Clarifying the Issues

Clarifying the Issues

By David Swartz

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.

Finding Common Ground

Finding Common Ground

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.”
