Jesus for President
by Shane Claibourne and Chris Haw

www.jesusforpresident.org

This is a very visual book, put together like a collage of many things and places. It speaks of a President for life, not just for Christmas and recasts the whole story into a modern context. Starting with Adam and eve (No political parties in that garden, not even the Green Party) and going all the way throught to Revelation (and the original identity of the Beast). It includes such things as literal biblical excuses to smite your neightbour, a thirteenth century streaking saint, and why Heaven is overcrowded when there is a strict entry policy.

A book well worth opening, and hard to close again, with many thought provoking sections - all written with a lot of humour.
