Author event with Dr. Clay Stauffer author of Preaching Politics

Parnassus Books welcomes Dr. Clay Stauffer as he discusses and signs Preaching Politics: Proclaiming Jesus in an Age of Money, Power and Partisanship.

Religion, politics, and money.  Three things you’re never supposed to discuss in polite company.  But what if you’re a pastor?  Forget red state/blue state divisions, what happens when your church members disagree about politics?  In this age of prosperity preaching, how do you preach, “You cannot serve God and money?”  Clay Stauffer addresses the challenges that preachers face when serving a politically diverse congregation in Preaching Politics.  Money, materialism, and their effects on modern-day faith and spirituality are viewed through the teachings of Jesus, as well as the work of Methodist minister Adam Hamilton and Duke University ethicist Stanley Hauerwas.

Dr. Clay Stauffer, Senior Minister at Woodmont Christian Church is a fourth generation Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) minister.  He lives with his wife and two children in Nashville, where he has served on the boards of the Nashville Food Project, Faith Family Medical Clinic, the Disciples Divinity House at Vanderbilt, the Phoenix Club of Nashville, the Downtown Rotary Club and Green Hills YMCA.
