Wayne Grudem has written a book titled Politics According to the Bible. This is a book that I would never read. As I said on T.C. Robinson’s blog I am a bit skeptical of such an endeavor. Any time I see a book on “family in the Bible” or “eating right in the Bible” or even “politics in the Bible” I suspect it will be a bit too crisp and a bit too clean for my own liking. I know this probably pushes me into the “biblical literature/exegetes v. systematic theologians” debate so I want to clarify that I don’t mind systematics, per se, but I do sometimes worry that these types of books oversimplify subjects in a way that Scripture does not.
