About This Book
With the success of his God¡¯s Politics national tour--where book signings turned into large town meetings-- Jim Wallis started a nationwide movement that ended the Religious Right¡¯s monologue on faith and politics. After speaking with people across the country as well as with political leaders and presidential candidates in Washington, DC, Wallis brings us The Great Awakening--a plan forward for reviving the heart and soul of our nation.
Here, Wallis not only chronicles the demise of the Religious Right and the changes in DC¡¯s rarefied air, but summarizes America¡¯s legacy of combining personal faith and political justice that inspired such changes as the abolition of slavery, the civil rights movement, and the anti-war movement. The Great Awakening offers ¡°rules of engagement¡± for a politics that transcends partisanship embracing common values for the common good. Wallis offers seven personal, communal, and political commitments that are beginning to gain popularity among Americans of faith:
- Integrity & Accountability for our politicians
- Opportunity & Inclusion for the working poor
- Stewardship & Renewal for our decaying environment
- Life & Dignity for global suffering and skyrocketing healthcare
- Family & Community in the face of disturbing trends like the ¡°me¡± generation¡¯s online alienation
- Equality & Diversity to think clearly about immigration concerns and a shrinking world
- Peace & Justice for a globe racked with wars over resources and religions
These commitments are beginning to bring about a resurgence of personal faith and social justice to make this country stronger. With The Great Awakening, Wallis beats the drum calling the entire nation to rediscover our moral center, and provides the reader with a concrete plan forward and the inspiration to build the kind of movement that has saved our country in the past and can do so today.
