Originally this book was an assignment from a publisher in 2006. The publisher asked me to write a book that would be titled, Jesus Was a Democrat and I said I couldn't write that book because I think that Jesus was an independent. I was interested in exploring this because I was getting very tired of the Republicans claiming they had the corner on Christ. I was a Democrat and a Christian with theology degrees and an experienced writer which is what they were looking for. I became fascinated with the issues and with the differences between the Republican and Democratic platform. And I became more and more convinced that most Democratic policies were more in line with the teachings of Jesus.
