Conservatives, Liberals, and the Fight For America's Future (Ebook Shorts)

There is a war going on in our nation's political discourse. Polarizing labels--left/right, Republican/Democrat, young/old, rich/poor, traditional/progressive--define and divide us. And in the process we've lost a vision for the common good.

Jim Wallis believes our life together can be better. And he thinks both conservatives and liberals have something to offer in finding answers to today's complex problems. Personal responsibility and social responsibility are equally important: we must make good individual choices and also care for our neighbors. Wallis explores the role government can play in promoting the good of society, showing how its balanced presence can make a difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable, and he offers hope for a more respectful conversation. He suggests making "Ten Personal Decisions for the Common Good" as you envision a more hopeful future.

This is a selection from The (Un)Common Good: How the Gospel Brings Hope to a World Divided.
