“A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.”

-Henry David Thoreau

From two liberal pastors and a practicing social activist comes a truly thought-provoking book that looks in depth at the morality of liberalism in their new publication, Less about Me; More about We.

Dr. Daniel C. Bruch, Dr. Thomas W. Strieter and Doris E. Strieter believe in justice, freedom, peace, compassion, mercy, responsibility, tolerance, equality, respect, the rule of law, and care for all things. They believe that we are all called to love the poor, the powerless, the disenfranchised, the sick, the imprisoned, the needy, the suffering, and the outsider, because God loves and cares for all people.

In writing this book, they have two purposes: to answer those who claim that liberalism is immoral and is somehow destroying the values of this country, and to do so in a manner and language that provides understanding, attention, and meaning to the religious and non-religious, whether liberal, moderate, or conservative.

This book seeks to reinvigorate the over-arching liberal value that it is “less about me and more about we.” It also seeks to provide a careful and reasoned response, in a specifically Judeo-Christian context, to many of the most vocalized and divisive current issues: patriotism, war, abortion, “war” on women, homosexuality, poverty, and the environment.

Using quiet, confident scholarship and reason, the authors seek to restore and energize a more informed response to the Religious and Political Right.

Enlightening and challenging, Less about Me; More about We is a valuable read that widens the reader’s understanding about the moral foundations of liberalism, its purposes and perspectives on society.
