About this title

Synopsis:

Named by Time magazine as one of the "50 Faces for America's Future, " Jim Wallis' advice is increasingly sought by leading politicians (including George W. Bush) who want to tap into the growing power and the emerging importance of faith-based organizations. Faith Works is a genre-busting book that includes elements of personal memoir, spiritual vision, social strategy, politics, and theology. Each of its 15 chapters conveys a practical commitment designed to compel readers to put their faith into action and make a difference in the world.

Review:

Jim Wallis is the theological equivalent of a jackalope. He's an evangelical protestant with a strong streak of sympathy for works righteousness. As he explains in Faith Works: Lessons from the Life of an Activist Preacher, "in the Bible, faith is not something you possess but rather something you practice. You have to put it into action or it really doesn't mean anything. Faith changes things. It's the energy of transformation, both for individuals and for a society." For decades, Wallis has channeled the boundless energy of his faith into religious activism. He may be best known as the editor of Sojourners magazine and a founder of Call to Renewal, an evangelical ministry to the poor. Faith Works is a genre-busting book that includes elements of memoir, self-help, sociology, politics, and theology. Each of its 15 chapters conveys a spiritual lesson designed to compel readers to put their faith into action and make a difference in their communities. Here are the first three lessons, which will give you some idea of the respectful, humorous, and demanding tones that sound throughout this book: "Trust your questions," "Get out of the house more often," and "Use your gift."
