Summer Book Study

9:30 a.m. • Goodpasture 
This summer, we will study Jesus and the Powers: Christian Political Witness in an Age of Totalitarian Terror and Dysfunctional Democracies by N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird.
The book is “an urgent call for Christians everywhere to explore the nature of Kingdom amid the political upheaval of our day.” It asks, “Should Christians be politically withdrawn, avoiding participation in politics to maintain their prophetic voice and to keep from being used as political pawns? Or should Christians be actively involved, seeking to utilize political systems to control the levers of power?” In Jesus and the Powers, the authors “call Christians everywhere to discern the nature of Christian witness in fractured political environments. In an age of ascending autocracies, in a time of fear and fragmentation, amid carnage and crises, Jesus is king, and Jesus’s kingdom remains the object of the church's witness and work.” The book is “part political theology, part biblical overview, and part church history,  [and] argues that building for Jesus's kingdom requires confronting empire in all its forms.”  
For additional information or questions, please contact Guy Stephanie Boaz (, or Will Wellman ( 
Buy a copy of the book here. Books are available in the office. Cost $18.
