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.

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.
