Writing in response to our current "constitutional crisis," New York Times bestselling author and Christian activist Jim Wallis urges America to return to the tenets of Jesus once again as the means to save us from the polarizing bitterness and anger of our tribal nation. In Christ in Crisis Jim Wallis provides a path of spiritual healing and solidarity to help us heal the divide separating Americans today. Building on "Reclaiming Jesus"--the declaration he and other church leaders wrote in May 2018 to address America's current crisis--Wallis argues that Christians have become disconnected from Jesus and need to revisit their spiritual foundations. By pointing to eight questions Jesus asked or is asked, Wallis provides a means to measure whether we are truly aligned with the moral and spiritual foundations of our Christian faith. "Christians have often remembered, re-discovered, and returned to their obedient discipleship of Jesus Christ--both personal and public--in times of trouble. It's called coming home," Wallis reminds us. While he addresses the dividing lines and dangers facing our nation, the religious and cultural commentator's focus isn't politics; it's faith. As he has done throughout his career, Wallis offers comfort, empathy, and a practical roadmap. Christ in Crisis is a constructive field guide for all those involved in resistance and renewal initiatives in faith communities in the post-2016 political context.

The Most Casual Observer doesn't indicate if s/he's even read the book. I get the impression s/he is another disaffected non-believer who has a beef against anyone sharing their ideology. I ask MCO to come and clarify if s/he read the book.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Another preacher, come to say that if only everybody were just like him and his friends, there would be peace and justice everywhere. That's what I call mental masturbation, it feels good to think about, but it just doesn't get the job done, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. This is the same guy, I remind you, who has seen fit to write a book revealing "God's Politics" to us, as if he had some inside track to divine wisdom.
Of course I've read the book. My comment stands. Didn't think I'd come back and check it, did you?
