Jesus is Lord

Dr. Wayne Grudem's book, Politics - According to the Bible (Zondervan, 2010).
Wayne Grudem talks about five wrong views about Christian influence on politics: (1) “compel religion,” (2) “exclude religion,” (3) “all government is demonic,” (4) “do evangel-ism, not politics,” and (5) “do politics, not evangelism.” He proposes a better alternative: (6) “significant Christian influence on government.” Then he explains the Bible’s teachings about the purpose of civil government and the characteristics of good or bad government.
