What will it take to solve the biggest issues of our time: extreme and needless poverty, global warming and environmental degradation, terrorism and the endless cycle of violence, racism, human trafficking, health care and education, and other pressing problems? While Washington offers only the politics of blame and fear, Jim Wallis, the man who changed the conversation about faith and politics, has traveled the country and found a nation hungry for a politics of solutions and hope. He shows us that a revival is happening, as people of faith and moral conviction seek common ground for change.

Wallis also reminds us that religious faith was a driving force behind our greatest national reforms, such as the abolition of slavery and the civil rights movement. These "great awakenings" happened periodically at crucial times in our nation's history to propel us toward the common good. The time is ripe for another movement that will transform this country. With The Great Awakening, Wallis helps us rediscover our moral center and provides both the needed inspiration and a concrete plan to hold politics accountable and find solutions to our greatest challenges.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nick | 2/15/2014

    " This is an explicit follow-up to Wallis' "God's Politics" and as such it is a combined review of the interaction of religion and politics and of the issues of importance to people of faith as of the present moment. It is a good book, but for me it was less gripping by far than the earlier book. "

    " I would recommend reading the introduction to this book, but I have to say that I was unimpressed with the rest of it. I think Wallis is definitely right in pointing out that change is happening, and the religious voice is going to becoming more multi-voiced, but I disagree with Wallis in laying the partisanship problems primarily at the feet of the religious right. I was disappointed in the book because it felt like a list of all the problems in the world, and it didn't offer any real solutions or suggestions to fix the problems. "

    " Great ideas, hard to implement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Justin | 2/4/2014

    " Pretty close to a 5-star book for me. It's challenging to both the right and left, and even though I agree with the majority of Wallis's ideas, I don't feel comfortable with my relationship to them. "
