Reviews - What do customers think about Faith Works: How Faith Based Organizations Are Changing Lives, Neighborhoods, and America?

as usual, Wallis cuts through poltical hatred and gets to the point  Oct 26, 2005
Jim Wallis is a brilliant and compassionate man who preaches his faith like nobody else. He is level-headed and not at all inflammatory, which is beautiful and so rare these days. I am not a particularly religious person, so when he speaks of 'faith' I think of it as 'faith' in humanity and the substitution works just fine. This book is for people who are done hating and being angry about the current state of our country (no matter your political persuasion) and who are truly looking for some way to help bring about change. For someone to have that strong a reaction against a man like Jim Wallis is, who unlike everyone these days has no hidden political agenda, is very bizarre. He is a TRUE Christian (yes, some still exist) and his priority is practicing and teaching the lessons of Christ, which don't include starting wars, sentencing people to death, degrading the poor, quieting dissenting voices, etc. FYI, those who read that last sentence as a poltiical statement rather than an honest recitation of the teachings of Christ are not ready for Jim Wallis's message (like, I suspect, the man who gave this one star).
More BS from Jim Walls  Jan 21, 2005
Gee, we have to have "Faith Based" organizations to change lives and neighborhoods across America. What a load of BS. From the day this country was formed there were people taking care of people whether faith was involved or not. Walls just loves to get preachy on the platform of righteousness. People who care about others are religious or not. They just have a basic need to get outside of EGO and place the welfare of others equal to their own. To place Religion doctrine (which is NOT necessarily "Christian") before the feeding of the hungry is as anti-Christian as it gets.
Don't Just Stand There, Do Something!  Mar 4, 2000
I really liked the preview of this book. Jim says many things we have all heard before but says it so well! I too believe we need to look beyond our backdoor or comfort zones and really open our eyes to what's going on around us. By that I mean nationally and internationally. There are many things wrong in this world and unless we as Christians are willing to take up the cross of Jesus in mission and doing for the least of them, things will remain as they are. Mr. Wallis has written a book previously entitled Who Speaks For God? It is excellent and explains the Sojourners magazine he is the editor of. I would encourage all readers to explore his work.
