Seven Ways to Change the World: Reviving Faith and Politics

Front Cover
Lion Hudson Limited, 2008 - Christianity and politics - 288 pages
Following on from the New York Times bestselling God's Politics, Jim Wallis's Seven Ways to Change the World speaks to a people hungry for a politics of solutions and hope. It offers a plan for solving some of the biggest issues of our time: poverty and economic justice, global warming, HIV/AIDS, human trafficking, genocide and the ethics of war. Rather than reciting a laundry list of doom and dread, Wallis identifies seven basic commitments for political involvement that could make the ultimate difference in resolving the great challenges we face. For too long, he says, ideological religion has been part of the problem, but now an engaged spirituality could be a part of the solutions. Writing out of the US context, his message has universal resonance, reminding us of the 'common good' that lies at the heart of social reform. Seven Ways to Change the World will help us to rediscover our moral centre and infuse us with the inspiration and passion necessary to build the kinds of movement that transform politics from the outside in.
