Dispatches from the Buckle - 004

Giving you yet more nourishment for the great spiritual struggle entailed in any election year, we thought it efficacious to bring you part 2 of our late summer guide to theology and politics, going deep into the Tokens archives, from the election season of 2008. We start you out with a rendition of "Power in the Blood," a song that most folks would think to have nothing to do with politics, until you realize that the history of human politics is, in too many ways, the history of blood-letting. After that, we’ll hear an interview with Professor Randall Balmer, author of God in the White House, a bit of wisdom from our first Preacher Man on the Tokens show, Dear Preacher Man, and an interview with Sojourners founder and author of God's Politics and The Great Awakening, Jim Wallis.
