None of us wants the status quo when it comes to politics; that's why we have elections. Even so, there are few people in America satisfied with the candidates we are given year after year by either party for any governmental position.
In Picking a President, author Marty Schoenleber, Jr. proposes a grand reimagining of the process. Examining the book of Proverbs and its wisdom, he proposes selecting candidates not by party affiliation, money raised, or experience but by character, integrity,
vision, and justice.
Picking a President highlights these qualities as the vital center of sound political leadership. This thirty-one-day devotional examines the counsel of Solomon to his son on how to rule well. In each chapter of Proverbs, verses are selected that speak directly to the issue of ruling well or to the character of the man or woman who desires to rule well. Each chapter also includes a prayer, questions for reflection or discussion, and a short anecdotal story about the difference one vote made in an election somewhere in America.
Take a thirty-one day journey in Picking a President and allow your perspective to be challenged and perhaps changed.
