Praise for the Book

“Jim Wallis marches among our hardiest and most steadfast pioneers on the path to a more perfect union and a more vibrant faith. America’s Original Sin is a powerful act of Spirit-led truth telling and a loving disruption of the status quo. Wallis calls us to transcend racial categories and to see in one another the image of God. He points out the structural realities of sinful racism and makes clear that to be redeemed, we must do more than deny it. Like Joshua reporting from the land of Canaan, Wallis finds unseen hopes and rich fruit if we will walk as well as talk and cross the bridge to a new America. America’s Original Sin is required reading for all who believe in the promises of God, hope for the American democracy, and long to see the power of a justice ethos grounded in love.”
