Jim Wallis Virtual Course on Faith, Social Justice, and Public Life

Wallis_jim
How does faith inform public debates on social justice in American politics? How should religious leaders and politicians engage the political process while maintaining their moral witness? In fall 2010 Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners, taught a Georgetown course that addresses these questions. He took the class through a series of topics including poverty, economics, immigration, climate change, and war and peace issues. Prominent guest speakers including Michael Gerson and Elizabeth Warren helped to frame the critical issues. The content of the course, including syllabus, lectures, and recommended readings, are available here for a worldwide audience. It has been updated with material from the fall 2011 and fall 2012 semesters.

The course is made possible through the generosity of Lyra Rufino-Maceda.
