Politics In The Bible

The Bible is fundamental to Western culture. Political philosophers from Hobbes, Locke, Montesquieu, and Rousseau to modern political theorists such as George H. Sabine, Leo Strauss, and Sheldon S. Wolin have drawn upon biblical examples. American political leaders, such as Thomas Paine, Abraham Lincoln, and William Jennings Bryan all drew heavily upon the Bible. Today, most contemporary politicians display less familiarity with Scripture although many proudly proclaim themselves to be born-again Christians. Politics in the Bible has a simple goal: to help readers to think critically about how the Bible illuminates understanding of justice, leadership, and politics. For a political scientist, there are great advantages to studying the Bible. Students of the Bible have short texts to analyze, but they have a history of two thousand years of Jewish and Christian scholarly discussion. In that tradition, Paul R. Abramson analyzes stories drawn from eighteen of the thirty-nine books of the Hebrew Bible and fifteen of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament. Abramson argues that the Bible is a book that should be read even by those who do not believe it has any transcendent significance. One can choose to read it as the revealed word of God, as a source of Western morality, as a compilation of interesting stories, poetry, and history, or as a work of great literature. Although this book discusses selected stories that have political implications, it also considers parts that have literary merit. This unusual volume may stimulate new thinking about the Bible as a source of insight into political ideas.

A retired high school teacher, Geraldean McMillin now lives in Jefferson City, Missouri, having moved there in 1956 after the death of her husband. She attended Lincoln University from 1962 to 1970, receiving a BS degree in secondary education and an MA in history. She began her teaching career and first taught history, government, and sociology, after which she taught economics for 16 years. Retiring in 1992, she has traveled to Antarctica once and multiple times to every other continent. In 1999 she authored a book, Wrestling with Life: The Wisdom and Wit of a Woman Wrestler, about her grandmother, a professional wrestler in the 1920s and 1930s. Currently she is beginning to study the sciences to fill a neglected gap in her education. She is the mother of three, a grandmother of six, and a great-grandmother of three. McMillin grew up in the Missouri Ozarks during the Great Depression. Her family was very poor, and life was difficult. Until she started school at age four, she had no books to read, not even the Bible. But her memories are not about being poor; they are about the abundance of love that was ever-present in her family. Despite the fact that religion was unimportant to her parents, they never objected when McMillin began her lifelong search to understand God. That quest led to the writing of 75 Years in the Wilderness: A Christian Agnostic's Search for Answers. 75 Years in the Wilderness: A Christian Agnostic's Search for Answers, written from a Christian perspective, is about a doubter's passionate search for absolutes that begins in early childhood. McMillin, born into a non-religious family and wanting to know why God allows pain, turns to churches for answers, but finds only contentious diversity. Needing to broaden her search, she begins studying canonical as well as non-canonical Hebrew and Christian writings and adding history for context. Reading many kinds of secular and religious literature, conversing with people of many persuasions, and visiting diverse cultures around the world brings her many more insights from which to choose. Again and again life brings experiences that dramatically change her understanding of the sacred. In time, McMillin comes to cherish the doubts that bring joy and excitement to her unending search, but becomes content to be one of those who know they do not know (i.e., an agnostic).
