In perilous and polarizing times, where is our true north – our fixed point in a spinning world?

Rev. Jim Wallis, in his new book Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus suggests that a focus on eight questions asked by, or of, Jesus provide a solid compass for people of faith.

“Who is my neighbor?” is a question posed to Jesus by a lawyer. Pontius Pilate inquired of Jesus, “What is truth?” What is Jesus telling us when he repeatedly tells us “Be not afraid?” In exploring these and other questions, Wallis provides a path of spiritual grounding and solidarity to help us heal the divide separating Americans today. He gives us a field-guide to determine whether we are truly aligned with the moral and spiritual foundations of our Christian faith.

Wallis speaks about coming home to our values in times of trouble – both personal and public – through Christian discipleship. While he directly addresses the dividing lines and dangers facing our nation, the religious and cultural commentator’s focus isn’t politics; it’s faith.
