Joshua Wester encourages young adults to view politics through the lens of their Christian faith, and to test their beliefs against the Bible.
People say that religion and politics shouldn’t mix, but God has a lot to say about how we live together. Politics touches many things in our lives, and so, as Christians, we should examine our political beliefs in the light of what God says.
Joshua Wester tackles crucial topics that young adults should be thinking about as they think about how they engage with the political process and get involved in conversations about politics. The Bible calls us to be good citizens who love God and love our neighbour – how does that affect how we vote?
An invaluable guide for those seeking to engage with the political process.
