dc.description.abstract There are many Christian voices in the political realm; the loudest often bring the conservative voices, which have captured the most media attention. However, Christian political voices range from social conservatives to social progressives and from libertarianists to socialists. The following thesis elaborates on the views of eight Christian articulators and highlights their propensities towards justice and/or moral cultural issues in addition to their views on the appropriate role of the church in public life. Also, the work demonstrates congruence between the Christian and political principles of widely varying Christian political views, and suggests paths towards achieving a unifying discourse.
