Customer Reviews for The Politics of Jesus, 2nd Edition
Always skeptical of any Christian book addressing politics, I found this book absolutely amazing. In it, Professor Yoder first presents the Kingdom that Christ established and the rules by which its citizens would adhere. All that proceeds from this idea, our role in this current earthly kingdom, our ethics, our duties, naturally follow from the fact that Christians have one Lord and Master and there can be no shared allegiance.

Review 2 for The Politics of Jesus, 2nd Edition
Date:March 3, 2001
If more evangelicals read *this* book, instead of junk by Robertson, Falwell, Schaeffer, and Randall Terry. They would find their witness stronger and their influence greater than what they have acheived by just being the reliable footsoldiers of the Republican National Committee.
