Customer Questions & Answers for
P & R Publishing Republocrat: Confessions of a Liberal Conservative

If they do not break their strong identification with one particular political and cultural point of view, conservative American Christians risk not only becoming irrelevant, but an irritant to younger generations, asserts British-born adopted son Carl Trueman in Republocrat. Although Trueman (The Wages of Sin) has plenty of grenades to lob at the religious left, his main fire is reserved for the religious right, with whom he is more intimately acquainted.

In successive chapters, he takes on not only the "middle class identity politics" of the left, but American exceptionalism, the relationship between conservative Christians and the media, and whether Christians should believe that "the capitalist way is God's way." Sometimes witty,often acerbic, this volume is an exhortation to American Christians to take a more reflective, responsible, less partisan role in the political realm.

Given that it is rather light on theology and has little biblical content, it is more a call to Christian citizenship than a work of scholarship--which might, indeed, be what the author, a professor at Westminster Theological Seminary, intended in this trenchant meditation.
