In a style that is both personal and analytical, retired Episcopal Bishop Bennett Sims offers a penetrating critique of the extremist religious and political assumptions that underlie the domestic and foreign policies of President George W. Bush. He contrasts two radically opposed conceptions of power - both concepts are found in the Hebrew-Christian Scriptures.

The first concept of power, that represented by the President, is the centuries-old one of male-dominant, militarist imperialism, co-opted in recent history by a fierce fundamentalism that forecasts an imminent and violent end of history.

The other is the enduring power of compassion, justice, and non-violence exemplified by the Hebrew prophets and Jesus of Nazareth. This book celebrates the movement of prophetic power from the shadows of history to the foreground of political action.

This is a timely and courageous book. It should provoke much thought, prayer and discussion. Read it. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Laureate
