Jim Wallis takes a look at walking the middle path of politics and religion, neither a fundamentalist, or a toe-the-line democrat, he argues that if American politics is to clean up and straighten out, then religious values are a necessary perspective to take. He argues against both fundamentalist Christians and pure secular society. I found this book really interesting and even inspiring - to see that religion in politics can have an impact without being dogmatic.
Jim Wallis would definitely be called a Disciple if Jesus were here today (which he is, we just don't see him with our eyes).
Jim has said things almost verbatim that I have said to "Christians". This book follows, what would Jesus do, not the trite "pull yourself up by your bootstraps mentality, preached and voiced by many who do have it "all"".
Way to go Jim. I know the Lord is smiling.
Very much a Christian (as in "true Christian" - back to its roots) perspective.
