Book Salon: "Progressive & Religious"

Well, it is Sunday, so here is an interesting "book salon" from Firedoglake with author Robert Jones (no relation) about his new book, Progressive & Religious: How Christian Jewish, Muslim, and Buddhist Leaders Are Moving Beyond the Culture Wars and Transforming American Public Life. The book delves into the way some progressives find the source for their political values in their spiritual traditions. In an age when the radical religious Right dominates the public perception/discourse over faith and politics, this is a nice alternative.

What do you think about the nexus between faith, spirituality and progressive politics?
