An Evangelical on the Left examines the place of faith in the public forum, focusing on the alliance between President George W. Bush and the political movement known as the Christian Right. Author Anna Waldherr is sharply critical of Bush Administration policies and ethics, making the case that Christian religious beliefs and Neo-Conservative political policy are fundamentally at odds. While biblical in outlook, An Evangelical on the Left addresses a variety of controversial topics with a fresh eye. These include abortion, poverty, homosexuality, racism, and the war in Iraq. Waldherr draws on historical references, legal precedents, economic analysis, and social commentary to make sense of the complex times in which we live. Seeking to bridge the divide between Left and Right, An Evangelical on the Left calls for tolerance and brotherhood. The book is uncompromising in relaying the Gospel message of love and forgiveness.
