Evangelicals and the Public Square

What role do Christians have in politics? Well, click the link below and prayerfully listen to three sharp thinkers discuss this topic.

Chuck Colson is a former Nixon White House staff member who served a prison sentence for Watergate crimes. He became a believer right before entering prison, later he started Prison Fellowship ministries, and now speaks to churches about their role in culture and political engagement.

Greg Boyd is a middle-age pastor and adjunct professor.

Shane Claiborne is a 32-year old Christian who is a part of a new movement toward Christian monasticism.

They were interviewed together at the national Pastor's Conference. The audio clip is approximately 60 minutes.

Listening to this session I would say that Greg Boyd misses the point of Matthew 5:13-16.
