From Augustine to Solzhenitsyn, Christians have struggled with the meaning of faith and politics, and the landscape of those who have tried in combine the two is littered with distortion and confusion.
Alan Storkey examines the politics of Jesus, reading out from the life and work of Jesus instead of reading into the New Testament with a preconceived agenda. With this work, Storkey presents a thorough narrative reading of the Gospels, moving into issues of political philosophy, principle, and practice. Unlike other authors who focus on political themes, Storkey provides a significant, unique contribution by focusing on politics itself.
Jesus and Politics will appeal to students of the New Testament, Christianity and culture, politics, and economics as well as thoughtful readers interested in Jesus studies and politics.
