|Jesus for President

Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw’s book tour for Jesus for President kicks off tonight at 7pm at Mars Hill.

Here are some quotes from the Facebook group:

A different kind of campaign.
A different kind of party.
A different kind of Commander in Chief.

Jesus for President is a radical manifesto to awaken the Christian political imagination, reminding us that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in Jesus and the incarnation of the peculiar politic of the church as a people “set apart” from this world. In what can be termed lyrical theology, Jesus for President poetically weaves together words and images to sing (rather than dictate) its message. It is a collaboration of Shane Claiborne’s writing and stories, Chris Haw’s reflections and research, and art and design.

This is my little way of joining in the blog tour. And the book tour:

  1. We couldn’t find people to carpool with us, so we decided to forego three hours of driving to attend the book tour. I would have loved to have been there.Instead we stayed home and watched Why We Fight. And now I bloggeth.”Power to the peaceful.” -Michael Franti
