Jim Wallis Releases New Book Responding to Our Nation’s Moral Crisis

Posted Sep 9, 2019

Rev. Jim Wallis’s new book, CHRIST IN CRISIS: WHY WE MUST RECLAIM JESUS, will be published by HarperOne on September 24th. Through the book, Wallis directly responds to our nation’s current moral and “constitutional crisis.”

With CHRIST IN CRISIS, Rev. Wallis creates an unprecedented spiritual field guide for Christians and those of different faiths—or no faith at all—who are trying to survive the polarizing bitterness and anger of our divided nation and move forward in the post-2016 political context.

Wallis cautions that silence at the pulpit and indifference towards our neighbors are as destructive as an anti-immigrant, anti-truth, white nationalist administration.

After the release of CHRIST IN CRISIS, Wallis will launch a nationwide book tour. Learn more at book.sojo.net.
