Lincoln led America through one of the most tumultuous times in our nation's history - and reading his words today, it is clear we still have much to learn concerning what it means to be on God's side.
In On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned About Serving the Common Good, 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.
On God's Side seeks to move beyond the current media and political warfare and bring together a divided country. In it, Wallis explores how Jesus' 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.
