Ep. 94: Preston Sprinkle on a Biblical Approach to American Politics

You may be in the tribe that tells you that Christianity and the Republican Party are one in the same. Or perhaps you are in the tribe that is a reaction to that approach, proclaiming that the policies of the Democrat Party are actually where Jesus would land. What if the Bible offers a very different approach to politics than the one most Christians today take? Preston Sprinkle explores this approach, comparing the United States to biblical Babylon, where God's people lived in exile, and to biblical Rome, where Jesus walked and the first century church got its start.


New York Times bestselling author Dr. Preston M. Sprinkle has written more than a dozen books. He serves as the president of the Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender and as the host of the Theology in the Raw podcast.


His new book is Exiles: Church in the Shadow of Empire.
