Summary

Former White House insiders Gerson and Wehner call evangelicals toward a new kind of political engagement--one that is better for the church and the country, that cannot be co-opted by either political party, and which avoids the historic mistakes of the Religious Left and the Religious Right.

Author Biography

MICHAEL GERSON writes about politics, global health and development, religion and foreign policy. His column appears on Wednesdays and Fridays in The Washington Post. Gerson is senior research fellow at the Institute for Global Engagement's Center on Faith & International Affairs. He served as a policy adviser and chief speechwriter to President George W. Bush from 2000 to 2006. Before that, he was a senior editor covering politics at U.S. News & World Report. His book Heroic Conservatism was published by HarperOne in 2007.

PETER WEHNER, a former advisor to President George W. Bush known for his strident defense of his former boss’s policies, has continued to be a vocal proponent of rightist domestic and foreign policies since leaving government service. The longtime conservative insider has worked for several Republican administrations, and is currently a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) and a contributor to Commentary magazine, both core neoconservative institutions.
