Jim Wallis’ major new book is a scathing indictment of the way that conservative evangelicals in the US have self-righteously attempted to co-opt any discussion of religion and politics. And, while the Right argues that God’s way is their way, the Left pursues an unrealistic separation of religious values from morally grounded political leadership.

God’s Politics offers a clarion call to make America’s religious communities and its government more accountable to key values of the prophetic religious tradition – pro-justice, pro-peace, pro-environment, pro-equality, pro-consistent ethic of life and pro-family. These are the values of love and justice, reconciliation, and community at the core of what many people believe, whether Christian or not.
