The 3 Best Books on Christian Nationalism to Consider Reading


Lord’s Library editors compiled this list of the best books on Christian nationalism for exploring this topic.

Christian nationalism, which can be defined as the belief that Christianity should play a central role in the governance and identity of a nation, is a topic of significant debate. Bible-believing Christians hold strict theological beliefs and adhere to a literal interpretation of the Bible, making Christian nationalism an appealing theme. However, perspectives vary greatly among individuals, making this a potentially controversial topic.

There are several key Bible verses that proponents of Christian nationalism might cite. See 2 Chronicles 7:14, Proverbs 14:34, Psalm 33:12, Matthew 5:13-16, and Romans 13:1-7 below:

  • 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
  • Proverbs 14:34: “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
  • Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”
  • Matthew 5:13-16: “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
  • Romans 13:1-7: “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.”

Remember that when evaluating the best books on Christian nationalism, it’s important to use discernment. That is because many secularists writing on the topic are hostile to the idea, which becomes a bias. While Lord’s Library also has a bias (Editor’s note: We are a Christian resource hub after all!), our editors only included titles here written by authors with a Christian worldview.

Note: We only included the best books on Christian nationalism with a 4-star or better ranking and a minimum of 50 reviews.

Christian Nationalism: A Biblical Guide to Taking Dominion and Discipling Nations

Author/Publisher: Andrew Torba and Andrew Isker

From the publisher: “Christian Nationalism is a spiritual, political, and cultural movement comprised of Christians who are working to build a parallel Christian society grounded in a Biblical worldview. This book is a guide for Christians to take dominion and disciple their families, churches, and all nations for the glory of Jesus Christ our King.”

The Case for Christian Nationalism

Author/Publisher: Stephen Wolfe

From the publisher: “The grace of the gospel does not eliminate our geography, our people, and our neighbors. Instead, it restores us to pursue local needs and local leadership freely and without apology. If you want to be able to answer the political debate raging today, you must understand the arguments in The Case for Christian Nationalism.”

Mere Christendom

Author/Publisher: Douglas Wilson

From the publisher: “In Mere Christendom by Douglas Wilson, seasoned Christian author and pastor, we confront the prevailing secularism in modern culture and its impact on our Christian witness. While some evangelical elites warn against Christian Nationalism and theocracy, Wilson argues that secularism itself poses the greatest threat.”
