Left, Right & Christ
Evangelical Faith in Politics
by Lisa Sharon Harper and D.C. Innes
Are we willing to have an open mind or will we keep the party line? In Left, Right & Christ, authors D.C Innes and Lisa Sharon Harper craft thought-provoking chapters on the issues that will have America talking for years to come.
"If this isn't a conversation starter for Christians, then nothing else will be." —Marvin Olasky

The co-authors of Left, Right & Christ wrestle with how people of the same faith can hold such drastically different political views.
Authors Harper & Innes are the first featured guests on the new Patheos Debate Blog. Check it out as they debate what kind of America we (as Christians) want to be.

This is a great resource to promote productive dialogue across the Christian political spectrum and I highly recommend it for churches.

Left, Right & Christ has staying power beyond the first read. Politics should not be about winning, about power for power's sake. It's about bringing power to bear on human problems to produce solutions for the common good. This book gives us a handy pickup, a quality refresher, to intelligently think through at a deeper level the things blaring through the media from people wanting to push our voting button.
By Jonathan Fitzgerald
The premise of the book itself requires both authors to do precisely what Wallis warns against. There is nary a mention in here that maybe—just maybe—a Christian view of politics isn’t left or right, but some other viewpoint entirely.

A new book shows us once again how Christians can share a Bible and share a Savior and yet differ starkly on social and political issues.

God doesn't care if we live in a Blue state, or a Red one. He could care less if we are far to the left or right of the right. The one thing he's going to ask is not how we voted in the last election, but who did we love along the way. What redemption did we offer one another?
By Anna Quinn
It is quite baffling to both Christian liberals and conservatives for other Christians, who hold the same fundamental beliefs, to come to such radically different conclusions on most issues, and Left, Right & Christ serves as both a sounding board and a “discussion starter.”
