As a former three-term U.S. Republican senator from Missouri and an ordained Episcopal priest, John C. Danforth has watched the shifts in his party and the Christian church with growing alarm. Now he feels the time has come for a change.

Senator Danforth takes on the wedge issues (abortion, stem-cell research, gay marriage, the Schiavo case, displays of religion in the public square) forcefully and eloquently. He examines and lambastes the Christian Right's relentless hammering of this agenda to mobilize its base.

We must, Danforth insists, move forward together. Leaving divisive party politics behind, he says, we can address our country's problems. At a time when Americans have been disappointed again and again with their leaders' failings, Danforth's message is a much-needed one that will resonate with all concerned citizens.

    " I read this for a class at church and was not expecting to like it because I really can't stand the Republican Party right now. Maybe because I'm from Missouri, I related to Danforth and agreed with many of his ideas. Not going to convert to a Republican, but wish Danforth hadn't retired. "

    " Rev./Sen. Danforth argues that the religious right has corrupted the Republican Party and divided the nation. He recommends ways to bridge this divide and repair Jefferson's and Madison's wall between church and state. "
