How can two people have a common faith but different political loyalties?

How does the Christian faith shape how we should vote and participate in the political process?

In this updated edition of Left, Right, and Christ, authors D.C. Innes and Lisa Sharon Harper discuss and explore how the Christian faith speaks directly to American politics today, but with different understanding and applications. They address questions like:

Editorial Reviews

"Lisa Sharon Harper and D.C. Innes...engage in a far-ranging dialogue about many issues of public policy. Obviously, you won't agree with everything each author has to say. I didn't. But you will find the discussion quite stimulating, which is clearly the purpose of the book."Jim WallisPresident & CEO, SojournersNew York Times bestselling author, God's Politics"We live in an age of partisanship and incivility where simple issues have become battlefields for fierce division. In such a moment, American Christians on the left and right must relearn the art of graceful and winsome dialogue. In Left, Right and Christ, Lisa Sharon Harper and D.C. Innes attempt to build bridges of understanding across the divides on our sharpest disagreements. Read this book, and decide for yourself!"Jonathan MerrittAuthor of A Faith of Our Own: Following Jesus Beyond the Culture WarsIf this isn't a conversation starter for Christians, then nothing else will be.Marvin OlaskyEditor in Chief, World
