Read what Jim Wallis of " Sojourners" has to say about his newest book.

Dear Larry,
"I never expected to write this book, and it's different than anything I have written in the past

From the first outline, it was my hope that Rediscovering Values: On Wall Street, Main Street, and Your Street would start a conversation about the deeper roots of this economic crisis, how we lost our way, and how to find it again. The book tries to provide A Moral Compass for the New Economy.

Yes, we need an economic recovery—but we also need a moral recovery. Sure, we all want to know when the recession will end. But it is more important to ask, "How will this crisis change us?"

We cannot go back to business as usual, because it is business as usual that got us into this mess. We need to replace what is "normal" with a "new normal." Rediscovering Values asks some of the most challenging moral questions about where we went wrong as individuals, communities, and as a nation.

If our friends, readers, and supporters are the first ones to buy the book, you will help put it on the bestseller lists and, most importantly, move it to the front of the bookstores, where others will most easily see it. That's what you did for God's Politics and The Great Awakening.

Help start the public conversation about values that we all need now. And start one yourself—on your street. Find out more about Rediscovering Values."

Jim Wallis
