Books I referenced in Sunday's sermon

I mentioned two books in my sermon yesterday that helped me think about Sunday's message:

1. The American Creed: A Biography of the Declaration of Independence by Forrest Church--it increased my already considerable appreciation for this document

2. Jesus and the Victory of God by N. T. Wright--one of the better Historical Jesus books written by a first-rate scholar and a person of faith--his perspective on "render unto Caesar. . . render unto God" is what I worked from in terms of everything is God's, especially our allegiance--see Psalm 96
