The Compassionate Community

Ten Values to Unite America

Jonathan Miller; Afterword by Al Gore

Palgrave Macmillan Trade

Kentucky State Treasurer Jonathan Miller, a rising star in the Democratic party and the leading advocate for a broader discussion of faith within politics, identifies ten nonpartisan values that unite all Americans, and uses Old Testament stories to highlight them. As an elected official in a "red" and largely Christian state, he has come to understand that although faith is often the source of divisiveness, the language of faith can bring Americans together. Inspiring stories from the Hebrew Bible illustrate Miller's plan to form a Compassionate Community. He shows that these lessons have the power to strengthen our country for future generations.
