Publisher's Summary

Writing in response to our current “constitutional crisis”, New York Times best-selling author and Christian activist Jim Wallis urges America to return to the tenets of Jesus once again as the means to save us from the polarizing bitterness and anger of our tribal nation.

In Christ in Crisis Jim Wallis provides a path of spiritual healing and solidarity to help us heal the divide separating Americans today. Building on “Reclaiming Jesus” - the declaration he and other church leaders wrote in May 2018 to address America’s current crisis - Wallis argues that Christians have become disconnected from Jesus and need to revisit their spiritual foundations. By pointing to eight questions Jesus asked or is asked, Wallis provides a means to measure whether we are truly aligned with the moral and spiritual foundations of our Christian faith. 

“Christians have often remembered, re-discovered, and returned to their obedient discipleship of Jesus Christ - both personal and public - in times of trouble. It’s called coming home,” Wallis reminds us. While he addresses the dividing lines and dangers facing our nation, the religious and cultural commentator’s focus isn’t politics; it’s faith.

As he has done throughout his career, Wallis offers comfort, empathy, and a practical roadmap. Christ in Crisis is a constructive field guide for all those involved in resistance and renewal initiatives in faith communities in the post-2016 political context.

2 Chronicles 7:14

As a retired US Army Chaplain, a number of family and friends have been praying for God to lead us to a fresh and needed move of the Holy Spirit. The message of this book has filled me with joy, faith and great hope!

"...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Please read this book and don’t give up

If you grew up in church and are thinking about giving it all up because of how you see so called christians and pastors acting out the gospel of the USA, this will encourage you to find your own path actually following Jesus.

sad book of politics

clearly the author has an anti President Trump agenda. the author needs to recheck his facts. the liberal media does not always tell the whole story.

Prayerful, Peaceful, and Thoughtful Work

I found Jim Wallis to be a very thoughtful writer, who points all of us in the direction of discovering Jesus in todays chaotic world. It doesn't matter which side of the political spectrum you come from, reclaiming Jesus in your life will be beneficial to everyone around you. For years I have thought that the evangelicals had a corner on my church. Thanks Jim for making me think about how I was raised and what it means to reclaim those values..
