Put Your Faith into ActionA leading voice at the crossroads of faith and politics offers a prophetic appeal for our times: faced with a growing gap between the rich and poor, bombarded by national security alerts that ratchet up our stress levels, taxed by a government that spends billions of dollars on war -- where do we find hope? In this revised and updated edition of his classic, Jim Wallis insightfully critiques contemporary culture and politics, inspiring us with stories to convert our way of thinking and point to a solution to our current social and political dilemmas.Review"A book too important to ignore?.Wallis convincingly presents Jesus as the original anti-poverty prophet who recognizes that despair leads to a host of other problems?.You won't read it in one go because you have to soak it in, think about it, and maybe even be, well, converted by it." -YouthWorker Journal (YouthWorker Journal)From the Back CoverA leading voice at the crossroads of faith and politics offers a prophetic appeal for our times: with a growing gap between the rich and the poor, with our fears surrounding national security, with the enormous costs of war, where do we find hope? In this revised and updated edition of his classic book, Wallis provides an insightful critique of our culture and politics, offering inspiring stories that show a way out of our social and political dilemma. He elaborates on the concept of conversion, surveying both the biblical and historical meanings as well as the experience itself. He shows us how to reassess the significance of conversion in today?s world. By gaining a profound understanding, Wallis argues, we will come to see how economic injustice and the threat of war can serve as the tests for measuring the depth of both our personal and our shared spirit. This new edition is updated throughout, with a new introduction, as well as extensively rewritten chapters on the most recent thinking and statistics on poverty, and on contemporary warfare with the current threat of terrorism and the proliferation of nuclear capabilities of third-world nations.About the AuthorJim 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.
