Description

This volume illumines the discussion being carried on between the religious right with its concern for moral responsibility in politics and the issue-oriented activists who are concerned with how Christians in America address human-rights and hunger issues. By bringing together both Christian scholars and activists from nearly all points of the political continuum, this book offers a rare glimpse into the reality of Christian diversity on the political task. The media often suggests a monist interpretation of 'Christian politics.' This book shows both the vitality and plurality of Christian politics in America. The book covers the historical background, activist perspectives, organizational structures, and participant characteristics with essays by Frank Roberts, David O'Brien, Ruth Tucker, James Reichley, Delton Franz, Betty Coats, Lucille Taylor, Bruce Buursma, Robert Zwier, Allen Hertzke, James Guth, Lyman Kellstedt, Corwin Smidt, Stephen Monsma and concludes with a suggestion of a new direction by James Skillen of the Association for Public Justice.
