The Political Disciple

Dr. Vincent Bacote of Wheaton College calls Christians to consider what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, to examine their public witness, to pursue public holiness and offers insight on living faithfully in trying times. The disciple of Jesus Christ is also called to think and act biblically, and the political arena is no exception. But in such confusing and polarizing times, it is easy to become disoriented and wonder how we are to engage the public square in a Christlike manner.
