About this title

Synopsis:

In today's political environment, who speaks for whom is not always clear. Over the past couple of decades, evangelical Christians have tended to be associated with the religious right and the most conservative positions of the Republican Party. Rebelling against this designation are those who prefer to be called Red Letter Christians, desiring to live out Jesus's words in the New Testament. Believing that Jesus is neither a Republican nor a Democrat, Red Letter Christians want to jumpstart a religious movement that will transcend partisan politics and concentrate on issues such as fighting poverty, caring for the environment, advancing peace, promoting strong families, and supporting a consistent ethic of life, all viewed as critical moral and biblical values. Into this arena of thought steps Tony Campolo, the powerful evangelist known for his passionate and prophetic sharing of the radical message of Jesus. In this book, Campolo examines many of the hot-button issues facing evangelicals from the perspective of Jesus's red-letter words in the Bible. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, Campolo will make you think, pray, and act.

From the Back Cover:

Over the past couple of decades, Evangelical Christians have been associated with the Religious Right and the most conservative positions of the Republican Party. Rebelling against this designation are those who prefer to be called “Red Letter Christians,” desiring to live out the red letters of Jesus’ words in the New Testament. Believing that Jesus is neither a Republican nor a Democrat, Red Letter Christians transcend partisan politics and concentrate on issues viewed critically through a moral and biblical lens.

Into this arena of thought steps Tony Campolo, the powerful evangelist known for his passionate and prophetic sharing of the radical message of Jesus. In this book, Campolo examines many of the hot-button issues facing Evangelicals from the perspective of Jesus’ red-letter words in the Bible. These include the environment, war, the AIDS crisis, Palestine, education, gun control, the role of government and choosing the right kind of candidate. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, Campolo will make you think, pray and act.

Tony writes this book with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other, reminding us that our faith must affect how we live in this world. This book is not just about how to vote in November...it is about how we vote every single day.

With “Campolian” passion and insight, Red Letter Christians prods, challenges, questions, invites and instructs us to be people who love and live the words of Jesus.

Author (brianmclaren.net)

With the maturity and depth only an elder statesman can provide, Tony Campolo brings his acute moral clarity to issues ranging from abortion to environmental stewardship, global poverty to gay marriage and everything in between. Campolo knows that people of faith should not be in the pocket of any political party—that God is not a Republican or a Democrat.
