daring to vote or wave a flag whilst also claiming to be following Christ.

Being British I come at this material from a different perspective, which is that of belonging to a Church which is still structurally welded to the State (and which continues to studiously avoid any serious debates about disestablishment). But Keith Giles's revelations about the ineffectiveness of US politics to achieve the work of God's kingdom, bring UK parallels to mind (one recent example from the centre-left here: the absolute failure of the Tony Blair New Labour government in its stated intention to end child poverty).

This book shakes me into re-evaluating what I desire most: to entirely follow Jesus (a self-sacrificial path) or to align to secular political ways in the hope that’s being Christ-like enough. Its dualism is actually necessary: that is if you really believe the One who said, “You cannot serve two masters”.

I have just finished reading Keith's book, Jesus Untangled and I truly believe anyone who reads this and cannot see the plain simple truth, it's Jesus's way and His way only, no political government, system will ever help to achieve what Christ taught us in the sermon on the mount, it will never happen.
Does any political system teach you to bless those who persecute you, love your enemies, turn the other cheek, I think not.
This book has been truly liberating.
