The Libertarian Christian Institute is proud to announce today that it will be the online home and hub for a new book on Christianity and liberty entitled Called to Freedom: Why You Can Be Christian and Libertarian. It is authored by six young men and women who have demonstrated their steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and are putting themselves out there to defend the cause of liberty. I have had the distinct honor of seeing the genesis of this project, working with them, and ultimately writing the foreword to this book.
Getting a book published is not the easy, and right now we are running an IndieGogo campaign where you can preorder the book and help make sure it gets into the hands of our fellow Christians who can benefit from it. Join me in supporting this effort, and help spread the word by sharing this post with your fellow Christians!
So, what exactly is in this book? Check out this short video and learn more below…
Do you consider yourself a libertarian and a Christian? If so, have you ever experienced a tension between your political philosophy and your faith?
You are not alone!Many of us have. In fact, that tension is so real that much of society tells us something must be wrong. There is an active debate among Christians about the role of libertarians and among libertarians about the role of Christians. Our main goals at the Libertarian Christian Institute are to engage these active debates, to help Christians learn to love their libertarian brethren, and to articulate how libertarianism is a consistent expression of Christian political thought.
If you, or someone you know, are currently working through what it means to be a libertarian Christian, we are excited to partner with six of our libertarian Christians friends to help articulate what it means to be “called to freedom.” This project is currently being funded through Indiegogo, which means the authors need your help!

What it this book about?
Written by six friends who all identify as libertarian Christians, this book explores the tension between libertarianism and Christianity and offers encouragement to people who find themselves caught between the two.

Being a libertarian can be a little lonely sometimes, because although our numbers are growing we aren't quite *that* big yet. Christian libertarians are an even rarer breed, so its good to know where to find them. Here are five ways you can get connected with other Christian libertarians online.
