The Myth of a Christian Nation

In Books


Jesus came to establish a kingdom that is “not of this world.” Kingdoms of the world seek to acquire and exercise power over others, whereas Jesus incarnated and demonstrated a kingdom that advances by exercising power under people. Author Gregory Boyd makes a compelling case that whenever the church gets too close to any political or national ideology, it is disastrous for the church and harmful to society. The American Evangelical Church has allowed itself to be co-opted by the political right (and some by the political left). Boyd exposes how this alignment undermines the church’s unique calling and greatly compromises the kingdom of God, not only in America but throughout the world.
