Does religion have a place in politics? Anyone following current events knows that there exists a tremendous debate on the influence of religion, especially the Christian religion, on elections, the creation of laws, and the interpretation of these laws by judges. But these debates often focus on a few narrowly defined topics, rarely acknowledging the history, breadth, and diversity of Christian activism in modern political culture across the globe. "The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics" reveals the global reach and relevance of Christian political activities, examining how individuals, reform groups, and political organisations have employed Christian principles in participating in politics at a local, national, and global scale. The encyclopedia examines Christian political involvement from the American and French Revolutions to the present day. It focuses on those prominent people, organisations, and reform groups - Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox - that have had a significant impact on politics. Entries include individuals, political parties, and organisations. With an overview essay and a general bibliography of works suitable for further research, this encyclopedia provides an excellent starting point for understanding the profound influence of Christianity in the world today.
