Bestselling author, theologian, and founder of Sojourners, Jim Wallis discusses the end of the religious right's dominance in American politics and looks forward to new roles for faith in American society. In this discussion he asks what happens when politics fails to solve our most pressing problems and what role spirituality can play in public life.

Jim Wallis is founder of the Washington DC based organization Sojourners, which aims to articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspire hope and build a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world. The organization and it's members are guided by the biblical principles of justice, mercy, and humility.
