Description

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.

        How far should we go to understand each other's points of view? Maybe the distance grace covered on the cross. — Bono, lead singer of U2

        Jim Wallis is an inspiration to me– for his witness of faith and his engagement with politics. — Bill Moyers

        Jim Wallis is compelling, provocative, and inspirational, with faith that can move mountains and can certainly move people and communities. — Archbishop Desmond Tutu

        Wallis at his usual passionate and brilliant self: he will move you to examine your conscience and search your soul. — E.J. Dionne, author of Stand Up Fight Back and Why Americans Hate Politics

        Jim Wallis is the major prophetic evangelical Christian voice in the country. — Cornel West, author of Race Matters and Democracy Matters

        January 1, 2005
        Harper San Francisco, which originally planned to publish Jim Wallis's book God's Politics: Why the Right Gets it Wrong, and the Left Doesn't Get It, in April, has decided to crash publish it for inauguration week due to the expected media response. During the first week of sales, the Sojourners founder will be featured on The O'Reilly Factor, Chris Matthews, NPR's Fresh Air and PBS's Charlie Rose, as well as appearing live for four hours of ABC's inaugural coverage with Peter Jennings. Wallis's book speaks about the need for "a fuller, deeper, and richer conversation about religion in public life" and offers a much-needed corrective to strident, conservative Christian voices in politics. Left-leaning Christians who believe that war and the economy are significant moral issues have found an articulate and passionate spokesman in Jim Wallis. .
