Raised Right

This is a tough book to review - partially because I'm still working out my views on some of the topics addressed. It was, however, timely.

While I can't agree completely with the author's stance on some points, I admire the way she has fought to untangle her faith from her political viewpoints. I believe that too many people use their faith to back up their politics, when really, faith has nothing to do with a political party.

It doesn't seem that the author has fully untangled her faith from politics - though, granted, I think faith tends to become entwined in nearly every aspect of a Christian's life. Her thought processes are interesting though, and she does a wonderful job of putting her sentiments down on paper. Understanding her way of thinking has helped, somewhat, to clarify my own. For this reason, I think it's worth reading.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah through Blogging for Books - their book review program. I wasn't required to post a positive review. These are my own opinions on this book.
