"What a riveting account, compelling, provocative, and inspirational, of the kind of faith that can move mountains, that can certainly move people and communities–an engaged, vibrant faith because it proves faith works. Just the recipe as we begin a new year and a new millennium. God be praised for Jim Wallis."
–Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"Jim Wallis’s brilliant insights on spirituality in action, based upon his rich experiences as an activist preacher, will inspire socially conscious readers across the ideological and political spectrum. Faith Works is an engaging and thoughtful book. Wallis’s positive vision of faith, including his view of the role of faith-based organizations in addressing poverty and other pressing national problems, is moving and compelling."
–William Julius Wilson, professor, Harvard University
"Shimmering with the vitality and passion of its author, this remarkable book speaks to both policy makers searching for ways to overcome poverty and to ordinary citizens hoping to make a difference beyond their own lives. If it will take a movement–as it always does–to challenge the status quo and bring about social justice, Faith Works should be its manifesto. The next time a politician asks himself, ‘What Would Jesus Do?,’ hand him this book. Jim Wallis provides the answer."
–Arianna Huffington, syndicated columnist and
author of How to Overthrow the Government
"Lovely and practical, Faith Works is a gentle and inspiring guidebook to being a good citizen and a good human being."
"In his wonderful book Faith Works, Reverend Wallis shows us how to turn faith and love into action and how to transform our beliefs, hopes, and good intentions into catalysts for needed changes in our world."
–Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children’s Defense Fund
