A bestselling author, public theologian, preacher and moral social reformist, he starts from Abraham Lincolns famous if too often ignored comment: 'My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side.' Continuing his cross-boundary, pan political Christian message of his bestsellers Gods Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesnt Get It and The Great Awakening he makes clear what we still have to grasp if we are to be on God's side. Now, in On Gods Side, Jim Wallis provides the pointers toward how Jesus' message redirects not only the public life and priorities of national governments and institutions, but our individual lives too. The transformative nature of the gospel of the kingdom of God helps us recover the personal and social commitment to the common good directing and empowering us to be personally responsible and socially just. Its by working together, insists Wallis, that we can reshape our churches, society, politics, and economy. And that requires us to move beyond party political warfare through how we read the Bible and shape our lives for genuine transformation. 'Jim Wallis is a wrestler of values, ideas, and policies and how they interact to shape the world we live in. His deep, melodious voice is easy to listen to, but what he says takes a harder commitment to live by.' Bono, lead singer of U2 & cofounder of ONE.org
