A Pilgrim's View of the Political World

Quotes from reviewers:

"This book does more than contradict conventional wisdom; it offers Biblical wisdom. Here are sound and carefully reasoned answers to questions that Christians raise about governments and how to relate to them. Spiced with anecdotes and aphorisms, this book is worth reading for pleasure and profit."
—David L. Martin, Rochester, Washington

"I found Pilgrims and Politics very interesting and enlightening. I especially like the summarizing statements. Many of them are gems of truth. This book touches an area that in my opinion has been somewhat of a blind spot. In so doing, it does our brotherhood a real service. Hopefully, God will use this book to correct muddled thinking within our ranks and to teach future generations. It should also attract serious Christians outside of Mennonite circles."
—Merle Ruth, Annville, Pennsylvania

"Pilgrims and Politics is a stimulating, informative, and well-researched treatment of the Christian's relationship to politics. This book is especially timely as we witness the unrestrained involvement of modern evangelicals in politics and the democratic process. Christians need to read this book."
—Dennis Torkelson, Duchess, Alberta

"Much research and prayer has gone into this book. It has the potential to help us think right and act right, now and in the years ahead. It has sharpened my thinking in some respects, and I am grateful."
—the late James L. Boll, Flat Gap, Kentucky

"How should Christians respond to various political situations? Where is God in the rise and fall of governments? What answers does the Bible give to the pilgrim's questions about politics? This book alerts us to the problems of pilgrims and politics and points us to Scriptural answers."
—Lester E. Showalter, Greencastle, Pennsylvania
