One of the blessings of serving in a politically diverse area like Madison is having friends with different political views. At the same time, one of the difficulties of serving in a politically diverse area like Madison is having friends with different political views!
Few issues elicit emotionally-charged responses as much as politics. This is true both inside and outside the church. How can we love other church members while holding to very different political views?
To help answer that question, Jonathan Leeman and Andy Naselli have written a small but beneficial book that I commend to you.
However, if you want to save some money, they turned their work into a journal article for Themelios, which is accessible for free. I’ve read both the book and the article and found both helpful. If you read the free article and not the book, you will not be missing anything of great importance.
Furthermore, Dr. Naselli has three videos of him lecturing on this topic in various settings.
You can find links to the book, the free article, and the videos at Dr. Naselli’s website.
Whether via book, article, or video, I encourage you to interact with this very helpful resource about loving our fellow church members who have different political views.
