"Politics Under God" - TWU Professor John Redekop lectures on his recent book.

Langley, BC-The History and Political Science Department at Trinity Western University welcomes students, faculty and the general public to their Fall Departmental Public Lecture where Dr. John Redekop will discuss themes from his recently published book entitled "Politics Under God."

The 224 page book answers questions such as: What does God require of governments? When, why and how should Christians become involved in politics? And can morality be legislated?


Dr. John Redekop, Adjunct Professor of Political Science at Trinity Western University is no stranger to public policy. As an accomplished author and editor, Redekop has contributed to numerous articles and books and has appeared on popular television shows such as Cross Currents and The Stiller Report.

Redekop will be speaking at the public lecture on the main themes of "Politics Under God." Following his presentation, there will be a Question and Response Session, followed by refreshments.

Praise for this significant book, by a Canadian political scientist who brings Christian thinking to bear on political issues, is growing. Reginald Bibby, University of Lethbridge writes, "This is an important book that makes a clear case for why politics cannot be ignored by any evangelical who aspires to have an influence on personal and collective life."

This is the third book written by Redekop. Other titles include "The American Far Right" and "A People Apart: Ethnicity and the Mennonite Brethren." "Politics Under God" is published by the Herald Press a division of Mennonite Publishing Network and Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada.
