Overview

Can you answer the top 5 political questions of all time:

1. Which Scriptures should guide our public policy?
2. How did God intend man to be governed?
3. What's the role of the church in politics?
4. What's the role of the individual Christian in politics?
5. How can you know who to vote for and why?

In the current systematic theology treatises, there's little taught about government, nor how the Christian community should, if at all, involve itself in government and politics. Result: the Christian community lacks a theology of government by which to guide them in how to think, act, and vote from a Biblical perspective.

Lessons In Governing: The Inseparable Relationship Between God, Man and Government solves that problem starting with Andy Gaus' new in-your-face translation from the Septuagint of Deuteronomy (the most quoted book of the American Revolution), 19 Essays that answer the Top 5 Political Questions of All Time, and a special reference section with documents from the Founding Fathers demonstrating the inseparable relationship between God, man and government in action.

His German translations include Max and Moritz and Other Bad Boy Tales and a collection of works by Rainer Maria Rilke entitled Requiem for a Woman. He's a graduate of Wesleyan University with a B.A. in German, and while at Wesleyan, Andy edited the literary magazine. Unvarnished Deuteronomy is his first translation from the Septuagint.

Peter Lawrence Alexander is Film Music Magazine's award winning journalist. He's the author of Writing and Performing Christian Music: God's Plan and Purpose For the Church (the first theology of Christian music based on exegetical research), and The Road of Blood: The Untold Story of the Good Samaritan, an historical fiction retelling of the famous parable.
