On God's Side | What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned about Serving the Common Good (Wallis)
Bestselling author, public theologian, and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis speaks directly to who we are as a nation and as Christians, revealing the spiritual compass we need to effect lasting change in our society. Wallis explains how the good news of Jesus transforms not only our individual lives but also our public lives. Jesus' gospel of the kingdom of God helps us recover a personal and social commitment to the common good and shows us--in concrete ways--how to be both personally responsible and socially just. Working together, we can reshape our churches, society, politics, and economy. On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned about Serving the Common Good moves the conversations beyond current media and political warfare to bring together a divided country. Wallis explores how Jesus' agenda can serve the common good, bring us to a commitment to social justice, and helps us to see that reading the Bible as well as the culture can shape our lives for genuine transformation.
