Christians and Politics -- thoughts before an election


Yesterday I sat down for an interview with my publisher Henry Neufeld, dealing with the topic of Christianity and politics. My interview is one of three that  were done with other Energion authors who represent both a conservative Republican position and what might be considered an attempt to distance faith from politics. You might call that a Hauerwasian turn. In any case, this is my response to the questions. I address the role of faith and public life in my book Faith in the Public Square, and in  a somewhat different way in my book Ultimate Allegiance, which is a reflection on the Lord's Prayer. Both were published a few years back by Energion Publications.


Below is the interview in the form of a Youtube Video. In invite you to watch, and then get yourself informed to vote on Tuesday---or don't complain about the political situation.
