About The Event

Join Sojourners, the Calvin University Department of Sociology and Social Work, and the Calvin Center for Faith and Writing for an evening with renowned theologian, pastor, and bestselling author Jim Wallis, as he talks about his new book, Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Through his writing, Wallis offers a path to spiritual healing and solidarity, aimed to mend the divide separating Americans today.

With a practical and empathetic approach, Wallis addresses questions of power, truth, fear, and discipleship, applying lessons from the biblical stories to contemporary issues like race, immigration, and political discourse. As Wallis has done throughout his career, he both provokes and offers comfort, compassion, and a constructive field guide for the modern era.

This free event will be held in the Recital Hall at Calvin's Covenant Fine Arts Center (1795 Knollcrest Circle SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546). Books will be available for purchase and signing following the event.
