The Calvin University Department of Sociology and Social Work and the Calvin Center for Faith and Writing are pleased to welcome Jim Wallis to Grand Rapids. A renowned theologian, New York Times bestselling author, Christian activist, and founder of Sojourners, Mr. Wallis will be discussing 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 offers comfort, compassion, and a constructive field guide for the modern era. This event is free and will be held at the Covenant Fine Arts Center Recital Hall at Calvin University at 7:00pm on Tuesday, December 3.
