A political theology for preaching

Full Title
A political theology for preaching
Author
Jeffrey W Hutchison
Abstract
This dissertation argued that one must base a political theology for preaching on an understanding of God's ordering of creation, the effect of the fall, and the restoration of redemption, and on a comprehension of God's sovereignty over every sphere of creation. It began with the insights of historians of American evangelical engagement with politics. In discussing creation, fall, and redemption, this dissertation exposited scripture and engaged in dialogue primarily with the neo-Calvinist writings of Abraham Kuyper and his followers. In the final chapter, this dissertation provided implication for preaching about politics.
