 ‘There’s no one I trust more than Mark Dever to teach what the Bible tells us about Christianity and government. I commend this book to you.’ ~ Collin Hansen, The Gospel CoalitionIn a society where religion is increasingly private, and faith is OK as long as it’s not shared, many would seek to keep God out of their politics. But is that right, and is it biblical?This is an important topic to consider, not just for those working in government, but for all of us as we seek to be responsible citizens in a fallen world.Mark Dever unpacks what the Bible has to say on this topic, and teaches how we can ‘Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s’ without compromising on what we believe. We’ll see that our duty to God is comprehensive and that there isn’t an area of life that we can separate from His influence. This little book won’t take long to read, but its impact could last a lifetime.‘This is a little book full of big surprises. There are many books about God and politics but few that are all about Jesus and very few that are about one verse in the bible. Mark Dever superbly unpacks Jesus’ surprising response to his opponents question, which Jeremy Paxman would have been proud of – is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not? He has become every politicians favourite author by daring to thank us for ‘doing God’s work’. But Mark does not let you or me get away with just giving ‘that coin back to Caesar’ given his clarion call to ‘give yourself to God’. He sets out Jesus’ wonderful vision which goes deeper and higher than politics. It leads us to grow in our respect for politics and our hope for better to come.’ ~ David Burrowes, Member of Parliament for Enfield Southgate
