Brian McLaren recently released three e-books - one the word of the Lord to evangelicals, one the word to Democrats and this one to Republicans. Here we meet Fred, a farmer from Ohio, who is told to go to Washington DC and preach to the Republicans.

Brian D. McLaren is an internationally known speaker and the author of over ten highly acclaimed books on contemporary Christianity, including A New Kind of Christian, A Generous Orthodoxy, and The Secret Message of Jesus.More about Brian D. McLaren...
