The author of the New York Times bestseller God's Politics says the only hope for our nation's soul is a conversion to the values Jesus preached and a government policy which reflects those values.
A 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 will be 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 proliferaton of nuclear capabilities of third–world nations.
