Martin Bucer to Obama

“It would seem fitting to write for Your Majesty a little about the fuller acceptance and reestablishment of the Kingdom of Christ in your realm. Thus it may be better understood how salutary and necessary it is both for Your Majesty and all classes of men in his realm, thoughtfully, consistently, carefully, and tenaciously to work toward this goal, that Christ’s Kingdom may as fully as possible be accepted and hold sway over us.” (Bucer, De Regno Christi, 175-176)

  1. My problem with this was Bucer’s reliance on Plato’s Republic. Also, he seemed to be thinking of what might be possible for a city council (i.e. Strassburg). Not sure it would have translated as well on the part of Edward trying to micro-pastor the whole kingdom.

    These are vague memories, however.
