Book Summary of Christ and the Kingdoms of Men by David C. Innes


When the word politics is mentioned, a flurry of negative connotations often comes to mind. Yet “politics is ubiquitous because we were made not for ourselves but for God and for one another” (p. 197).

Christians should be involved in politics since politics ultimately deals with our shared lives together. Government is a good gift of God. Believers ought not merely obey the government but also seek to be good citizens in their respective countries by promoting truth and liberty even while making sure that their highest allegiance is to Christ. 

Politics is not, from the biblical perspective, ultimately about power grabs, but about how people can live in shared values and goals in a just society that is conducive to true human flourishing that consists of glorifying God and enjoying Him forever. 

“Politics is important because life is important.” (p. xviii) Every Christian ought to understand politics becauses life matters and they seek to see every image bearer of God treated with dignity and respect even as they seek to share the gospel with all in hopes of seeing them come into the kingdom of Christ.
