    She’s an inspirational speaker on topics including women’s rights, personal transformation and political reform. She also provides training for individuals, NGO’s and corporations on both compassion, purpose and Nine Principles for a Happier Life (which form the core of her book, WE). Culminating with how compassion is lived out by God’s people, the book looks at concepts of transformation and the demonstration of the kingdom of God in the real world. This book provides an excellent biblical and theological foundation for anyone involved or interested in ministries of social justice, relief, development and compassion.

    Bin Xu’s book, The Politics of Compassion, provides an analytical account of the grassroots civic engagement in the aftermath of the devastating Sichuan earthquake in ing the disaster, a massive number of Chinese citizens voluntarily gathered together to provide services and assist with relief efforts.   As the U.S. presidential election nears, we appear to be a divided nation—not only in politics but also in the church. In his new book, A House Divided: Engaging the Issues through the Politics of Compassion, Feldmeir writes, “Americans are not nearly as polarized in their actual convictions as the current political rhetoric suggests.”.

    The Sichuan earthquake kil people and left 5 million homeless. In response to the devastation, an unprecedented wave of volunteers and civic associations streamed into Sichuan to offer help. The Politics of Compassion examines how civically engaged citizens acted on the ground, how they understood the meaning of their actions, and how the political climate shaped their actions. Professor Irvine teaches philosophy at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Not long ago a colleague and I were discussing my article on Federal disaster relief that appeared in the March Freeman. In the article I argued, among other things, that the government should not spend money to help rebuild the homes and businesses of the victims of the San Francisco earthquake.
