The Political Teachings of Jesus

  • By Tod Lindberg
  • By Tod Lindberg
$16.99

Product Description

Veteran political analyst and commentator Tod Lindberg goes beyond punditry to examine how Jesus's message, once considered radical and revolutionary, has come to define our concept of a stable and lasting government. In The Political Teachings of Jesus, Lindberg takes a detailed look at the role the New Testament has played in the formation of the modern democratic ideal, and demonstrates how the basic principles of both liberal and conservative thought in the United States find a common origin in Christianity.

Tod Lindberg is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and editor of its award-winning publication Policy Review. He is also the editor of Beyond Paradise and Power: Europe, America and the Future of a Troubled Partnership, a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard, and a frequent analyst on NPR who has often appeared on public-affairs television programs. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife and two daughters.

"You will never read the Bible or hear a sermon the same way again after reading The Political Teachings of Jesus. Tod Lindberg outlines Jesus's teachings for this world, not the next - for how we can and should strive for a global 'community of goodwill.' In an age in which politics and religion are so often dangerously distorted and intertwined, this political teaching of one of our greatest religious figures could not be more timely."

-Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of The Idea That Is America
