Newberg, Ore. (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
A new list of experts published by the Christians in Political Science organization is now available online, offering a range of political expertise to journalists, policy-makers and other opinion leaders.
The Christians in Political Science Experts Directory covers topics as diverse as Africa, European politics, American political institutions and public policy. It is now available online at christiansinpoliticalscience.com/experts.
“Our hope is that journalists and others will use the list when they need a thoughtful Christian perspective about issues of public concern,” said Mark David Hall, president of Christians in Political Science and George Fox University’s Herbert Hoover Distinguished Professor of Politics.
For instance, Hall notes, if a reporter sought a Christian perspective on the use of military force, he or she may contact Peter Feaver, director of the Triangle Institute for Security Studies at Duke University and author of “Armed Servants: Agency, Oversight, and Civil-Military Relations;” “Guarding the Guardians: Civilian Control of Nuclear Weapons in the United States;” and numerous other works.
For a Christian opinion on school vouchers, David Armor, professor of public policy at George Mason University and author of “Competition in Education,” is available.
Among other experts on the list is Carol Swain, professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University. Author of “Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress” and coeditor of “Contemporary Voices of White Nationalism in America,” Swain is an excellent resource for anyone looking for a Christian perspective on immigration or race relations, Hall said.
Other experts are available to offer informed Christian perspectives about abortion, the death penalty, religious liberty, trade policy, electoral politics and other topics.
“As Feaver, Armor and Swain illustrate, the list offers access to both a Christian perspective on various issues and straightforward political analysis,” Hall said.
The directory can be used as a resource for a Christian view on the news, or simply, an expert one. Included in each expert’s profile is a description of their expertise, a brief background and contact information. All experts have an earned doctorate and multiple publications in their fields of expertise.
Founded in 1991, Christians in Political Science aims to encourage students of politics to integrate their Christian faith into their research and writing. The organization recognizes that Christians of good faith may disagree about how Christianity should inform professional, political and other activities. A major goal of CPS is to encourage discussion of these matters.
