Wallis is a leading figure at the crossroads of religion and politics in America today, the author of eight books, and the founder of Sojourners, a global faith and justice network. He is a public theologian, an internationally renowned speaker and preacher, a faith-based activist, husband, and father to two young boys, and a Little League baseball coach.

-Publishers Weekly

Laden with anecdotes, Wallis’ book claims a groundswell of progressive believers could accomplish social transformation that mere politics cannot deliver.

Offers insight into religious activism and the possibilities for a more progressive approach to religious engagement in the public square

This call to arms is approachable and inspiring . . . Wallis’s analysis of the role of faith, especially Christian faith, in embracing progressive ‘common good’ politics is highly astute and, overall, very compelling.
