IF JESUS WERE ALIVE TODAY, WOULD HE: Feed the poor - or give tax breaks to the super rich? Comfort the old and infirm - or cut Social Security? Make war - or make peace? 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, but rather inclusive. She reveals the close relationship between Democratic policy and Jesus' 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 vote strictly Republican crumbles when one studies the platforms of both parties. Jesus Rode a Donkey reminds the reader that Jesus and the prophets had a radical, progressive message that calls individuals and nations to feed the hungry, help the poor, heal the sick, care for the earth, free the oppressed, and love our enemies. LINDA SEGER, Th.D., is uniquely qualified to write this book - a theologian, author and speaker with degrees in English, Drama and Theology.

She comes from a long line of Lutherans who were theologians, ministers and missionaries. She's a Christian and a Democrat, and lives in Cascade, Colorado.
