CAJ Chapel in San Diego - February 14. 2016

“In this book, longtime church leader Charles Davis applies a distinctively missionary analysis to the worn-out ecclesiologies of our time. But it’s not all critique and analysis: built on narrative and experience, he lovingly provides the church with a very useful diagnostic tool that gives us viable pathways toward renewal of church life and mission. I am grateful for this book.”
Alan Hirsch, founding director of Forge Missional Training Network and author of The Forgotten Ways

America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America

Sponsored by the City Club of San Diego and First United Methodist Church
Bestselling author and leading Christian activist explores America’s deep-rooted problem with race.
Fifty years ago, Jim Wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo. His participation in the civil rights movement brought him back when he discovered a faith that commands racial justice. Yet as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from the legacy of racism. In his new book, America’s Original Sin, Wallis offers a prophetic and deeply personal call to action in overcoming the racism so ingrained in American society.



Jim Wallis is an author, activist, preacher, teacher, and pastor. He is a best-selling writer, convener of faith-inspired movements for justice and peace both outside and inside politics, public theologian in a secular culture, renowned speaker in the United States and abroad, and international media commentator on ethics and public life.Autographed books available for purchase.
