Item Description...
Amid all the buzz of politics and elections, Jesus for President is a refreshing reminder that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in the Jesus who gave his life for us. Politics for ordinary radicals who want to love the world into the kingdom of God.

Publishers Description
Jesus for President is a radical manifesto to awaken the Christian political imagination, reminding us that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in Jesus and the incarnation of the peculiar politic of the church as a people 'set apart' from this world.In what can be termed lyrical theology, Jesus for President poetically weaves together words and images to sing (rather than dictate) its message. It is a collaboration of Shane Claiborne's writing and stories, Chris Haw's reflections and research, and Chico Fajardo-Heflin's art and design. Drawing upon the work of biblical theologians, the lessons of church history, and the examples of modern-day saints and ordinary radicals, Jesus for President stirs the imagination of what the Church could look like if it placed its faith in Jesus instead of Caesar. A fresh look at Christianity and empire, Jesus for President transcends questions of 'Should I vote or not?' and 'Which candidate?' by thinking creatively about the fundamental issues of faith and allegiance. It's written for those who seek to follow Jesus, rediscover the spirit of the early church, and incarnate the kingdom of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Independent Candidate in the Upcoming Election  Oct 2, 2008
This is Shane Claiborne's second book, with Chris Haw as coauthor. Claiborne's first book, The Irresistable Revolution, challenged Christians to live more like Christ. This book explores the relationship between spirituality and politics. Readers should be prepared for their values and beliefs to be challenged, just as their walk with God was challenged in Revolution.

Claiborne's style is unique. The Irresistable Revolution was published in brown ink. This book takes book design to another level. Every page is a different color. There are pictures interspersed throughout, sometimes with text on them. There are visible edits on the text, such as scratchouts and underlining. It can become distracting at times, but for the most part it adds to the reading experience.

Claiborne describes God's purpose for Israel, Israel's subsequent failure to live up to that purpose, and how it relates to Christianity today. He describes the subversive nature of Jesus' message, which basically looked Rome in the eye and laughed at its supposed power. He also summarizes the dangers of the gospel and politics being intertwined.
Claiborne is creative and extreme. Some of his ideas are really out there. It would be easy to call him a kook, but the problem is, he walks the walk. There is nothing that he is preaching that he isn't actually living. Even the proceeds from his book are distributed among the different communities in which he lives. This book is definitely worth reading, especially at this time of year. It will help Christians remember that we are citizens of heaven first, Americans second.

Very Disturbing  Sep 27, 2008
"It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand." -Sam Clemens, aka Mark Twain.

I entirely disagree with many of the conclusions reached in this book. I'm just not sure which ones yet.

The beginning montage was the story of my life, sort of. I picked this book up because it looked interesting.

...and then Shane and Chris challenged exactly everything I believe in, except the existence of God and His nature as a loving Father. They challenged even my identity as an American (excuse me, citizen of the United States), calling "my country" the Empire - Rome, in fact. The beast. And utterly antithetical to the Kingdom of God. I'd been listening to the Bible on CD (The Word of Promise), and a lot of what they were saying jived with what Jesus said. They challenged the way I live life.

I say this of them: Chris and Shane have taken belief in Christ in a real way, where one actually.. you know.. believes what He said... they have taken it to a very radical conclusion. Their anti-war position has not completely convinced me, but it has made me rethink my position.

Make no mistake, I want Jesus for President. I want to share this book. I'm not sure I agree with the authors' conclusion, but "J4P" rocked my very nice and cozy American world. I also recommend Crazy Love by Francis Chan. It too is quite disturbing.
Buy It. Use It. Discuss it.  Sep 21, 2008
This is a great book. Good concise content summarizing the central message of the Christian Faith as testified to in the Bible and also with concrete everyday application of what it means to follow Jesus. The format and design are unique, reinforcing the message of the book. I've use it for discussion, teaching and preaching: inspirational, educational and well-received by diverse reading styles.
Loads of good stuff  Aug 13, 2008
I think that there is an incredible amount to learn in Jesus For President. Shane does an excellent job with many different topics. The bottom-line is very practical ways of living for Jesus and making Him the leader of our lives. There are some sections that are harder to read than others, but overall a great book that I will keep.
Jesus for President  Aug 13, 2008
I literally could not put this book down. I learned more from reading this than I did taking 2 semesters of Old testament and New Testament and years of bible study. I like the way the author breaks the book down into themes. I loved the graphics, the type.. everything. I think every person who calls him or herself a Christian should read this book. It will challenge you on a personal level. It is so different from what is out there on the shelves. I highly recommend this book.
