The Voting Booth: A new vision for Christian engagement in a post-Christian culture

by Skye Jethani

How should a Christian relate to the culture? For generations, Christians have been told to either escape the culture to avoid its ungodliness, or to aggressively engage the culture by seeking power and control over it. But are those a Christian’s only options? The Voting Booth presents a third path for a new generation of Christians seeking to love both God and their neighbor.

Written as a fictional dialogue between Christian, a confused voter, and three spirits of cultural engagementâ??Exodus, Exile, and Incarnationâ??The Voting Booth addresses many of the questions being asked by those struggling to follow Christ in our post-Christian age like:
-How do I respond to those who view Christian faith as oppressive?
-Why has Christianity become so political?
-What role does fear have in Christian cultural engagement?
-How should I interact with neighbors of other faiths?
-Have Christians lost the “Culture War”?
-How should I think about voting as a Christian?
-What is the role of the Church in the culture?
With engaging writing and surprising twists, The Voting Booth will challenge your assumptions and leave you with a new way of imagining your place in the culture.

What others are saying about “The Voting Booth”

“As an immigrant-turned-citizen facing only my second chance to vote in a presidential election, I am troubled by the options presented. Opinions from Christians abound, complete with blogs and Bible verses, but no clear path emerges. Skye’s allegory tale succinctlyâ?? if also slightly simplisticallyâ?? represents the two dominant paradigms of Christian response: the call to escape, and the call to engage. He then offers a third perspective rooted in the incarnation. While the tale stops short of instruction, it is abounding in wisdom. This is an accessible read that provides a thoughtful way to name and evaluate the subconscious grids that undergird our approach to political engagement or disengagement. Best of all, it offers us a way to reflect on our perspective, posture, and purpose in a Christ-shaped way.”
-Glenn Packiam, Pastor at New Life Downtown

“Skye Jethani is one of the most clear-headed, sober voices writing on faith and culture today. The Voting Booth raises questions many Christians wrestle with and provides answers that challenge and delight. In a time of political unrest and cultural upheaval, we can’t afford to ignore what this book has to say.”
– Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus is Better Than You Imagined; contributing writer for The Atlantic

“In a creative and compelling way, Skye Jethani has written yet another book that pushes the American church in the right direction. His uncanny ability to put his finger up to the wind and chart the right direction forward is a huge help to our community as we navigate the increasingly treacherous waters of the secular west.”
– John Mark Comer, pastor for teaching and vision at Bridgetown Church and author of Loveology.

“In The Voting Booth, Skye Jethani beautifully crafts a dialogue between â??Christian’ and three personified postures we can take toward our culture. Eye-opening and thought provoking, Skye clearly illuminates the dominant but destructive attitudes that have dominated the American church for the last 100 years, and then shines a light on a better way. Highly recommended!”
– Phil Vischer, creator of VeggieTales, What’s In The Bible, and The Phil Vischer Podcast.

Shelter

by Robin Merrill

Until she ran out of gas in the small Maine town of Mattawooptock. Mattawoopwhat? What on earth is God thinking?

Inner Peace, Outer Success: The Reintegration System: Spiritual Growth, Healing, Solving Problems and Achieving Goals with Cutting-Edge Mind Techniques

by Nebo D. Lukovich

Dear friends! Here is an exclusive opportunity to get this groundbreaking book while it’s FREE (promotional offer ends August 18th, so hurry)! You won’t regret it.

Are you ready to make some permanent changes within yourself and your external world?

Do you believe it’s possible to free yourself from suffering, or, at a minimum, significantly increase your overall happiness? Are you ready to heal yourself and others? Can you imagine fulfilling your dreams in reality? How about transcending your own reactive mind in order to achieve final liberation?

All of this is possible, but requires your determined effort.

You won’t find empty promises in this book, only practical guidance. You alone are responsible for your life, and you alone must do the personal self-work in order to attain these goals. We will give you the tools… are you ready to take them?

At the beginning of this revolutionary book you will find several quick and easy mind techniques designed to bring immediate results. Good for initial practice, this section is a great starting point for the casual user, warming you up for the deeper work to come.

We then delve into more complex methods, which teach you how to achieve profound and lasting transformation. You will get acquainted with a new approach to meditation and mindfulness, learn safe ways for deep healing of both yourself and others, and explore comprehensive exercises with real-life examples for attaining goals.

Whether you are looking to untie your most rigid problems, are striving for long-term physical and mental peace, or are simply looking to accomplish your biggest aspirations, you may be surprised at the kind of results you’re capable of.

You probably won’t find methods like this anywhere else, as many of them are 100% brand new. However, all of them rely on several well-known spiritual and scientific viewpoints. For example, one of these principles is that our external world is but a mirror of our inner being, which leads us to a very practical attitude: everyone is completely responsible for their own life. Another viewpoint, widely used in contemporary psychological methodologies, is that all apparently negative inner structures have a genuinely positive origin and purpose. Therefore: we must not fight any perceived negativity within us – we should face it, accept it, transform it and re-integrate it. These and other basic postulates are effectively employed in all methods and approaches presented in the book.

Again – you will have to put in some effort. Progress can’t come into your life on its own. You can learn and grow, using these techniques to remove or transform mind content without any risk of forgetting valuable life lessons, or loss of maturity from your past. You will be able to control all your thoughts, emotions, sensations, traumas, goals – sometimes even illnesses – pointing them in the direction of success and personal growth. This robust and multifaceted tool, called the Reintegration System, will give you a straightforward step-by-step opportunity to do so.

The main strength of the system is that it covers almost all areas of personal development: spiritual growth, meditation, problem-solving, healing, interpersonal relations, comprehensive personality integration, goal completion… however you decide to use it. All approaches are mutually complementary, ready to work together to help get you where you want to be.

Join us on this new journey of personal transformation and spiritual development, and start feeling better NOW!
