Bipartisanship Can Exist! Mar 12, 2008
This book is written by two men who come from very different backgrounds. One is a Republican the other a Democrat, but some how they have managed to do what the House and Senate have not been able to do for years, agree! Despite their different backgrounds both Jackson and Perkins present very clear and practical resolutions to seven issues that are before the heart of every person of faith: preserve and protect life; reform immigration; alleviate domestic poverty; cultivate racial harmony; protect religious freedom; defend marriage and family; and protect the environment. These men don't waste the readers time with political rhetoric, their book is not overwhelmed with scriptures from the Bible that leave the reader over powered, and their certainly is not a leaning towards the right or left; rather they presented the problems along with resolutions. In the end the reader is faced with the pivotal choice to administer change in our society. This book is instrumental for the life of every American and will effect and provoke our society to change if we choose to apply the resolutions presented before us. My fellow Americans, it is not the election of a President that is going to change our situation it is the understanding that America has always had a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We the PEOPLE must be the orchestrators of change! Pick up your copy today and begin to initiate change for our country.
Great Read For This Year's Election Mar 11, 2008
Amazing---a black Harvard grad meets up with a white leader of a pro-famioy organization and voila...who would know they could not only agree on something but define positive ways to address the issues facing the U.S. today? This has just enough research and info to make it credible, but not boring and just enough scripture to give the issues framework, without making it totally opinionated. Evey voter should get a copy and pass it around their office!
