Jesus Christ is good news for public life, and Christian contribution is needed now as much as ever. But what does this mean? Christianity has a controversial history in the public square, including involvement, withdrawal and appeasement. Today many Christians are left confused - resulting in either inactivity or division, just when our love and clarity are needed most. This foundational book lays out a biblical framework for Christian engagement. It shows God's purposes for government as a small picture of his own kingdom. This means we can see how, rightly understood, political theory points toward the gospel, and also how the gospel should shape our understanding and approach to the public square. The four chapters of the book demonstrate this with reference to the four key questions of the public square, asked by Christians and non-Christians alike: 1. Public Authority - what is the role of the authorities? 2. Public Truth - how can we know what is good? 3. Public Good - what is good for us? 4. Public Hope - how can this good be achieved?
