This book has mapped out the relationship between the Church and State from the setting of the Greco-Roman world. It also beautifully brought to light the socio-political context of the Roman Empire. In the socio-political milieu of the text, it skillfully
unearths Paul's exhortation to Christians to be subservient to rulers and authorities acknowledging the sovereignty of God.
This book will be immensely influential and effective in developing the perception of religion and politics, the involvement of the Church in political dealings and the prophetic role of the Church for the overall well-being and development of the society
especially for the people of Mizoram.
