Power Made Perfect?
Is There a Christian Politics for the Twenty-First Century?
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Tim Sherratt has given us a feast! Citizens of all stripes, and especially Christians, should dig in. Moving from the lordship of Christ to details of contemporary issues and ideologies, he presents a perspective little known and even less discussed in Christian circles. In the midst of so much mindless chatter and interest-group battling, Christians should pause to consider the insights and wisdom of this clearly written, powerful challenge."
--James Skillen, retired president of the Center for Public Justice (1982-2009)
"How do we follow Jesus in our political lives so that we are really following Jesus, rather than merely using Jesus' name as cover for pursuing our own agenda and advantage? Read Power Made Perfect? with a study group in your church for an accessible, thoughtful introduction to political discipleship in the twenty-first-century United States."
--Gideon Strauss, Associate Professor of Worldview Studies, Institute for Christian Studies, Toronto; Senior Fellow, Center for Public Justice, Washington, DC
"Here we have the resource many citizens have longed for. Power Made Perfect? begins with a conversation, one that invites readers to ask and consider a wide range of serious questions about Christian political engagement. Sherratt outlines important Christian political philosophy, making it clear and giving real-world examples of its application. Christians who are tempted to give up on political engagement will be refreshed by the wise and practical counsel contained within."
--Stephanie Summers, CEO, Center for Public Justice
