The Compassionate Community: Ten Values to Unite America

by

The Compassionate Community: Ten Values to Unite America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kentucky State Treasurer Jonathan Miller, a rising star in the Democratic party and the leading advocate for a broader discussion of faith within politics, identifies ten nonpartisan values that unite all Americans, and uses Old Testament stories to highlight them. As an elected official in a "red" and largely Christian state, he has come to understand that although faith is often the source of divisiveness, the language of faith can bring Americans together. Inspiring stories from the Hebrew Bible illustrate Miller's plan to form a Compassionate Community. He shows that these lessons have the power to strengthen our country for future generations.

About the Author

Jonathan Miller is the State Treasurer of Kentucky and is running for Governor. He has been named an emerging national leader by groups as diverse as the Democratic Leadership Council, the United Jewish Communities, and the Aspen Institute. He lives in Lexington, Kentucky.
