Rules for Reformers (Wilson)
Author: Douglas Wilson
Section: Faculty & Alumni Books
Description: InÂ Rules for Reformers, Douglas Wilson poaches the political craft of radical progressives and applies it to Christian efforts in the current culture war. The result is a spicy blend of combat manual and cultural manifesto.Â Rules for ReformersÂ is a little bit proclamation of grace, a little bitÂ Art of War, and a little bit analysis of past embarrassments and current cowardice, all mixed together with a bunch of advanced knife-fighting techniques. As motivating as it is provocative,Â Rules for ReformersÂ is just plain good to read. Thanks to Saul Alinsky'sÂ Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals--a book well-beloved by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and many others--for much of the shrewd advice, and for none of the worldview.
