Ryan Bolger, from Fuller Seminary, has a great summary of an article by Miroslav Volf entitled “Leaving Jesus Behind.” Both Bolger’s summary and Volf’s article are worth reading and thinking about.
Here’s a portion from Bolger’s summary:
“Both groups [the religious right and religious left] abandon the gospel in advocacy of their politics. The irony is that if either of these groups embraced the life described in the gospels, Jesus would exceed the left’s demand for social justice and the right’s demands for ‘right’ living.”

I think that statement is right on target.
