About the Book

This book is a thought-provoking, deeply spiritual treatise containing a mixture of biblical and political research along with personal observations of the author regarding the lives of American citizens and Christians. Are the two identities compatible? Are they mutually exclusive? Can they work together?

Readers will ponder their own beliefs on these issues. Many Christians face the dilemma of choosing between their “rights” as citizens of America and their “rights” as citizens in God’s kingdom in their daily decisions and interaction with other people. The two are intertwined, and the choices we make determine the quality of our lives both as citizens of the USA and as children of the Living God. Christians must know their “rights” in the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness as US citizens and as citizens in God’s kingdom because they have a biblical duty to participate in the civic affairs of the United States.
