Item description for The Call to Conversion: Why Faith Is Always Personal But Never Private by Jim Wallis...

The author of the "New York Times" bestseller "God's Politics" says the only hope for the nation's soul is a conversion to the values Jesus preached and a government policy that reflects those values.

Publishers Description
Put Your Faith into Action

A leading voice at the crossroads of faith and politics offers a prophetic appeal for our times: faced with a growing gap between the rich and poor, bombarded by national security alerts that ratchet up our stress levels, taxed by a government that spends billions of dollars on war -- where do we find hope? In this revised and updated edition of his classic, Jim Wallis insightfully critiques contemporary culture and politics, inspiring us with stories to convert our way of thinking and point to a solution to our current social and political dilemmas.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Call to Conversion?

A welcome return to civility and original intent.  Aug 3, 2006
While some of the references in this book are a bit dated it has been brought current in this new edition. A welcome reminder of the true basis of Christianity. It renewed the energy with which I pursue enlightenment. A very nourishing read.
True conversion  Apr 7, 2006
I first read this book almost twenty years ago. It had a profound on my thinking and my faith. In particular it was a challenge which caused me to re-order my priorities. What was more important - forms of worship or a world where children starve? Of course both are important but Jim Wallis reminds us with considerable clarity and skill that God's heart is well and truly on the side of the poor rather than the theologically correct.

This latest edition brings us up to date to take into account 9/11, Iraq and anti poverty initiatives such as Make Poverty History. The context is different but the message is the same. If we truly claim to be different then our lifestyles and values will also be converted. That will be seen in how we respond to the poor and the weak. In how we are seen to be peacemakers.

He writes with authority having devoted much of his working life to the poor in Washington DC through the work of Sojourners. He pulls no punches - 'The poor are not our problem, we are their problem.'

This is not a comfortable read. It is not a comfortable message. But is essential reading for any who wish to take their faith seriously. Don't miss it!
The book that got the ball rolling  Mar 21, 2006
The reprint of this classic 1992 guide to incorporating one's faith in the public arena offers a passionate and personal discourse as how to put one's faith into practice without falling victim to partisan politics.
The Two Sides of Faith  Nov 3, 2005
Originally published in 1992, Wallis' new edition maintains the same themes, while updating the political, social, and personal illustrations, applications, and situations. As with his best selling, "God's Politics," Walllis defies easy classification on the political and social spectrum in "The Call to Conversion."

In a sense, his overarching theme is that of Jesus when asked to whom we should render obedience--God or the state. Wallis urges Christians to put their faith into action, but before he does so, he encourages them to ponder their personal faith, their personal relationship with God through Christ. For him, "conversion" is personal, yet it has corporate, societal, and even political implications.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction", "Soul Physicians," and "Spiritual Friends."
