The Weekly Hit List: November 1, 2013

On Gods SideJim Wallis, author of On God’s Side, was interviewed by Ian Matthews for Aslan Christian Books.

“How do you respond to those who believe that faith has no place in the public square at all?”

“Faith transcends politics. It should be lived out in our public life for the common good. The challenge facing people of all faiths is how we rise above political ideology and lead on moral grounds. Our public life could be improved and even transformed if our religious traditions practiced what they preached in all parts of our lives. People of all religions need to show how faith can promote, not hinder the common good.”

Responding to Economic Injustice

The collapse of financial systems and the resulting economic crisis have caused a growing distrust of the way things operate. Why has the global economy become so unfair, unsustainable, and unstable, with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? A conversation about how the market should operate within a moral framework is needed now more than ever.

Jim Wallis shows that God requires a different kind of economy—both globally and domestically—and provides principles that should guide economic policy matters, including clarity, transparency, accountability, and protecting the common good against private greed. Our financial institutions require real reform, but so do our own economic choices, desires, and demands, for they have far-reaching consequences. Wallis explores things we can all do to help fix the financial crisis and suggests making “Ten Personal Decisions for the Common Good.”
