Can You Answer the Top 5 Political Questions of All Time:

  • Which Scriptures should guide our public policy?
  • How did God intend man to be governed?
  • What's the role of the church in politics?
  • What's the role of the individual Christian in politics?
  • How can you know who to vote for and why?

    In the current systematic theology treatises, there's little taught about government, nor how the Christian community should, if at all, involve itself in government and politics.

    Result: the Christian community lacks a theology of government by which to guide them in how to think, act, and vote from a Biblical perspective.

    Solution: Lessons In Governing: The Inseparable Relationship Between God, Man and Government which solves that problem starting with Andy Gaus' new in-your-face translation from the Septuagint of Deuteronomy (the most quoted book of the American Revolution), 19 Essays that answer the Top 5 Political Questions of All Time, and a special Reference section with documents from the Founding Fathers demonstrating the inseparable relationship between God, man and government in action.
