God and Government, ed. Nick Spencer and Jonathan Chaplin
1st October 2009
'God and Government offers invaluable resources for what is now a sharply urgent task thinking through the ethical and spiritual foundations of our democracy.' from the foreword by Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury. What, according to Christian thought, is the proper function of government?
That is the key question this lively volume aims to address. It does not tell readers what to do, still less who to vote for. Rather, it seeks to equip us to think through what we in our roles as political Christians (that is, Christians employed, engaged or simply interested in politics) should be attempting to achieve.
