Jesus For President

David Swanson, of Out of Ur, has spent three blog post doing a very thorough review of Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw's new book Jesus for President.

I loved the quote he quoted from the book in this last review:

Church father Ignatius said that if our church is not marked by caring for the poor, the oppressed, and the hungry, then we are guilty of heresy- and a new reformation is long overdue. Some of us who were pretty discontent with how the church was embezzling money belonging to the poor to build buildings and pay staff began to dream again what it would look like to reimagine tithes and offerings, which God intended to be instruments of a redistributive economy… and we came up with the something beautiful and small- the relational tithe.
So here are the three links to the review, and a link to the book on Amazon:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
The Book
