Soul of Politics: Practical and Prophetic Vision For Change

Jim Wallis

$15.99

Paperback
This work is a response to the signs of cultural breakdown and political ^impasse: the widespread poverty, violence, racism and sexism. It shows why ^both liberal and conservative visions are inadequate to the challenge of ^these problems and argues for a new political majority.

- Publisher This work responds specifically to the signs of cultural breakdown and ^political impasse in Western societies: the absence of community, the ^widespread poverty, the violence, racism and sexism.^Wallis shows why both right and left wing visions are inadequate to the ^challenge of these problems. One preaches social justice, the other ^personal responsibility. The new political morality has to combine both, ^with a strong measure of spirituality too.^The book is a balance of sophisticated analysis and stories, as Wallis ^tours the world looking for "signs of transformation". From the gangs of ^Los Angeles to the peasants of the Philippines, and in the revolution that ^transformed South Africa, something dramatic is underway.
