Summary

God Is Not a Republican ... Or a Democrat

Since when did believing in God and having moral values make you pro-war, pro-rich, and solely pro-Republican? And since when did promoting and pursuing a progressive social agenda with a concern for economic security, health care, and educational opportunity mean you had to put your faith in God aside? Jim Wallis argues that America's separation of church and state does not require banishing moral and religious values from the public square. In fact, the very survival of America's social fabric depends on such values and vision to shape our politics -- a dependence the nation's founders recognized. God's Politics inspires us to hold our political leaders and policies accountable by integrating our deepest moral convictions into our nation's public life.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Harper San Francisco, which originally planned to publish Jim Wallis's book God's Politics: Why the Right Gets it Wrong, and the Left Doesn't Get It, in April, has decided to crash publish it for inauguration week due to the expected media response. During the first week of sales, the Sojourners founder will be featured on The O'Reilly Factor, Chris Matthews, NPR's Fresh Air and PBS's Charlie Rose, as well as appearing live for four hours of ABC's inaugural coverage with Peter Jennings. Wallis's book speaks about the need for "a fuller, deeper, and richer conversation about religion in public life" and offers a much-needed corrective to strident, conservative Christian voices in politics. Left-leaning Christians who believe that war and the economy are significant moral issues have found an articulate and passionate spokesman in Jim Wallis. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
