Christian Citizenship Guide: Christianity and Canadian Political Life

New ARPA book, researched and written by Michael Wagner (Phd in Political Science, University of Alberta)
This Christian Citizenship Guide is intended to help us better understand Canadian political life and the valuable role that we each can have in applying our faith to it. Topics tackled include the Christian contribution to Canada’s history, understanding our Parliament, courts, and Charter of Rights and Freedoms and measuring up the modern understanding of human rights to our faith. This is all capped off with a look at what we can do to make a positive impact in the community and country where God has put us.
There are plenty of people out there who don't like the words "Christian" and "citizenship" to be used in the same sentence. That still doesn't mean that socially Conservative Christians should exclude themselves from the political life and let those whose religion is marxism, feminism, environmentalism reshape the nation as they see fit.
