How does your faith inform what it means to be an American? Letters to an American Christian by Bruce Riley Ashford seeks to address this question. Here’s how Dr. Ashford describes the book:
I’ve written the book as a series of twenty-six brief letters to a hypothetical college student, ‘Christian,’ who is double-majoring in political science and journalism at an elite university. Christian is trying to figure out his political beliefs in light of his newly-found faith. I am coaching him to steer clear of the secular progressivism of his professors and the secular versions of conservatism held by his family members, and instead to build his beliefs in light of Christian principles. Above all, I am coaching him to build his political beliefs in light of Christian principles.
My hope is to remind readers of two important truths: we cannot afford to shrink away from our earthly citizenship, and we cannot afford to lose sight of our heavenly citizenship.
