SUMMARY: From activists to local board members to pastors to state senators For the Love tells the story of what it can mean to be a Christian and be involved with politics. The interviewees know that the political process can be messy, but Christians acting distinctly and getting involved, especially at the local level, is one of the best and often overlooked ways to love our neighbors. This is a highly recommended resource and a great starting point on your learning journey.
