The Bible and the Ballot: Using Scripture in Political Decisions by Tremper Longman III
If you tune in to virtually any television news outlet today, your eyes and ears will be assailed with the bile and vitriol of the political rhetoric that is leading up to the 2020 election. In the midst of this already contentious election season, Dr. Tremper Longman III has issued a resounding call for the responsible use of Scripture in political decision-making. This call is a right and good and even a joyful thing, given that much of the current rhetoric that has been spewed involves an obscene abuse of Biblical doctrine.
In the midst of this disturbing situation, Longman provides clarity and sound teaching on Scripture from an informed, scholarly, and decidedly conservative position. His analysis is both accessible and erudite. He addresses key issues of the day with nuance and obvious deference to the witness of Scripture. His conclusions stand within the bounds of tradition; his style of argument is fresh and engaging.
