An Evangelical Call to Civic Responsibility

"For three years, the National Association of Evangelicals has been quietly putting together a major document on civic engagement - or, in the vernacular, politics. The 12-page draft document represents the depth and breadth of evangelical thinking on the issue, and few evangelicals will find their views unrepresented. In large part, that's because the co-chairs for Evangelicals for Social Action's Ron Sider and the Institute on Religion and Democracy's Dianne Knippers generally represent the two ends of the spectrum of evangelicals' social concerns" (emphasis mine).

Earlier this week, Ted Olsen blogged on the Los Angeles Times scoring a copy of this draft and links to some other media that cover the document.

The NAE have made the document publicly available for all (PDF).
