Citizen: Faithful Discipleship in a Partisan World
(Church Publishing Inc., 2020)
WHO: C. Andrew Doyle, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.
HE SAYS: “I hope this book will offer an engaged, virtuous, habit-forming Christian citizenship that is convivial in manner and works towards a common good.”
THE BIG IDEA: Our current political debates are not about one narrative winning, but communities of diversity being unified by a relationship with God’s grand narrative.
Through this book, the author offers a roadmap for Christian citizens of the United States in this election year. In 16 chapters and a separate conclusion, he deals with questions of Christian citizenship: What is its framework? What are its originating principles? How does it engage the world? What does it look like in community?
