A question that Jesus posed to his first-century followers in Galilee remains relevant to his twenty-first century followers in America: “What will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their soul?” Recently, members of the Religious Right have enjoyed unprecedented access to the corridors of power, but at great cost. George Chumney regards their Faustian bargain as one of the most dangerous problems facing America today.
To Lose One’s Soul offers a collection of biblical meditations designed to clarify the blatant disparity between the faith that these folks profess and the political views that they espouse. Focusing attention on the practical implications of Scripture, Chumney challenges America’s white evangelicals and white Catholics to repudiate the pundits, politicians, and preachers who have led them astray and to rediscover what it means to follow Jesus.
