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. 

While he directly addresses the dividing lines and dangers facing our nation, the focus of the religious and cultural commentator is not politics; it’s faith.
