About This Product This book may not be the kind of thing you can discuss in polite company. How do we deal with it? What if a faithful approach to politics wasn't simply about who was going to win the next election? How might our political hope change when we encounter a God who offers us a different kind of kingdom?

God isn't asking the church to be politically uniformed, apathetic, or even bi-partisan. On the contrary. God is asking us to be faithful citizens of the kingdom-a kingdom of surprising hope where the majority of God's work to save the world will be done.

In Kings and Presidents, authors Tim Gaines and Shawna Songer Gaines helps us recast our political hope by challenging the claim that history is written exclusively by the powerful. Through a careful study of 2 Kings, we will find that trusting in God's faithfulness is plenty political, and it has real implications for our communities, the world, and the kind of political hope we can find in it all.
