Amy Sullivan: More Kuo Book Goodness

By Amy Sullivan 10-17-2006

My longer, point-by-point response to attacks made by critics of the Kuo book can be read here, at It should give you a good sense of the best bits of the book. But I'd also encourage you to read the book yourself. The scandalous political bits have been picked up all over the news by now, but this is not just a "tell-all" book. It's also a thoughtful, moving, and brutally honest exploration of what happens to faith when it comes in contact with politics.

That's the real meaning behind the title Tempting Faith. Yes, it's what the Bush administration tried to do in order to win more religious votes for 2004. But it's also what happens to any child of God who enters the world of Caesar. The challenge is how you deal with the seductions and temptations of power.
