"This is the best handbook on Christian loyalty in the market right now!" The strength of LOYALTY TO THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST: CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY IN POLITICS AND SOCIETY is in the fact that Sven Pearl Johanson concretely discusses issues of conflict of loyalty facing Christians today in the society and in politics. The author/thinker offers specific ways in which Christians can show their loyalty to Jesus Christ. Particularly helpful is Sven's discussion of the implications of being citizens in the Kingdom of Christ. What does it mean to belong to a Heavenly Kingdom on earth? Does being a Christian have relevance for every-day living? How about voting in elections? Also helpful is Sven's discussion of the concept of a Christian Holy War. There are many questions regarding how Christians view Holy War. LOYALTY TO THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST: CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY IN POLITICS AND SOCIETY is the right book to start answering pressing questions about the concept of Holy War in Christianity. This book is essential reading for all Christian leaders and also other Christians who are serious about their Christian faith and want to apply it in practical ways. This book will be particularly good for discussions in Christian youth group and college Bible studies in Church and Christian School settings. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and Campus Crusade for Christ leaders may want to use this book as a springboard for discussions about the place of Christians in society. There is a wealth of information from the Bible, history, theology, philosophy, and social sciences. This is a very intellectual book that is also very readable. This book should be on the shelf of every serious Christian's library.
