Full Product Description
Jim Wallis, adviser to the White House, outspoken Christian activist and founder of the Sojourner Magazine compellingly puts this theory into practice, letting his own beliefs guide him those times where opticians have tried to align God with policy instead of aligning themselves with God.
Looking at where the American right gets it wrong and the left misses it altogether, he takes apart the assumption engrained in US thinking (and in the West) that the United States is the unprecedented force for goodness in a fight against enemies Christian culture labels as "evil."
With stinging criticism of US foreign policy and the war in Iraq, the author looks at the problems of our gross misinterpretation of the Christian ethic and draws the conclusion something must be done if we want to see a new dawn in political discussions within our own society and the rest of the world. With a much-needed call for Christian ethics in politics on both the left and the right, Wallis argues passionately for a new kind of thinking in politics which, he claims, is catching on fast.
God's Politics by Jim Wallis was published by Lion Hudson in February 2006 and is our 14541st best seller. The ISBN for God's Politics is 9780745952246.

"God's Politics has struck a chord with contemporary Americans who, according to bestseller lists, are buying Wallis's book in droves. Regardless of how critics feel about the author's religious beliefs (evangelical Christian) and political leanings (traditional on family values; progressive on issues like poverty and social justice), they are hard-pressed to argue with his central tenets: God belongs to no single political party and true faith transcends political categorization." - Review from Bookmarks Magazine.
"What Wallis sees as the true mission of Christianity--righting social ills, working for peace--is in tune with the values of liberals who so often run screaming from the idea of religion. Meanwhile, in his estimation, religious vocabulary is co-opted by conservatives who use it to polarize. Wallis proposes a new sort of politics, the name of which serves as the title of the book, wherein these disparities are reconciled and progressive causes are paired with spiritual guidance for the betterment of society." - Other Retailer's Reviewer.
