The Common Good

Carter Presidential Library & Museum: "On God's Side"

May 15, 2013 - 7:00pm
Speaker: Jim Wallis

On May 15, Jim Wallis, bestselling author, public theologian, national preacher, social activist, and international commentator on ethics and public life, will discuss his new book, On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned About the Common Good.

Michael Gerson, op-ed columnist at The Washington Post says, "There is no message more timely or urgent than his call to actively consider the common good." Rev. Gabriel Salguero, president, National Latino Evangelical Coalition, adds "Jim Wallis is asking a question whose time has come. Are we pursuing a national agenda that seeks the common good or are we seeking to baptize our political agendas with faith? Leaders both religious and political must take Wallis' challenge seriously when pondering the future of our life together."

This event is free and open to the public. A book signing will follow the lecture.
