night I finished reading God’s Politics: Why the American Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It by Jim Wallis. The book didn’t really engage me. I read the Australian edition (which inserts the name ‘American’ into the title just in case the reader doesn’t get it) but the book is still very much about American issues. It may be be a minor quibble but God’s real politics extend far beyond America. The book is more about Jim – and is an extended exercise in name-dropping and how Jim is right and the rest don’t get it.
