Losing Their Religion

There’s an interesting article about how American politics have hijacked religion – it’s based around an interview with Jim Wallis who is in Australia promoting his new book God's Politics: Why the American Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It. It’s quite interesting and has changed my opinion of the book (which I judged by the cover) from one that I wouldn’t touch with a 10ft pole to one that I’d look at if there was one in the damaged bin. My favourite bit of the article is the end where Wallis tells a story of how someone described him; 'You're the only Christian I see and don't throw up afterwards'

I've been really keen to get my hands on that book for a while now to read it. Just can't afford to buy it at the moment.
