Jesus Rode a Donkey by Linda Seger

This product was recommended by Jacquelyn Mahalick from Finn Partners

In this provocative and insightful book, Jesus Rode A Donkey: Why Millions of Christians Are Democrats, 5th Edition (Clovercroft Publishing May 5th, Trade Paperback, 253 pages, ISBN: 978-1950892143, $16.99), author Dr. Linda Seger, a theologian and a Quaker, explores what it means to be a Christian and a Democrat as we approach a sure-to-be historic 2020 election. Being Christian and a Democrat are not mutually exclusive, asserts Seger, Th.D. My book reveals the close relationship between Democratic policy and Jesus’ teachings and the many ways in which the values Jesus espouses in the Bible correspond to the values Democrats call their own. The idea that American Christians vote strictly Republican crumbles as readers peruse Seger’s careful study of both parties’ platforms. Jesus Rode A Donkey reminds the reader that Jesus and the prophets had a radical, progressive message that calls individuals and nations to feed the hungry, help the poor, heal the sick, free the oppressed, and to love our enemies. The Democrats embrace these values. It also gives Christian Republicans who are looking for a reason not to vote for Donald Trump a kind of safety net that confirms they can be Christians and vote Democrat. I hope it helps readers understand how important it is to vote in this election and how to use their faith and their value systems to lead them to their voting decisions. There are so many difficult problems facing us – and this book will help them understand a process for making choices through using Scripture, Christian theology, their own experiences, and an understanding of the issues.
