The Bible and Politics by Walt Manning

On January 1, 2014, CrossLink Publishing released Walt Manning’s seventeenth book, “The Bible and Politics,” currently available through www.crosslinkpublishing.com, your local book stores, Amazon,  or directly from the author himself, via waltmanning@hotmail.com.  The following offers some insight on the book.

Today’s pundits of political correctness have decreed it inappropriate to talk about the Bible in the public marketplace. Those who do are often vilified and stamped as a Religious Fanatic. But, even worse is to discuss the Bible and politics in the same conversation. “So, why,” you might ask, “would anyone want to publically tackle two controversial subjects, simultaneously?” Whereas religion and politics impact each of us, to ignore either is to risk being manipulated and controlled by their apostles.

In this work, humor is the delivery vehicle chosen to approach contentious issues involving Washington politics. By intertwining biblical principles with quotes from famous people, the Bible becomes the established plumb line in the political arena.

Walt Manning spent fifty years in the hi-tech industry. Starting as an electronics technician in the USAF, he later earned a BS & MS in Electrical Engineering. His career spanned engineering, sales, marketing, and program management. He retired as a Senior Program Manager in April 2009 to pursue his writing career.
