Synopsis

How should Christians be faithful disciples in the political turbulence of Trump and Brexit?

Christopher J H Wright unpacks the Biblical theme of idolatry and connects it to discipleship in today's world. As Christians, we desperately need to name and expose the false gods and idols that we are tempted to bow down to - 'Here are your gods!'

The Bible challenges the idols of political power and nationalism. The Biblical story is filled with hope that the kingdom of God will ultimately triumph over all human empires. How then should we live as followers of Jesus, the Messiah, Saviour, Lord and King?

Part One is adapted from chapter 5 of Wright's The Mission of God, 'The Living God Confronts Idolatry'. Parts Two and Three bring the Bible to bear on contemporary politics in the UK and USA, and for all Christians seeking to make sense of the changing world we live in.
