Notes:
The story of the Good Samaritan is probably the most famous in the Bible, and yet it has been consistently misused by politicians. Many of the most prominent figures of the modern age - Margaret Thatcher, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, Jeremy Corbyn and Hilary Benn, to name only a few - have used or referred to the parable in public utterances. This book is about what they said, how they used it, and what it says about our politics, Christianity, language and oratory today.
