I support political positions in this book that would be called more ‘conservative’ than ‘liberal.’ … It is important to understand that I see these positions as flowing out of the Bible’s teachings rather than positions that I hold prior to, or independently of, those biblical teachings. And I do not hesitate to criticize Republican policies where I differ with them. . . . My primary purpose in the book is not to be liberal or conservative, or Democratic or Republican, but to explain a biblical worldview and a biblical perspective on issues of politics, law, and government. … I hope that Christians who take the Bible as a guide for life will find these discussions encouraging. I believe that God’s perspective on politics is joyful ‘good news,’ just as the rest of the Bible is good news for all areas of life!
