Arguing from Scripture and history, Dr. Boyd makes a compelling case that whenever the church gets too close to any political or national ideology, it is disastrous for the church and harmful to society. Dr. Boyd contends that the American Evangelical Church has allowed itself to be co-opted by the political right (and some by the political left), and exposes how this is harming the church's unique calling to build the kingdom of God.

In the course of his argument, Dr. Boyd challenges some of the most deeply held convictions of evangelical Christians in America – for example, that America is, or ever was, a Christian nation or that Christians ought to be trying to take America back for God. Download and start listening now!

    " Great challenge to Christians to be people who don't look to politics for answers the church should be bringing to society regarding social justice. I disagree with Boyd regarding his idea that Christians aren't called to politics, however. I believe Christians are called to everything. "

    " I'm not near his theology or political views, but it's an informative book. "

    " Admittedly, I was not a big fan of this book. If you're looking for how to handle the mix of politics and religion, then you may want to give this a try. I found the author's writing style to be rather dry and the repetition of certain words and phrases annoying. It made it difficult for me to fully grasp the message he was trying to convey or enjoy the book in general. I do agree with some of his general thoughts, but it was hard for me to find deeper meaning to apply to my own life. "
