Political Thought: A Student’s Guide by Hunter Baker (Book Blurbs)

political thoughtBaker provides a succinct and helpful introduction to political thought. He includes brief surveys of major political philosophers such as Hobbes, Mill, Locke, and Rousseau, as well as surveying some key political themes like justice, order, and freedom. He does an excellent job of surveying the role of government generally and specific Christian contribution to government. This is an excellent introduction in both clarity and scope and I highly recommend it to any who wish to foray into the field of political philosophy.

And if you missed it and are interested in the topic of government, you should read Christian Lingner’s essay, “Virtue Ethics: The Dilemma of Postmodern Democracy.”
