The election of Donald Trump and the presidency that has followed —and the Christian response to all of it—have revealed how disconnected many American Christians have become from Jesus.

ABOUT CHRIST IN CRISIS

In Christ in Crisis, bestselling author, renowned speaker, and iconic Christian activist Jim Wallis argues that our cultural and political crisis largely stems from how the American church has become disconnected from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Building on the popular and controversial “Reclaiming Jesus” declaration he and other church leaders wrote in May 2018 to address America’s moral crisis—to which 5 million people responded—Wallis points to eight radical questions central to Jesus’ teaching: the Neighbor Question, the Image Question, the Truth Question, the Power Question, the Fear Question, the Caesar Question, the Peacemaker Question, and the Discipleship Question. By asking ourselves these questions, we can measure whether we are thinking and acting “in Jesus’ name.” As he has done throughout his career, Wallis’s prophetic vision and pastoral wisdom both provoke and counsel, guiding us forward during this time of confusion and fear. He reveals how following the teachings of Jesus emboldens and empowers us to “be not afraid”, but to act in courage and hope.

It's always amazing to me how apparently Jesus has survived all of us Christians.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CHRIST IN CRISIS

“A spiritual health-check for the ailing, wheezing American body-politic. As Jim writes, 'Don’t go right, don’t go left; go deeper.’”

BONO

“For far too long, we’ve ceded the power and person of Jesus to political movements with no ambitions toward His radical love. Reclaiming Jesus is not only our responsibility, it is necessary now more than ever. This is a book for right now, for all God’s people.”

BRITTANY PACKNETT

Co-Founder of Campaign Zero

“This is Jim Wallis at his best, a “Jesus book” better than any I’ve seen in some time, and could not be more timely or more challenging. It offers a drink of fresh water to anyone who has felt despair at the state of the world—Christian and non-Christian alike.”

RICHARD ROHR

Author, The Universal Christ

“Hold this book in your hands like a moral compass. With mastery and clarity, Jim Wallis has crafted a handbook for our times — a way to interpret Jesus’ life and wisdom for a nation in crisis, to inspire Christians and non-Christians alike in the labor of love and justice.”

VALARIE KAUR

Sikh Activist and Founder of the Revolutionary Love Project 

“To choose to follow Jesus is necessarily to engage in a quarrel with the world, which Jim Wallis has reminded us for fifty years. This is a timely reminder of what it means to confess ‘Jesus is Lord’.”

WILLIAM J. BARBER II

Co-Chair of the Poor People’s Campaign

“Jim Wallis offers those weary of our world’s hopelessness a choice and a way out. A compelling 'must read' for those seeking to follow Jesus by loving the "neighbor" who is not like us, as the first step in reclaiming Jesus and ending the crisis of our time!”

BARBARA WILLIAMS-SKINNER

President, Skinner Leadership Institute

“The Quran says that Jesus is a wonder and a mercy to humankind. In this book Jim Wallis shows us just how much we need to return to those central Jesus qualities, and to embody them ourselves. It is a book that is both timely and timeless.”

EBOO PATEL

Author, Out of Many Faiths: Religious Diversity and the American Promise

“Jim Wallis gives us a book that could well be titled Following Jesus Again for the First Time. With prophetic fire, he shows that the political and religious crises of our time arise from a failure of following the Jesus of the New Testament. Read this book and go deep.”

DIANA BUTLER BASS, PH.D.

Author, Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening

“In times that are testing who we are as a nation and a people, Reverend Wallis reminds us of the lifeboat that has been there for us all along: faith. Christ in Crisis calls us back to the most fundamental lessons of the gospel, reminding each of us -- and our country -- that acts of compassion, service, dignity and grace are not just the acts of a faithful Christian, but the path towards a stronger, kinder nation.”

RECLAIMING JESUS NOW

with Jim Wallis

“Our nation is in crisis. The questions Christ posed in his day, about truth, power, justice and of anyone who claimed to be his followers, offer clues for facing our current moment.” - Jim Wallis

Reclaiming Jesus Now with Jim Wallis is a ten-episode podcast series on the themes of JimWallis’ new book, Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Wallis is joined by two voices from a rising generation of activists, William Matthews and Allison Trowbridge, who seek to reconcile their own spiritual journeys with the present spiritual and political crises we face today.

Jim Wallis’ new book, and the conversations in this podcast, are organized around eight timeless and provocative questions Jesus Christ asked or provoked while pursuing his call: The Neighbor Question, The Image Question, The Truth Question, The Power Question, The Fear Question, The Caesar Question, The Peacemaker Question, and The Discipleship Question. 

These questions confront all of us with an invitation and a choice. How will you respond?
