Book News
Having spent three years as second in command at President George W. Bush's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, David Kuo came away from the experience deeply disillusioned with the marriage of politics and Christianity, feeling that he and other Christians seduced by politics have been lured away from pursuing true Christian goals and been manipulated by irreligious politicians into supporting issues that have nothing to do with religion (although he maintains his faith in Bush's sincerity). Here, he recounts his experiences in the Bush administration, reflecting on the personal and public issues that caused him to turn away from the politics of religion, and pleads for a Christian "fast" from involvement in politics.
