'Christians have a marvelous opportunity to be good news people. We can be a force for peace, justice, and reconciliation in every land. Differences do not have to become divisions. Instead, they can be woven into a tapestry of religious variety that shows the world that God is good and God is great. My hope is that reading this book will contribute to your wanting to join this journey.'
-from the Preface
In recent years, argues the author, religious and political dialogue in the United States has been hijacked by the so-called religious right, a coalition of conservative Christian leaders who purport to speak for all Christians but whose politicized brand of Christianity excludes many and falls short of the true gospel message. Jan Linn argues for a bigger Christianity, one big enough to embrace all of God's people with a message of inclusion and acceptance.
In his passionate argument, Linn recovers the prophetic voice of a faith that cannot be reduced to a single nation, race, or class and echoes a call for justice, integrity, and deep faithfulness in the political landscape of contemporary America.
Jan G. Linn is co-pastor of Spirit of Joy Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has served as chaplain at Lynchburg College in Virginia and director of field education at Lexington Theological Seminary in Kentucky. He is author of more than ten books for clergy and laity.
