The Common Good

Trinity Debate: "On God's Side"

April 23, 2013 - 7:00pm
Speaker: Jim Wallis & Jay Richards

New York Times bestselling author Jim Wallis thinks our life together can be better. In his latest book, Jim shows us how to reclaim Jesus’ ancient and compelling vision of the common good—a vision that impacts and inspires not only our politics but also our personal lives, families, churches, neighborhoods, and world. He thinks it’s time to ask what it means to be on God’s side, rather than claim God to be on ours.

During the book tour for On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned About Serving the Common Good, Jim Wallis will make a stop at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School to engage in a conversation with Jay Richards about the common good. This discussion is part of the Trinity Debates series moderated by Dr. Chris Firestone.

The Trinity Debates are a series of discussions on challenging issues related to the church, theology, and the Christian life. These conversations include presentations by experts followed by a time of open discussion. This debate series is intended to be a community resource which fosters deeper reflection and dialogue on difficult topics. All Trinity Debates will be free and open to the public.
