Right & Left Abandoning Jesus

Here’s a portion from Bolger’s summary: “Both groups [the religious right and religious left] abandon the gospel in advocacy of their politics. The irony is that if either of these groups embraced the life described in the gospels, Jesus would exceed the left’s demand for social justice and the right’s demands for ‘right’ living.”
