"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. Listening to 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' 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. This audiobook seeks to move beyond the current media and political warfare and bring together a divided country. 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.
What members say
Author appears confused
It’s clear that family means a lot to the author and the standards to which he holds family are contradictory many a time.
This is particularly evident when his tolerance and grace the church should have to the LBGT community in light to those who are law breakers to his standards within conventional families.
Many a time he is saying something to only enough not fully say it so to not offend. He is too PC to be taken seriously.
