Join Dr. Brown as he interviews Wayne Grudem on what part Christians should take in the political realm, and hear Dr. Brown’s thoughts on patriotism and the Kingdom of God: are they related subjects?
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: My brothers and sisters, let us get involved and make a difference. It’s easy to see what’s wrong, criticize, complain, and get discouraged, but God is with us, and in Him we can and will make a difference in our world.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: We are in a war, but it’s not a war with people; it’s a spiritual battle. There is a devil who hates the souls of every human being and wants to destroy them. We have a message of liberation and freedom to the captives! Let us proclaim it without shame.

In brief, this is an analysis of conservative and liberal plans to do good for the nation, evaluated in light of the Bible and common sense. In this ground-breaking book, recognized evangelical Bible professor Wayne Grudem rejects five mistaken views about Christian influence on politics: (1) ‘compel religion,’ (2) ‘exclude religion,’ (3) ‘all government is demonic,’ (4) ‘do evangel-ism, not politics,’ and (5) ‘do politics, not evangelism.’ He proposes a better alternative: (6) ‘significant Christian influence on government.’ Read more here…
Revolution: The Call to Holy War by Dr. Brown: This book is not a call for the violent overthrow of the government, nor is it a call to take up arms, nor is it a call to political activism in and of itself. It is a call to something far more extreme, a call to live out the gospel…
