    " My daughter (who loves God and lives for him more than just about anyone I know) turned me on to this book. At the time I read it I was considered 'right wing'. I wanted to get a better feeling as to where the other side/her side, was coming from. Even though I read this awhile ago I remember thinking all the 'bad' examples Mr. Wallis used were portrayed by Repulicans and all the 'good' examples were portrayed by Democrats. I might have gone into it with the wrong attitude, but I wrote notes in all the margins because he stirred up so many emotions. Nevertheless, he got me to thinking. And I believe it was the start of my change of heart- to re-think my way of thinking about politics. Not left or right but God's politics. "

    " Wallis is dense, and this book is chock-full. There is so much valuable stuff in here... so much that encourages and challenges the modern Church. Wallis asks us: What are we doing for the poor? What are we doing for the least of these? Are you really following Jesus? He has worked for many years in the political arena to be the catalyst for such conversations. He is working to find some non-partisan solutions to the problems in the world. Wallis is convinced that issues of war, poverty, education, homelessness.... these things are the Church's responsibilty. He is asking us not to be silent. He is asking is not to follow a party, but to follow Jesus. "

    " I was initially opposed to this book, because I thought I got it. Then I saw Wallis speak at the ELCA youth gathering in 2006, and found myself totally agreeing with his statements. It gets too preachy at parts, and the author's high regard for himself can be grating, but his ideas and arguments really spoke to me. "

    " I thought it was going to be ok. He seemed to be going in a decent direction until I got to the part where he was completely anti-semetic. Too bad. "
