"Like a mighty wind"

In the Claremont Review of Books, Christopher Levenick assesses five tomes from the Religious Left. Books by former President Carter, Jim Wallis and others are reviewed and found wanting.
Three of the five are familiar names in the highest echelons of Washington politics. Altogether, they have published over 50 volumes. For all their work in the world of words, however, these authors are uniformly terrible writers, with prose that ranges from tedious to tendentious. But they are united by more than the mere absence of style. Their projects draw upon a common set of assumptions, employ similar methods, and arrive at the same conclusions. [the review]
