Rescue your church from the infiltration of partisan politics.

Especially in this election season, the political discourse within our
country grows more rancorous and increasingly uncivil. During the last
several decades there has been a growing tendency to conflate one's
theological commitments with one's political ideology. As a consequence,
partisan politics has infiltrated our churches and political
commitments are creating unnecessary divisions. Perhaps of most concern,
these trends generally tend to obscure the properly holistic nature of
the Gospel of Christ and turn people off to Christianity altogether. Too
often, it often seems politics has more influence than theology. Sadly,
this leads to division, where decisions on church direction, and even
the content of teaching, gets determined more based on partisan politics
than on sound biblical and theological factors.

Hijacked explores this phenomenon, offers analysis, and proposes a way forward.

4.0 von 5 Sternen So happy! 16. April 2012
Von E. Morgan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm so happy that there is a book that acknowledges and adresses that politics has become a problem in the church. I did find the book too wordy and "intellectual" at times. I think the point could have been made on a more reader friendly level. Every pastor needs to read this book. I haven't been to church regularly in three years because of the persecution I faced for voting Democrat. I've been told I'm going to Hell and that I am less of a Christian. Of course, I don't believe any of that but would you go to church with people like that? Knowing that you are being judged by who you vote for rather than for your Christian walk? There is a huge problem in the church and I am happy to see it addressed. Hopefully, there will be more books that address this issue in the future!

It was okay, very repetitive, could have used some good editing. I agree with his premise that Christianity is being mis-appropriated by political figures, but after the first chapter or so his viewpoints appeared to be quite a bit more fundamentalist than mine. I tossed it after reading it once.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Every Christian should read this book 19. April 2013
Von Joyce Kaminski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really liked the book. I am glad that more and more Christians are speaking out on this subject. Those of us who love the Lord but not the Republican party have felt like outsiders inside the evangelical church, a church I strongly identified with until it became a promoter of right wing conservative politics instead of the gospel. And they are not the same!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Needed to be written 5. Dezember 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wish more people would read this book. As a pastor in the south, there has been a prevalent attitude that God is on one side of the political divide or the other and if you don't vote a certain way, you're betraying God. Rev. Slaughter has done a good job with this issue and reminded those of us who read it that the church and our faith is meant to have a voice outside of politics. If anything, our politics should be affected by our faith and not vice-versa.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Encouragement to love well 28. Dezember 2012
Von Libby Bergstrom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book in the midst of this year's bitter presidential campaign and found it a breath of fresh air. The authors challenge their readers to figure out how to love even when they hold radically different opinions, especially in the political arena. I'm keeping this book to reread next election season, when I need to be reminded how Jesus would have approached our political process.
