Summary
David Kuo came to Washington wanting to use his Christian faith to end abortion, strengthen marriage, and help the poor. He reached the heights of power, ultimately serving in the White House under George W. Bush in the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Yet his experience was deeply troubling--he began to see how his Christian values were being corrupted by politics. Instead of following the teachings of Jesus, Kuo found himself helping to manipulate faith for political gain. The legislative process was used not to pass laws but to deepen purely symbolic fault lines. Despite lofty rhetoric from the president, there was no serious attempt to fund valuable faith-based charities. Worst of all was the prevailing attitude of contempt in the White House and throughout Washington toward Christian leaders. It is time, Kuo argues, for Christians to take a temporary step back from politics, to turn away from its seductions.--From publisher description
