At the direction of the CDC, governor, and Yale University, we have temporarily closed the YDS Bookstore due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will extend until at least May 1st, 2020. Orders placed during this time cannot be shipped or picked up until we reopen.

The Bookstore Team is still working remotely, and you can always reach us by email at divinity.bookstore@yale.edu. We are here to help anyway we can, from arranging later ship dates, providing recommended readings, or just being someone to talk to during this difficult time. We appreciate your patience and understanding—and please know that we miss you all so much. Be safe and stay healthy!

 

Public Faith in Action: How to Think Carefully, Engage Wisely, and Vote with Integrity

Public Faith in Action: How to Think Carefully, Engage Wisely, and Vote with Integrity
$20.00
Celebrated Theologian Offers Wisdom for Civic Engagement

Christian citizens have a responsibility to make political and ethical judgments in light of their faith and to participate in the public lives of their communities--from their local neighborhoods to the national scene. But it can be difficult to discern who to vote for, which policies to support, and how to respond to the social and cultural trends of our time.

This nonpartisan handbook offers Christians practical guidance for thinking through complicated public issues and faithfully following Jesus as citizens of their countries. The book focuses on enduring Christian commitments that should guide readers in their judgments and encourages legitimate debate among Christians over how to live out core values. The book also includes lists of resources for further reflection in each chapter and "room for debate" questions to consider.
