Product Description

After speaking with people across the United States as well as political leaders in Washington, DC, bestselling author Jim Wallis brings us The Great Awakening - a plan for reviving the heart and soul of our nation.

The Great Awakening offers "rules of engagement" for a political movement would transcend partisanship and embrace common values for the common good. They include opportunity and inclusion for the working poor, stewardship and renewal for our decaying environment, and integrity and accountability for our politicians. With The Great Awakening, Wallis calls for the entire nation to rediscover its moral center, outlining a plan to build the kind of movement that has saved our country in the past and can do so again today.

Jim Wallis is a bestselling author, public theologian, speaker, preacher, and international commentator on religion and public life, faith, and politics. He is president and chief executive officer of Sojourners magazine. He has written eight books, including the New York Times bestseller God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It (HarperCollins). Jim lives in inner-city Washington D.C. with his wife, Joy Carroll, and their sons, Luke and Jack.

I had always been a skeptic of the church of personal peace and prosperity ... of righteous people standing in a holy huddle while the world rages outside the stained glass. But I've learned that there are many people of the cloth who are also in the world - from debt cancellation to the fight against AIDS to human rights, they are on the march. Jim Wallis isn't just part of this movement - he's out front carrying a bullhorn.

What will it take to solve the biggest issues of our time: extreme and needless poverty, global warming and environmental degradation, terrorism and the endless cycle of violence, racism, human trafficking, health care and education, and other pressing problems? While Washington offers only the politics of blame and fear, Jim Wallis, the man who changed the conversation about faith and politics, has traveled the country and found a nation hungry for a politics of solutions and hope. He shows us that a revival is happening, as people of faith and moral conviction seek common ground for change.

Wallis also reminds us that religious faith was a driving force behind our greatest national reforms, such as the abolition of slavery and the civil rights movement. These "great awakenings" happened periodically at crucial times in our nation's history to propel us toward the common good. The time is ripe for another movement that will transform this country. With "The Great Awakening," Wallis helps us rediscover our moral center and provides both the needed inspiration and a concrete plan to hold politics accountable and find solutions to our greatest challenges.
