Item description for Living God's Politics: A Guide to Putting Your Faith into Action by Jim Wallis...
Overview In anticipation of the midterm elections, a workbook helps readers of the "New York Times" bestselling "God's Politics" put their faith into action. Drawing on the author's decades of experience leading workshops on faith and politics, it is about moving past the politics of complaint toward positive change.
After fifteen weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list, God's Politics not only changed the conversation about faith and politics in this country, it began a movement. All across the country, wherever Jim Wallis spoke, people were frustrated by tax cuts and budgets that widened the gap between rich and poor, aggravated by the government's lack of response to natural disasters, wearied of misinformation and the ongoing war in the Middle East, and exasperated by the impractical political rhetoric about sexual abstinence in lieu of policies that would strengthen more broadly family values and community health.
Folks began asking what they could do to promote peace, economic justice, racial equality, and the sanctity of life. They wanted to know how they could influence government policies to better reflect their moral values. In response, Wallis and the editors of Sojourners magazine offer Living God's Politics, a reader's guide for putting the lessons of God's Politics into action. Who will change our government's policies to better integrate our values? We're the ones we've been waiting for, and this book offers us the tools and techniques to change the political landscape for the better.

Reviews - What do customers think about Living God's Politics: A Guide to Putting Your Faith into Action?
An interesting book that is relevant to US times Sep 2, 2006
The idea of Wallis' book "God's Politics" was to have the general public, liberals in particular, learn something while both parties work together to improve their political differences that are having some negative effects on the world around them. For anyone in search of ways on how to make those transform those ideas into reality, this book is a must-have.
