I am a reading machine! No, not really. And this isn’t going to be a political blog. I am doing another book review, this time for Dr. James Kennedy’s book How Would Jesus Vote?. I have to admit that I haven’t finished it yet. It is easy to read and very informative but not my usual reading genre. I must admit that I do have to concentrate a bit harder and haven’t found it easy to zone out and read while playing catch and pass, being the dragon monster for my three power rangers and quiz for a spelling test.
So below you will find a bio and a description of the book. It definitely is worth a read and helps examine important issues from a Christian perspective. Election day is coming up so if anyone wants to pick this book up go to your local bookstore or http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1400074061 .
Book: How Would Jesus Vote?
Summary: The 2008 election is shaping up to be one of the most important political contests in American history. In fact, Dr. D. James Kennedy believes it will be a watershed moment that could impact our very survival as a nation under God.
Values voters—people whose political views and votes are based on their faith in God—are being targeted as never before. As the campaign season moves forward, the significant players will debate terrorism, radical Islam, nuclear threats, global warming, social issues, gay marriage, immigration, education, health care, and many other essential issues that can create sharp ideological divisions.
Into this overwhelmingly complex political situation, Dr. Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe bring a clear, compelling, and nonpartisan exploration of what God’s Word has to say on these critical matters. How Would Jesus Vote? isn’t intended to tell readers which candidates to support; rather it offers a Christ-centered understanding of the world to help readers draw their own political conclusions.
Jerry Newcombe is senior producer for Coral Ridge Ministries television and has produced or coproduced more than fifty documentaries. The host of two weekly radio shows, he has also been a guest on numerous television and radio talk shows. He is the author or coauthor of more than fifteen books.
Dr. D. James Kennedy is one of the most trusted and recognized Christian leaders of our time. The senior minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, he is the featured preacher on television’s “The Coral Ridge Hour” and radio’s “Truths That Transform”, syndicated on over one thousand stations throughout the U.S. The founder and president of Evangelism Explosion International and chancellor of Knox Theological Seminary, he is the author of more than sixty books, including the bestselling What If Jesus Had Never Been Born?
