We are living in an era where the cult of the expert enables the increasing encroachment of civil government into areas of cultural and societal life where it does not belong. This growing statism must be countered by a distinctly Christian response. But what should a Christian proposal for social order look like? In this book, Joe Boot critiques the world as it is today and provides the critical basis for a Christian response to the socio-political crisis of our time. Ruler of Kings is contextual and current, but its solutions are biblically rooted and therefore enduring.


Portions of this book are excerpted from other works, also by Joe Boot, and published by Ezra Press and the Ezra Institute for Contemporary Christianity:


- For Government: Towards a Christian View of authority (2020)

- For Politics: The Christian, the Church and the State (2021)

- For the Kingdom of God: a Scriptural Response to a Utopian Social Vision (2021)


Using rigorous theological, philosophical and historical analysis, the author challenges traditional Western church leaders' assumptions and responses to Christian participation in cultural, socio-economic and political life. In its place, he sets out a clearly articulated and scripturally grounded political vision.
