Healing for a Broken World

Today, I picked up a book for the first time and now I can't put it down. The book is Healing for a Broken World: Christian Perspectives on Public Policy by Steven Monsma. For some time, I have been looking for a book that offers a balanced approach to public policy that all evangelicals--both left-leaning and right-leaning--can rally around. This book just might be it. 

The book has an star-studded and diverse list of endorsements that by itself almost warrants reading the book. From the right, Monsma is endorsed by Chuck Colson, Francis Beckwith, Os Guiness and Joel Belz of World Magazine; from the center or left (depending on how you see it), Ron Sider, David Gushee and Jennifer Butler of Faith in Public Life. The content is equally provocative. Monsma tackles important issues, such as church and state, life issues, poverty, human rights violations, and war. 

If you have not read this book, consider ordering it. If you have read it, let me know if what you thought about it. I'd love to know if anyone feels like I do.
