America's original sin : racism, white privilege, and the bridge to a new America by Jim Wallis( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's problem with race has deep roots, with the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another. Racism is truly our nation's original sin. "It's time we right this unacceptable wrong," says Christian activist Jim Wallis. Fifty years ago, Wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo. His participation in the civil rights movement brought him back when he discovered a faith that commands racial justice. Yet as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from the legacy of racism. The old patterns of white privilege are colliding with the changing demographics of a diverse nation. The church has been slow to respond, and Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour of the week. In America's Original Sin, Wallis offers a call to action in overcoming the racism so ingrained in American society. He speaks candidly to Christians -- particularly white Christians -- urging them to cross a new bridge toward racial justice and healing. Whenever divided cultures and gridlocked power structures fail to end systemic sin, faith communities can help lead the way to grassroots change

Who speaks for God? : an alternative to the religious right--a new politics of compassion, community, and civility by Jim Wallis( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Who Speaks for God? prominent social activist and pastor Jim Wallis examines the platform of the self-designated Religious Right to reveal how its positions actually conflict with the Bible. He also exposes the humanistic policies of the secular Left for what they have proven themselves to be: programs devoid of values and spirituality. In this readable and insightful investigation of our political life, pastor Wallis discusses three touchstones for understanding and assessing the principles of a balanced society: compassion, community, and civility. How should we treat the poor? How do we accomplish some sense of unity with life-affirming values and vision? And how do we honor one another's differences? Our journey through these touchstones of political life can restore a sense of "soul" to society and reinvigorate the spirit of our country
On God's side : what religion forgets and politics hasn't learned about serving the common good by Jim Wallis( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side."--Abraham Lincoln Lincoln led America through one of the most tumultuous times in our nation's history. Reading his words today, it is clear we still have much to learn concerning what it means to be on God's side. Bestselling author, public theologian, and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis speaks directly into our current context, revealing the spiritual compass we need to effect lasting change in our society. He explains how the good news of Jesus transforms not only our individual lives but also our public lives. Jesus's 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. In the midst of contentious national debates on gun control, immigration, budget deficits, and more, this book moves the conversations beyond current media and political warfare to bring together a divided country. Wallis explores how Jesus's agenda can serve the common good, what it takes to sustain a lifelong commitment to social justice, and how reading the Bible as well as the culture can shape our lives for genuine transformation. -- Provided by publisher
