On Faith and Politics

Great post today from Scott McKnight, reviewing a book by William Cavanaugh entitled Theopolitical Imagination.

I think Cavanaugh and McKnight have put their finger on a very important point: Are Christians investing their hope for the future of the world in the Kingdom of God and the role that the church plays within it? Or do we think that a particular political viewpoint/agenda is the answer to the world’s problems?

A lot of us need to think long and hard about this issue.
