Should the church get involved in politics or influence their voting members? What is the church mandate on this issue? How should Christians project themselves? Many Christians are wondering how to respond to the confusion generated by the variety of candidates for public office and the differing perspectives of church leaders who are trying to evaluate the political picture. This book, first offered in French, offers guidelines to assist Christians in determining how best to participate in the political arena as citizens who have a dual citizenship: in heaven and in the country of their residence.

Review:

The Gospel and The Citizen is an excellent study of what the Word of God has to say about the Christian s involvement in society, politics, and government and how we are to engage them. I deeply appreciate the good, exegetical work in the text accompanied by a warm, gracious spirit which was evident throughout the book. I whole-heartedly agree that we as the Church of Jesus Christ will have our greatest impact with the gospel by living it out, not by attempting to legislate it. --Jeffrey A. Gill, D.Min., Ph.D., ice President and Dean, Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana

Varak and Viguier have made a valuable contribution to the issue of the Christian s involvement in the political arena. By masterfully crafting a series of probing questions interspersed with key Scriptures, they have succeeded in challenging you to defend your own conclusions. Anyone wishing to be salt and light in an increasingly secular world needs to read this book. It will powerfully test your thinking and, as a citizen of another country, set you free to engage biblically during your earthly sojourn. --Irv Busenitz, Th.D. Sr. Vice President of Academics and Dean of Faculty, Master s Seminary, Sun Valley, California
