Description:

As a popular Democratic elected official and Jewish native of Kentucky, a "red" state in the heart of the Bible belt, Jonathan Miller brings a unique perspective to today's intense and polarizing debate concerning the proper role of religion and "moral values" in the political arena. Miller has come to understand that while religion sometimes has been the source of divisiveness, the language and lessons of faith can unite most Americans. In The Compassionate Community, he shares his vision of a society where Americans of all faiths can build a stronger democracy. Book jacket.
