Hey, Gang, my new book is out. Take a gander and see what you think. For years, I have felt that the normal way of phrasing the question was NOT what is the biblical role of government. That makes the whole issue too abstract, as if God had intentions for government separated from the bigger picture. The better question, I argue, is how does God intend us to live together. From there, we can explore the kinds of public policies and institutions that might empower that way of living. Check it out here.
