Senator John Ashcroft (Missouri) What is compassion?

Marvin Olasky offers fresh and compelling answers to these pressing questions in "Compassionate Conservatism."

Senator Rick Santorum (Pennsylvania) Once again, Marvin Olasky defines the moment. He unveils the human face of the movement with which many of us identify, and shows that our objective is not political posturing, but helping real people with real needs -- truly transforming lives.
