       Embryonic stem-cell research. Poverty. Crime. What is a 
       faithful Christian response? The God of the Bible is 
       unquestionably a God of justice. Yet Christians have had 
       their differences as to how human government and the 
       church should bring about a just social order. Although 
       Christians share many deep and significant theological 
       convictions, differences that threaten to divide them have
       often surrounded the matter of how the church collectively
       and Christians individually ought to engage the public 
       square. What is the mission of the church? What is the 
       purpose of human government? How ought they to be related 
       to each other? How should social injustice be redressed? 
       The five noted contributors to this volume answer these 
       questions from within their distinctive Christian 
       theological traditions, as well as responding to the other
       four positions. Through the presentations and ensuing 
       dialogue we come to see more clearly what the differences 
       are, where their positions overlap and why they diverge. -
