From two former White House insiders, one a columnist for the Washington Post, the other for the  New York Times

Our nation is in a political nightmare. With the rise of the Alt-Right, and increasing division between liberals and conservatives, it is hard to know how to be politically engaged while maintaining Christian integrity.

Former White House insiders Michael Gerson and Peter Wehner call evangelicals toward a new kind of political engagement--a kind that is better both for the church and the country, a kind that cannot be co-opted by either political party, a kind that avoids the historic mistakes of both the Religious Right and the Religious Left.

A product of the authors' own wrestling with the complicated relationship between religion and politics, City of Man deals with questions central to evangelicals' future political role, including:

How can religious people exercise influence while maintaining their integrity? What tone should they be known for? How should they think about the role and purpose of government? Which causes and issues, both at home and abroad, ought to be a part of their agenda?

Incisive, bold, and marked equally by pragmatism and idealism, Gerson and Wehner's book charts a new political future not just for civic-minded Christians and "values voters," but for the nation as a whole.
