What Role Should Evangelicals Play in American Politics?


Below is a great dialogue between 3 generations of Evangelicals who have very well thought out views on the political involvement of Christians in America.  The conversation features Chuck Colson, Greg Boyd and Shane Claiborne and is moderated by Speaking of Faith host Krista Tippet.  Though no discussions seem to be more passionate and heated as those concerning politics and religion the dialogue was both respectful and informative.  I would hope that many evangelicals would check this clip out and wrestle through the issues a bit before simply jumping in to the political process.  While I tend to find myself agreeing more with Boyd and Claiborne, I really appreciated Colson's very thought out reasons for involvement in the political process.  The video is over an hour long but is time well-spent.  Check it out:
