Cultivating Kindness, Civility, and Truth in the Election Season

Civility Election Season  Civility Election Season  Civility Election Season

Although it seems quite odd due to the pandemic, we are now in the thick of another brutal presidential election season in the United States.  

Sure, very important things are at stake in this election, and indeed both the Right and the Left would argue that precious human lives are at stake. Regardless of who we will vote for in November, Christians need to be people of truth, kindness, and civility in a culture in which all three of these virtues are rare. I encourage you to check out our reading guide on being people of the truth, and below you will find several books on the importance of kindness and civility in our political interactions. You’ll find more books than any one person could read between now and Election Day, but perhaps maybe one or two of the books here will stand out as ones you need to read.

The Political Disciple: A Theology of Public Life

Vincent Bacote

What might it mean for public and political life to be understood as an important dimension of following Jesus?  As a part of Zondervan’s Ordinary Theology series, Vincent E. Bacote’s The Political Disciple addresses this question by considering not only whether Christians have (or need) permission to engage the public square, but also what it means to reflect Christlikeness in our public practice, as well as what to make of the typically slow rate of social change and the tension between relative allegiance to a nation and/or a political party and ultimate allegiance to Christ. Pastors, laypeople, and college students will find this concise volume a handy primer on Christianity and public life.
