Does religion have a place in politics? Anyone following current events knows that there exists a tremendous debate on the influence of religion, especially the Christian religion, on elections, the creation of laws, and the interpretation of these laws by judges. But these debates often focus on a few narrowly defined topics, rarely acknowledging the history, breadth, and diversity of Christian activism in modern political culture across the globe. The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics reveals the global reach and relevance of Christian political activities, examining how individuals, reform groups, and political organizations have employed Christian principles in participating in politcs at a local, national, and global scale.
The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics examines Christian political involvement from the American and French Revolutions to the present day. It focuses on those prominent people, organizations, and reform groups - Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox — that have had a significant impact on politics.
