The Soul of Politics: A Practical and Prophetic Vision for Change

The Soul of Politics: A Practical and Prophetic Vision for Change

by JimWallis (Author)


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.
