Item Description...
David Gushee argues convincingly that there is in U.S. politics an "evangelical center" of voters who do not identify with the politics and religion of either the right or the left. Although evangelical Christians are portrayed by the media as conservatives, Gushee claims that the evangelical movement includes nearly even numbers of voters on the right, in the center, and on the left of the political spectrum. He provides portraits of the major figures in each of the three camps, outlines the core convictions of the adherents, and analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of each group's positions. He suggests that the evangelical center is poised for growth; this book could be its manifesto.

Important book for understanding the evangelical landscape  Jun 22, 2008
If you only have time to read one book, and you want to get caught up on what's been going on with evangelicals who are politically engaged, then choose this one. It's very easy to read. Though it isn't comprehensive with regard to every issue, it does give a glimpse of the big picture. It's detailed, but not tedious. Descriptive, but not polemical--though Gushee is unambiguous about letting the reader know where he personally stands. In fact, I commend the writer for being forthcoming, revealing his personal history and explaining his involvements that have shaped his point of view. He really doesn't try to pull a fast one on anybody. On the contrary, he encourages evangelicals to become more astute and less naive. On another note, I appreciate how consistent Gushee is in exhorting evangelicals to be more protective of children. Overall, I loved this book. I'm not convinced by all of Gushee's arguments for standing in the center as opposed to the right or left, but I am very grateful for his commentary. Moreover, I agree with his thesis that we, as Christians, are called to follow Christ--and that is very differnt from aligning ourselves uncritically with Republicans or Democrats or any political candidate we might vote for.
