The book examines some of divisiveness of politics and Christianity in America today by reviewing the history of the United States, the nature of partisanship, and key court decisions that have helped decide the future of many issues important to Christians. It reminds readers of Christian principles and references the Bible extensively, challenging readers to reflect on their beliefs and behaviors.
IS THE LEFT EVER RIGHT? is a book about America's historical connection to the Christian faith, its evolution over time, and its challenges in the current divisive political climate in the United States. The book was written for believers, in part to challenge some views and practices, but more importantly to encourage all Christians to follow God's commandment to love one another, even when there is disagreement about political issues. The book is also for anyone interested in U.S. history and issues important to many evangelical Christians that may influence how they vote. It includes views of the Founding Fathers, key court decisions, and addresses topics of interest to Christians today (like abortion, socialism, climate change, and the government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic). It also uses extensive references from the Bible to help illustrate guidance on important Christian principles. Finally, while challenging people to examine their beliefs and behaviors, it shares key aspects about the Gospel and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. In so doing, it examines various competing beliefs and challenges everyone to consider not only their current temporal state, but also their hope for eternity.
