If Jesus were alive today, would he: Feed the poor-or cut free school lunch programs? Comfort the old and infirm-or eliminate Social Security? Turn the other cheek-or invade Iraq? In this groundbreaking book, noted author and theologian Linda Seger
, Th.D., explores what it means to be a Christian and a Democrat-and shows how the two are not mutually exclusive (as many Republicans claim), but rather inclusive . She reveals the close relationship between Democratic policy and Jesus's 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 America's real Christians are all Republicans is just that-an idea, and an indefensible, divisive one at that. Jesus Rode a Donkey is a call to Christians everywhere to remember that Jesus was a liberal, who rode a donkey through the streets of Jerusalem-not an elephant.
