In this timely and hopeful book, Jim Wallis shows how left and right, religious and non-religious, Christians and those of other faiths may find common ground working for the benefit of our communities, our neighbours, and our world. As Wallis writes, "Our life together can be better. It's time to hear and heed a call to a different way of life, to reclaim a very old idea called the common good." So who is my neighbour in an age of austerity when different ideas of fairness clamour for attention, and what can we do to build up the common good?
Jim Wallis, an evangelical, is the leading figure at the crossroads of religion and politics in America today. He is the founder of Sojourners, a US network of progressive Christians working for justice and peace. He is a bestselling author and his columns appear in the 'New York Times, 'Washington Post', and 'Los Angeles Times'.
