Politics has become something of a joke—but not a funny one. "Sound-bite" and "knee-jerk" have replaced reasoned debate, and the church appears to wear a one-size fits-all political jacket. Isn’t it time to think a bit deeper? Carl Trueman takes you on a readable, provocative, and lively romp through Christianity and politics.


"I heartily recommend that you read this book. But you do so at your own peril."

—Peter A. Lillback

"Our political choices are very often between relative goods and lesser evils. Republocrat is the honest and heart-felt lament of a talented theologian's struggle with the limited choices before us. Well argued, and well worth arguing with, Trueman's book has the potential to spark lively conversations and much needed debate. Let's hope so."

—Michael Cromartie

"In this highly readable analysis . . . Trueman warns against absolutizing any political/economic worldview."

—Andrew W. Hoffecker

"Carl's purpose, sanely and boldly argued, is to call Christians to a more carefully reasoned and biblically sound pursuit of the kingdom of God."

—T. M. Moore
