    I don’t actually want to read this book, but I did enter the Goodreads Giveaway for it, because 1) know thy enemy, and 2) at least it’ll keep one copy from being released into the wild. Wish me (bad) luck.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for an honest review. This book offers a lot of insight and offers scripture and life experience and for me this book offers hope. I remember feeling lost when God was being kicked out of everything and today our country is facing a lot of challenges.

This book is easy to read and understand and for me, it cuts out the noise and chaos and I can see that I am not alone, there are so many like me. So many things have changed and at times it feels like we are getting beaten down. The book gives us examples of some of the things that have taken place. I read the Bible and talk to God but with the churches being shut down, you don't have that connection right now with other people. That is why I was meant to see this book because this book gave me a connection to others so that now I can see hope rather than the chaos and noise the media has been giving me. I can open my eyes and see others wanting God brought back and it is like a curtain has been opened enough so I can see the path to get me out of the chaos and to the places God is allowed and where there are people trying to His word back to us. A book that was meant to be written and read by many over and over again. We together can make a difference.

    Great read from a wise man with a solid biblical foundation. Too many Christians putting their focus on an earthly king, ruler, president and not enough focus on the eternal king...a great reminder to keep our eyes set on the things above

    Rating 3.5 stars Jesus Politics is about recognizing the work of Jesus all around you and about acting on that truth. Phil Robertson is a well known name and he pretty much comes as he is. I like that about him. He is not for the likes, popularity, and politically correct. If anything is anything but. He is not perfect but he is grounded in his faith and to me that is attractive.

The social aspect of politics keeps many Christians on the progressive left. However, and I agree that we should not give government the power because of the social deficient we currently have. It does not change the heart of people but only enslaves us to the almighty tax dollar. We are slowly losing free speech, freedom of religion, which leads to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Jesus Politics come in two parts. The voting booth and sharing Jesus. Each chapter ends with a Kingdom Manifesto. The problem we are currently facing and the solution we have in the Manifesto of the true King and what that looks like in action. Our vote does matter in kingdom matters so prayerfully consider. Does it give life? Does it tie in with the word of God? Does it make God known? This book will clarify some of these issues. You might not agree but God encourages us to reason. We will be held accountable. A special thank you to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

    Love Phil Robertson. He is unapologetic and grounded in his faith. An interesting read on Biblical principles and modern politics.. Obviously this book has a targeted audience but I would encourage anyone interested in the future of our country and our people to read. He offers some wonderful insights. Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to review.

    I read this as a challenge to myself—to deeply engage with an ideology that I vehemently disagree with. This book lays out the Christian nationalist belief system. And when Robertson says “the soul of America” he means that literally— as if America is a person who is lost and sinful. Definitely not the same meaning of “soul” that was seen as threatened by Trump’s lies & incitement. This other definition of soul represents the values of our country— its openness, opportunity, inclusiveness, equal I read this as a challenge to myself—to deeply engage with an ideology that I vehemently disagree with. This book lays out the Christian nationalist belief system. And when Robertson says “the soul of America” he means that literally— as if America is a person who is lost and sinful. Definitely not the same meaning of “soul” that was seen as threatened by Trump’s lies & incitement. This other definition of soul represents the values of our country— its openness, opportunity, inclusiveness, equality & compassion. Which all sound like Christian values, right? But they’re not what Robertson goes on about. I think this is the key point and we haven’t even opened the book yet— Robertson isn’t espousing American values, but rather a subset that seeks to divide the country into “real”—white, rural, Christian, “simple”— Americans and the rest who, by this definition, are delusional sinners who are a threat to the country. We’re not even talking about the same America, or the same values, though the words used are the same. It’s code, a shadow language saying the opposite. This alternate reality embraces by Christian nationalists like Robertson is what terrifies & enrages me as a practicing Christian. Self-righteousness is a sin, too— Pharisees. In the same way that most of this ideology (wearing the duck-hunting camo of Christian righteousness) is Old Testament in tone, it’s view of America is also a fundamentalist & literalist one. This ideology which Robertson spends an entire book rationalizing comes after squinting at the Bible and looking at America through the wrong end of a telescope. My frustration is that I believe Robertson to be a genuinely Christian man. He mentions the virtue of helping out struggling neighbors, and engaging with troubled souls. But this isn’t a Christian book at heart, it’s a political one. Those genuine examples of lived discipleship are rare & only early in the book. They don’t come up again after diving into the ideology of Christian nationalism and that is exactly my point. They don’t because they have nothing in common with it. This is a man trying to shoehorn his religion into his politics. And it can’t work. Christian nationalist ideology—prevalent among evangelicals but also found in any conservative Christian strain, including the Catholicism I profess—declares America was founded on Christian principles (implicitly white European) & must be restored to a biblical-based government. It denies pluralism, self-determination, diversity & freedom to any non-Christians. And most offensively to me, it attempts to do so with a contorted & selective interpretation of the message of love & mercy preached by Jesus. And perhaps even worse, I don’t think Robertson actually likes Trump. He rarely mentions Trump by name. In the cult of personality Republicans have created around Trump, support of the ideology is identical to support of the man. But not for Robertson. He doesn’t laud Trump for his godliness & goodness in the grotesque way that many other evangelicals have/do. However, Robertson declares himself a Republican & spends the book justifying the Trumpist agenda. This dissonance just points out the contortions Robertson has to put himself through to land where does. To be for Trump’s flagrantly cruel & selfish principles but against the man himself? It’s like saying you love the Bible, but don’t believe in God. Robertson approaches the glaring contradiction only twice. Trump wasn’t calling the tiki-torch-carrying racists in Charlottesville “fine people,” in Robertson’s opinion. Apparently he just meant the other racists there— the ones without the torches. He recognizes parenthetically— as he blasts liberals for their “hate & vitriol,” that Trump spews it regularly on Twitter and then ... nothing. The whole question goes begging here, in a faux-honest, half-assed nod to reality. The book is all the more pathetic for breaking its narrow focus on its chosen alternate reality in these cynical attempts to appear objective. So the book ends up as a heap of self-righteous & dishonest bullshit. A rationalization giving Christians permission to be anti-gay, anti-intellectual, anti-democratic, anti-govt, bigoted, climate change deniers. The very worst of Christian nationalist intentions. Wrapped up in the golly-gee, river rat, down-home veneer that appears to confer unassailable moral authority. Use small words & zero-sum simplifications and it must be true. Robertson, with a veneer of folksy down-home wisdom and the repeated lame proclamation that he “has done the research,” fails completely to justify contemporary right-wing intolerance and ignorance through the idea of the “kingdom” of God on earth. Jesus politics, rather than those of Man. I give his effort one star for the clarity he provides on how to implement the Christian fundamentalist equivalent of sharia law in America. Because he says openly, this vision is not about democracy—it is about everyone being made to live under the edicts of his belief system alone. He writes a chapter defending gun rights by saying explicitly that guns don’t kill people, hate does. There’s nothing in the Bible defending the right to bear arms so he refers instead to the 2nd Commandment, er, Amendment as the sacred source. Through God’s grace alone, he does not take at a stab at defending the xenophobic anti-immigrant rhetoric of his party of choice. He just ignores it instead. Of course. Having to confront how that explicitly contradicts his Jesus’s teachings would dilute the righteous certainty & performative moral clarity he wears like a camo ball cap. So he’s not defending Trump, you see, just everything he cynically represents to the gullible masses. So it’s ok then? Buff out the cruelty, the vulgarity, and the sociopathic ticks and polish it up with Jesus wax—there we go. Ready to cruise down Main Street America on a Friday night, with our God Guns & Trump bumper sticker and wearing our dress waders. As American, and Christian, as apple pie wrapped in the Stars & Stripes. Lord forgive them for they know not what they are doing.

    I was hoping for a LOT better. Anyone who believes the US was founded on Christian principles is completely overlooking the first two centuries of legal slavery in this country while also making Christian principles look awful. His views on guns, abortion, environmentalism and other topics are simplistic and predictable. To be honest I found this to be a waste of time, and that from a gun toting Christian outdoorsman.

    My fault? Possibly. I love the Duck Dynasty Series and I've read most of the family's books. "Jesus Politics" I expected was going to explain how to be supportive in your government while loving Jesus and using bible principles. Instead, this book was opinionated (no surprise with Phil) and it explains why he believes Republican is the only choice. Ugh. My fault? Possibly.

    Clear, concise, articulate not what the average American would think of the Duck Commander. For sure, Phil laces his prose with Louisiana humor, verbiage, and perspective but these communicate well. Phil does not advocate for either major party or any particular politician but he does not equivocate on capitalism versus socialism and constitutional principles over post modern expediency. He is clearly Jesus centered and uses the Bible to make his points on values and positions on specific issues Clear, concise, articulate not what the average American would think of the Duck Commander.

He is clearly Jesus centered and uses the Bible to make his points on values and positions on specific issues. His arguments are well articulated and grounded on faith which he acts upon in his own life. This is more than just a manifesto on supporting and voting for candidates who best exemplify Christian principles; this is a manifesto on living a Christian life within the framework of the American experiment.

    Thank you for the advanced copy in exchange for a review. I love Phil and his family and have in the past thoroughly enjoyed the show. This book is a must I feel for anyone living in America. I found Jesus Politics very informative, well written, well researched and well layed out. I love that he gives us references to scriptures, completely backing up everything he is saying. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and got more insight into his character.

    “Jesus Politics” is Phil Robertson’s exposition of his formula for political positions based on Biblical principles. Part I consisting of nine chapters focusing on specific issues such as freedom of religion, the ability of individuals to use their resources in accord with the will of King Jesus, right to life, gun ownership, environmentalism, family, healthcare and, finally the role of mercy and forgiveness. The three chapters of Part II explore how to share Jesus politics in everyday life.

Part I consisting of nine chapters focusing on specific issues such as freedom of religion, the ability of individuals to use their resources in accord with the will of King Jesus, right to life, gun ownership, environmentalism, family, healthcare and, finally the role of mercy and forgiveness. The three chapters of Part II explore how to share Jesus politics in everyday life. Each chapter has its text followed by a Kingdom Manifesto that identifies a problem and proposes the Manifesto of the King and The Manifesto in Action. Robertson appears to draw from a Protestant tradition that applies Biblical verses to specific social and political issues. Coming from a Catholic background I lean more toward drawing general principles from Scripture that are helpful in guiding our lives, but I find much to admire in this tome. I respect Robertson’s adherence to the principles that he finds at the core of Truth without an inclination to compromise truth for the sake of reaching common ground. His accounts of Miss Kay’s personal actions to aid mothers’ in their choice of life are inspiring. Stories of what Phil has done to assist neighbors and those who sought his help are Beatitudes in real life. I remember an occasion in which Phil made a statement that was attacked as hate speech. Fair-minded readers of this work will recognize Phil as committed to Biblical Truth which, at its heart, is love, not hate. The chapter that I find most touching is “Of Mercy and Forgiveness”. “We’re to take a hard line on sin…how do we do this,? Not through name-calling or by lording the past over our opponents. Instead… we’re to be quick to extend mercy and forgiveness, slow to judge.” So often we, and others, seek to use “decades old dirt…that might give us an advantage in an upcoming election.” This is a call to stand for the right, hoping to convince our opponents, not to destroy them, because that is Jesus’ way. To Bible-thumping rednecks Phil is writing what they are thinking. For others of varying persuasions, I suggest the phrase I have often seen on a court website, Audi Alteram Partem, hear the other side. You may find something with which you agree. You may gain an appropriate respect for those with whom you disagree and you may learn how to engage in reasoned discourse.

    I thought this might be more of a biography with politics thrown in but that is in a different book. This one is an unabashed political commentary. This was published in august of 2020, just a few months before Election Day. It felt like a push for a Republican vote, despite not once saying that.

While I agree with his viewpoint wholeheartedly, it felt a bit contrived and nothing was particularly new to me. It also took the assumption that we are still living in a democracy that provides opportunity to change the nation’s course with our vote. I do agree that we, as believers, have the responsibility to vote and stand firm in the face of evil. A valid challenge with the sweet reminder that we are called to follow Christ, not any man.

    I fell in love with the Roberston family since I discovered the Duck Dynasty series on A&E so long ago. I loved the down home message, the reverence (even though at the time I was not a Christian), the solid family message and the hysterical situations.

This book's title really intrigued me, because it was economics and politics that drew me to becoming a Christian. (That's another story.) So I was very interested in hearing the Robertson patriarch's take on it. As a member of the "choir," I can't say that it greatly expanded my already 'on-boardness' with the overall message; yet, it in no way detracted from it. I felt that Mr. Robertson was spot on in several areas (i.e. Ch. 4: On Gun Ownership in the Kingdom of Love; Ch. 7: For the American Family; Ch. 11: Changing America Through Kingdom Living); but in other areas like environmentalism and healthcare I felt he fell short. I think my main concern with these chapters is that they didn't explain and confront sufficiently the overarching Big Government takeover policies that are at play in these difficult, divisive areas; and, the solutions he proposed—while thought-provoking and worth further discussion—were not entirely compelling to me. Robertson is effective in living out Jesus Politics in his life as are his family members. The example he sets and the reported transformations people have who have met and worked with him are amazing. For these reasons alone, he is a voice worth listening to. He walks his talk and talks his walk—and that could be an example to us all.

This is a book I would highly recommend for the Christian that is unsure on how to take a political stance, what the issues are, and where, as a Christian, should you line up? Because this is a HUGE problem facing Christians today. Christians simply don't care, or don't think they SHOULD care about politics. They're confused by all the information that social media so quickly flashes in our faces (and Facebook now facts checks for you, so you don't even have to go looking for facts yourself! Isn't that nice of them to direct your content like that?). I fear many Christians have just become plain uneducated when it comes to politics, and that is inexcusable. This book will give you a quick breakdown, and contains references in the back for you to follow up and look into for yourself. Highly recommend!!!

In addition, Phil challenges us to live our faith and share about Jesus. He challenges us; not the government to help people. Phil is transparent about what he believes and why.

I was not aware of how the Brady Bill was put into place. I found that interesting, amongst many other items Phil shared. Each chapter addresses a problem, recommends a solution and ends with a Kingdom Manifesto. He encourages you to pray, research the candidates and vote. It brings hope. And personally I am thrilled that Christians are speaking out. I received this book from Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review.

    The majority of the book was simply a rant of Phil’s political views with little substantive arguments to support his views. Many of his points were simply a wishing for the nostalgic “ideal” of the past, back to the good old days. Overall the book does not add much to the dialogue of Jesus and Politics. I do applaud the Robertson’s for their living the Kingdom life out in their local context and helping the disadvantaged in their community, of which he shared numerous examples.

Toward the end of the book he begins sermonizing and made some good points but immediately contradicts himself. He quotes Mark 10:42,43 that the rulers lord it over then but Jesus came to serve and that we should follow Jesus example. But he then immediately states that we should fight (ie. lord it over others) when politicians go against our beliefs. So which is it, should we fight those we disagree with or should we serve them? Lord it over them or Love them as Jesus loved us and gave Himself up for us?

    I've never seen Duck Dynasty, nor am I much of an "outdoorsman", but I am attracted to Phil's straightforward approach to sharing his thoughts in a way that demonstrates his Christian worldview. Be forewarned, if you're not a follower of Jesus you will find this book highly offensive, but that should be no surprise since Jesus even stated, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. " (John 15:18). In our modern world the Truth is very offensive to most non-believers.

There's nothing super earth shattering in his book, but he outlines some basic premises for putting this world on a path closer to God's commands. Essentially, his "manifesto" is centered on voting for politicians who adhere to Biblical principles, which is quite a challenge in our modern political system. A question all followers of Jesus need to ask before their ballot is cast is who will best defend the beliefs and freedoms of those who are Jesus followers.
