Jim Wallis, author of The (Un)Common Good, was interviewed by The Christian Post.

“The Sojourners president believes that liberals and conservatives both have a part to play in improving the common good.

“‘The best conservative idea is the idea of personality responsibility. I’ve never seen a problem solved or poverty overcome or the things I care about without personal responsibly as a part of the solution,’ said Wallis. ‘The best liberal idea is social responsibility: taking care of not just ourselves but taking care of each other.'”
