    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 faith in God aside?

    Overall

    How long I have been feeling just what this book proclaims. Wallis' book is the beginning of how we can re-integrate faith into politics without merging church and state.

    The theme of the book is most certainly politics and how a person's personal faith plays in their life lived. Certainly if a person of faith also has integrity, their faith will be a part of their whole life. He writes that a heresy of the previous century was that faith became intensely personal. His corrrective for this is that "God is personal, but never private."

    The repetative nature of the book is important, I believe, to the complexity of the subject Wallis is dealing with. He tells the reader what he's going to say, then he says it, then he tell the reader what he said. I found it to be a good book in the sense that its purpose is clear and lots of examples and support for the argument were given.

    I would have liked to have written this book. Of course, I would have written it differently, but nonetheless it is a necessary voice which counters the left, the right and really the middle, too. Wallis' is on the side of the Gospel and not any political agenda.

    Refreshing, to say the least.
