Liberating the Nations: Biblical Principles of Government, Education, Economics, & Politics by Stephen K. McDowell & Mark A. Beliles
“To the degree that nations have applied the principles of the Bible, is the degree to which those nations have prospered, been free, and acted justly.”
With all that has been happening in our country and local communities in 2020, one of the questions being asked is: which is of greater value to us as a society – freedom or safety/security? Can we have both, or must one be sacrificed for the sake of the other? One of my favorite books for youth that I’ve written about is The Giver by Lois Lowy, a book that explores this dilemma.
Liberating the Nations is another book that I believe is relevant and helpful in today’s climate. The questions explored and discussed in this book are essentially:
- Is it possible for a nation to be really free?
- What is a Christian Nation?
- Can such a thing ever exist, and if so, how is one to be built?
