Paul D. Miller, author of The Religion of American Greatness, has a long resume of service in the White House, the Pentagon, the CIA, and Georgetown University.

In his book We the Fallen People, historian Robert Tracy McKenzie takes an unflinching look at the nature of democracy throughout American history.

As a publishing house, IVP desires to speak thoughtfully and in a balanced but bold manner into questions on the integration of faith, discipleship, and politics. What constitutes the common good and building a just society—not only in election years, but every year? Books are vehicles for promoting liberty, for shedding light on darkness. In this article, former IVP publisher Jeff Crosby shows how in a time when many of us are distracted by clickbait and popular opinion, books still have a tremendous impact.
