New York Times bestseller God's Politics struck a chord with Americans disenchanted with how the Right had co-opted all talk about integrating religious values into our politics, and with the Left, who were mute on the subject. Jim Wallis argues that America's separation of church and state does not require banishing moral and religious values from the public square. God's Politics offers a vision for how to convert spiritual values into real social change and has started a grassroots movement to hold our political leaders accountable by incorporating our deepest convictions about war, poverty, racism, abortion, capital punishment, and other moral issues into our nation's public life. Who can change the political wind? Only we can.
Jim Wallis is the author of the New York Times bestseller God's Politics, which electrified Americans disenchanted with how the Right had co-opted all talk about integrating religious values into our politics by offering an alternative voice. Wallis is a leading figure at the crossroads of religion and politics in America today, the author of eight books, and the founder of Sojourners, a global faith and justice network. He is a public theologian, an internationally renowned speaker and preacher, a faith-based activist, husband, and father to two young boys, and a Little League baseball coach.
David Crumm and ReadTheSpirit.com
The founder of Sojourners Magazine will turn 60 in the summer of 2008 and clearly he feels a powerful vocational calling to try to unite the various splintered groups within the evangelical movement behind a prayerful commitment to the timeless call to healing from the pages of Isaiah.
The book describes much of Wallis' own journey, including his recent, tearful reconciliation with Campus Crusade for Christ's Bill Bright after a painful, decades-long feud. Bright had pursued political strategies in the Religious Right and Wallis had been as staunch a critic of that movement as he has been a critic of what he calls "secular fundamentalism" in politics.
The book is terrific for discussion groups, because you won't have to work hard to prompt the flow of discussion. People will come to class eager to dig into this material from many points of view.
Jim Wallis is an inspiration to me for his witness of faith and his engagement with politics.
Jim Wallis is compelling, provocative, and inspirational, with faith that can move mountains and can certainly move people and communities.
Wallis at his usual passionate and brilliant self: he will move you to examine your conscience and search your soul.
Jim Wallis is the major prophetic evangelical Christian voice in the country.
“Wallis provides a refreshing alternative voice to the polarizing rhetoric currently popular.”
