From the dustjacket: When did telling others of life-transforming faith turn into a bumper sticker mentality which allows someone to state an opinion without the inconvenience of listening to another point of view? How did the public perception of Jesus' followers get so far away from His teachings? One man took two years of his life to find out. Lord, Save Us from Your Followers chronicles an intellectually daring search for meaningful dialogue. Follow author and film maker Dan Merchant as he dons a bumper sticker jumpsuit to conduct street interviews in major cities, discusses the culture war with diverse media players, and experiences what Project Mercy is accomplishing in drought-ravaged Ethiopia.Always!

More Description

Why is the Gospel of Love dividing America? Fed up with the angry, strident language filling the airwaves that has come to represent the Christian faith, author, director, and follower Dan Merchant set out to explore the collision of faith and culture in America. What is all this fighting really about? The book and upcoming documentary represent a two-year effort to "join the battlefield in hopes of getting a conversation started." The result is a book full of offbeat observations, fun anecdotes, comedic bits and in-depth interviews. From Dan's hilarious bumper-sticker interviews with folks on the street to his unique "Confession Booth" event inspired by his meeting with Tony, the Beat Poet, from Blue Like Jazz, he delves into all the hot button issues with candor, humor and balance.

Includes exclusive interviews with Al Franken, Rick Santorum, Tony Campolo, conservative radio host Michael Reagan, USA Today columnist Tom Krattenmaker, Pastor Rick Warren, and even Sister Mary Timothy of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as well as many more.
