Synopses & Reviews
In this revised and expanded edition of Christian Perspectives on Politics, J. Philip Wogaman updates his comprehensive discussions on the interaction of Christian ethics and American politics. Wogaman clearly and fairly analyzes the long-standing debate about Christianity and politics and then constructs his own approach, all the while addressing the perennial political issues that continue to be of importance today.
This revised and expanded edition of Wogaman's text takes into account the major changes in international politics over the last decade: the decline of Marxism; the collapse of the Soviet Union; the end of the Cold War; and growing global economic interdependency.
Minister Wogaman updates his comprehensive discussions on the meaning and importance of politics; the history of Christian political thought; and church/state relations, the legislation of social morality, and criminal justice issues.
