Is it possible to be passionate about the gospel and care deeply about politics? Can we engage in politics responsibly, confidently, graciously—even Christianly?
When it comes to politics, Christians today seem lost and confused. Many Christians desire to relate their faith to politics but simply don’t know how. This book exists to equip the reader to apply Christianity to politics with both grace and truth, with both boldness and humility.
Politics is not an evil arena to be avoided. Neither is it our only avenue for impacting society. The reality is much more complex and, oddly enough, much more promising.

"Years of over-dependence on political activism has left most Christians timid to engage in the political process. Now, more than ever, we need a positive, proactive vision for how to live out the gospel to the public sqaure. Ashford and Pappalardo give us a masterfully constructed blueprint for doing so."
J.D. Greear, pastor of The Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, and author of Gaining by Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send
"During my time as an evangelical pastor, I urged my congregation to take their faith seriously and to live lives of moral clarity. Then, during the more than a decade I spent as Governor of Arkansas, my leadership aim was the same - to provide moral clariy, characer, and conviction. This impressive book invited Christians to approach politics with both courage and compassion, in the hope that we can once again call ourselves one nation, under God. Most importantly, it offers something that's in short supply in politics these days - hope"
Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, Baptist pastor, best-selling author, candidate for U.S. President
