Jim Wallis has been around for many years and he's written quite a few books, but this is the crowning achievement of his writings. Somehow you feel that Wallis was made for this moment - a time when America's religious Right has never been more powerful, but also never been further from the heart of the Christian faith.
In a debate that often collapses into name-calling, Wallis is respectful but insistent. Traditional ideologues of the Left and Right might not like it, but this is the voice of a prophet who challenges both sides of the political spectrum. Wallis speaks with warmth, hope and the wisdom of a man who has spent a lifetime answering Jesus' instruction to feed the hungry and give shelter to the homeless - but who also understands political realities.
This is a profoundly important book and it's unlikely that anyone in our generation will put together a more authoritative yet reader-friendly book on how Christian belief should influence our politics.
