The idea that America's real Christians are all Republican is just that--an idea, and an indefensible, divisive one at that. In its examination of current political affairs, this book exposes the many ways in which core Christian values ultimately correspond with basic Democratic ideology.

Jesus Rode a Donkey
Why Millions of Christians Are Democrats
By Linda Seger, Th.D.

Politics is something that can divide people and even the Church can be split when it comes to political allegiance. But with Jesus Rode a Donkey Linda Seger looks beyond the party platforms and looks at the heart of the issue.

When voting one needs to look at how an individual candidate has portrayed their beliefs in their life and action not just in their official platform. The election process is one fraught with

Jesus Rode a Donkey: Why Republicans Don't Have the Corner on Christ by Linda Seger, Th.D. is both slightly dated and startlingly poignant at the same time.

Unfortunately, those days look downright rosy given today's gridlock in Washington.

Dr. Seger is a Quaker and her doctorate is in women's liberation theology. While her problem solving approach i

I didn't read everything in this book because I'm out of time and have to return it to the library, but what I read was quite good. The chapter on War and Peace was well done. The author does not simply critize Republicans or conservatives but points out how presidents and other political leaders on both sides have been deceitful and dishonest. I will probably read more in it later.

This book was excellent! While it was absolutely written from the point of view of a Democrat (just look at the title), Linda Seger did a very good job of being open minded throughout this book and still communicating her ideas with the reader. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who strangely enjoys reading political books!
