Publishers Description His experiences as a refugee from Nazi-dominated Hungary convinced John R. Bodo that there is just one Gospel, indivisible, personal, and social, and that 'mixing religion and politics' is part of a pastor's prophetic responsibility. This book is Bodo's spiritual autobiography, and based on twenty-one sermons preached over the last half-century, Bodo presents in biblical and theological perspective many controversial public issues which continue to engage and sharply divide Americans.
Commitment to the freedom of the pulpit and to responsible prophetic preaching has marked Bodo's entire ministry. Prophet on the Payroll illustrates Bodo's lifelong struggle to apply the justice and compassion of Jesus to some of the toughest issues facing post-industrial, multi-cultural, modern America.
