Abraham Lincoln is said to have remarked that he wasn't concerned about whether or not God was on his side. Instead, he was more concerned about being on God's side. In his new book, theologian Jim Wallis explores what it means to be aligned with the divine in an age of political dysfunction and bitter hyper-partisanship. Wallis joins us to discuss his book "On God's Side," and his call for a national conversation on the meaning of "the common good" in both our politics and our personal lives.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners, a national Christian social justice organization, and author of "On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned About Serving the Common Good"
