Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction

Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Kuo came to Washington wanting to use his Christian faith to end abortion, strengthen marriage, and help the poor. He reached the heights of political power, ultimately serving in the White House under George W. Bush. It was a dream come true: the chance to fuse his politics and his faith, and an opportunity for Christians not just to gain a seat at the proverbial table but also to plan the entire meal.

Yet his experience was deeply troubling. He had been seduced, just as so many evangelical conservatives had been seduced by politics. Tempting Faith is a wrenching personal journey and a heartfelt plea for a Christian reexamination of political and spiritual priorities.

Synopsis:

This eye-opening insiders account of the White Houses manipulation of Christians is also a profound story of one mans faith. At times funny, at other times sobering, Kuo advocates that Christians be adamant that politics doesnt come before God.
