Public Faith, Bringing Personal Faith to Public Issues

“We often make the mistake of running to God for answers before we have allowed him to teach us how best to frame our questions. We come with our wrongheaded agenda when what we need is a radical transformation of perspective. As a protection against this tendency, I have written (for the most part) expositionally rather than topically. We want to be patient rather than impatient children — gathering quietly in the Father’s study to hear him out, rather than dragging him by the hand to and from the rooms of our choosing.” From the introduction.

Excellent primer on how to think about faith and politics. Thanks, Charles Drew. Second and third readings will be beneficial.
