A commentator on ethics, religion and public life, Jim Wallis is founder and editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine. His Christian commitment to social justice evolved from his student years in the civil rights and anti-war movements, and, in '95, he helped form Call to Renewal, a national federation of churches, denominations and faith-based organizations across the political spectrum working to overcome poverty. Wallis also taught on faith, politics and society at Harvard's Divinity School and Kennedy School of Government and is a best-selling author.
