Rediscovering Values – a new book by Jim Wallis

Here are a few reviews:

” Jim Wallis argues persuasively that the financial crisis is also a moral crisis. A vivid storyteller and prophetic voice, he shows how the worship of markets has led us astray — and how repairing the economy requires a moral awakening and a new commitment to the common good. This wise and hopeful book points us toward a new economy and a more spiritually satisfying public life.” — Michael J. Sandel, professor of government at Harvard University and New York Times bestselling author of Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?

” One does not need to agree with Jim Wallis on everything to find Rediscovering Values insightful and timely. In our current economic struggles, Wallis sees an opportunity, not just for recovery, but for the renewal of important, neglected ideals. This is a needed voice at a challenging time.” — Mike Gerson, chief speechwriter to President George W. Bush, author of Heroic Conservatism, and a columnist for the Washington Post

“One of America’s most thoughtful, provocative and powerful prophetic voices does it again. With moral incisiveness expressed in terms accessible to all, Wallis impressively weaves together, economic theory, corporate realities, cultural analysis, and religious values to put a human face on, and bring moral clarity to, our economic crisis. His delineation of the responsibilities of corporate America ought to be studied in every corporation and business school. Religious leaders of any faith looking to address the corporate responsibility in our economic crisis will find no more eloquent, incisive or morally powerful guide than Rediscovering Values.”– David Saperstein — Director and Counsel of Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism

“Is it possible to change the world’s trajectory? Can we create a new moral compass in the aftermath of the recent economic crisis? In Rediscovering Values, Jim Wallis argues that the world can change when people of good faith make different choices and act collectively. Read this book and join the movement – Jim calls us, as Jesus did, to challenge the status quo by making ‘kingdom’ choices.”– Rich Stearns — President of World Vision US, author of The Hole in Our Gospel
