God's Politics: A Brief Review
I am very happy that Christian democrats finally feel like they have a voice in the moral dialogue of our country, with the help of this book assuring them that they are not alone. I admire the fact that the author believes that the fight on poverty should hold just as many of our thoughts as the fight on abortion.
But, the left and right in this country are still divided as to what is the BEST way to alleviate these problems. The author, Jim Wallis, argues that the rich in this country should pay more taxes in order to sponsor government-based initiatives for these goals.
But, many on the right believe that this is unconstitutional.
The author does not make a biblically convincing case for the ideas he presents to solve these social woes, he just makes a good case that God cares about them. Perhaps that's enough?
