A must-read for Christians struggling with the present political conversation

Citizen helps Christians find our place in the politics of the world. In these pages, Bishop Andy Doyle offers a Christian virtue ethic grounded in fresh anthropology. He offers a vision of the individual Christian within the reign of God and the life of the broader community. He adds to the conversation in both church and culture by offering a renewed theological underpinning to the complex nature of Christianity in a post-modern world.

How did we get here? Is this the way it has to be? Are there implications for conversations about politics within the church? Doyle contends that our current debates are not about one partisan narrative winning, but communities of diversity being unified by a relationship with God's grand narrative. Crafting a deep theological conversation with a unified approach to the Old and New Testament, Citizen asks, what does it truly mean to live in community?

“An alternative to both apathy and anger, Citizen is a call to discover civic hope. ‘Follow Jesus,’ Bishop Doyle urges in a winsome and compelling way, and you’ll find yourself mending God’s garden—God’s home—that is our shared world.” —Miroslav Volf, director of the Yale Center for Faith Culture

“A keen-eyed theological analysis of where we are today as Christians.” —Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke Divinity School
