Product Description

While Washington offers the politics of blame and fear, Jim Wallis offers hope by helping to change the national conversation on faith and politics. By reminding us that religious faith was a driving force behind our nation's greatest social reforms (abolition and civil rights movements), he shows how these periods of "great awakening" took place during crucial moments in our nation's history, propelling us toward the common good. The Great Awakening is a call to arms examining role of faith in politics, and offering seven commitments each of us can make on a personal, communal, and national level to motivate our world toward a redemptive future.

Author Bio

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.

Editorial Reviews

The book is as passionate, engaging, and emotionally moving as readers have come to expect from Wallis.
Laden with anecdotes, Wallis’ book claims a groundswell of progressive believers could accomplish social transformation that mere politics cannot deliver.
Offers insight into religious activism and the possibilities for a more progressive approach to religious engagement in the public square
This call to arms is approachable and inspiring . . . Wallis’s analysis of the role of faith, especially Christian faith, in embracing progressive ‘common good’ politics is highly astute and, overall, very compelling.
“This is a must-read for anyone concerned about the staggering problems that America faces today. Before you vote, read THE GREAT AWAKENING.”
...a timely, powerful, persuasive book which richly deserves a wide hearing....
