Statism happens when, as R.C. Sproul puts it, “the government is perceived as or claims to be the ultimate reality. This reality then replaces God as the supreme entity upon which human existence depends.” As the federal government continues to expand its power to violate religious conviction, and as politically incorrect opinions are increasingly outcast, we will continue to witness this country becoming a more dangerous place for Christians.
Statism: The Shadows of Another Night is a brilliant anthology on the danger of oppressive government power and the Christian response to it. Featuring written works from distinguished Christian authors such as C.S. Lewis, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Timothy Keller, Francis Schaeffer, Jerry Newcombe, and many more; this book is an invaluable resource that provides a detailed overview of statism, as well as and what it means to us as Christians now and in the future.
Statism goes into depth about the relationship between the power of the state and the will of its people. It answers questions such as: How did the current trend towards statism come about? What place does personal conviction and religious expression have in our contemporary society? What becomes of civilization when the government assumes deific power? And, most importantly, what is our responsibility as Christians towards government overreach?
Statism: The Shadows of Another Night gives invaluable insight on this topic from some of the most esteemed Christian voices. This book will provide you with in-depth knowledge about a subject that has been significant in history and still remains crucial today.
