Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some see Mikhail Gorbachev's glasnost and perestroika as harbingers of a global spring in international relations. Yet, in today's world we see a continuing deterioration of basic human rights. Tiananmen Square was a brutal reminder that tyranny is still a reality in our world.

Is there Biblical justification for American Christian involvement in international politics and foreign affairs? This carefully articulated Christian theology of international politics is based on a sound understanding of Christianity, international politics, and the relationship between the two.

A timely, informed study on how Biblical faith relates to world politics. Curry provides a splendid defense of democratic capitalism. --Mark R. Amstutz, Professor/Chairman, Political Science Department, Wheaton College

In this thoughtful and well-reasoned work, Dean Curry has performed a signal service by taking a fresh look at the relationship of Christian faith to international politics... uncompromising in its preference for freedom over tyranny, and rightly critical of the utopianism that pervades so much of contemporary Christian thought. --Alberto R. Coll, Charles H. Stockton Professor of International Law, United States Naval War College

Curry has an impressive grasp of a broad array of foreign policy issues, and articulately weaves in a Biblical perspective for many of the international issues that will face us in the 1990s. --Walter H. Kansteiner III, U.S. Department of State, Policy Planning Staff

Synopsis:

A crisis of faith in our world has led to the rise of often brutal secularist ideologies. Curry examines world tyranny and offers an antidote: democratic capitalism enlightened by biblical truth. Part of the Turning Point series.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [213]-248) and index.
