Jesus for Presidentis a radical manifesto to awaken the Christian political imagination, reminding us that our ultimate hope lies not in partisan political options but in Jesus and the incarnation of the peculiar politic of the church as a people √"set apart√-- from this world.In what can be termed lyrical theology, Jesus for President poetically weaves together words and images to sing (rather than dictate) its message. It is a collaboration of Shane Claiborne√s writing and stories, Chris Haw√s reflections and research, and Chico Fajardo-Heflin√s art and design.Drawing upon the work of biblical theologians, the lessons of church history, and the examples of modern-day saints and ordinary radicals, Jesus for President stirs the imagination of what the Church could look like if it placed its faith in Jesus instead of Caesar.A fresh look at Christianity and empire, Jesus for President transcends questions of √"Should I vote or not?√-- and √"Which candidate?√-- by thinking creatively about the fundamental issues of faith and allegiance. It√s written for those who seek to follow Jesus, rediscover the spirit of the early church, and incarnate the kingdom of God.
