Political Agape: Christian Love and Liberal Democracy

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Political Agape: Christian Love and Liberal Democracy
Publisher: Eerdmans Publishing Company
Author: Timothy P. Jackson

Description

What is the place of Christian love in a pluralistic society dedicated to “liberty and justice for all”? What would it mean to take both Jesus Christ and Abraham Lincoln seriously and attempt to translate love of God and neighbor into every quarter of life, including law and politics?

Timothy Jackson here argues that agapic love of God and neighbor is the perilously neglected civil virtue of our time -- and that it must be considered even before justice and liberty in structuring political principles and policies. Jackson then explores what “political agape” might look like when applied to such issues as the death penalty, same-sex marriage, and adoption.
