The first in a two-part series on influential leaders who are reshaping Evangelical Christianity from within progressive and conservative circles. Jim Wallis founded "Sojourners" and now advises presidential candidates and world leaders in what he calls the "post-Religious Right" era. He is determined to put poverty at the top of America's "moral values" agenda.
About the Image
In June 2007, Democratic presidential candidates joined Reverend Jim Wallis (second from right) for a public forum on faith, values, and poverty in Washington, DC. Sojourners, the largest national network of "progressive" Christians founded by Wallis, sponsored the event in which former Sen. John Edwards (far left), Sen. Hillary Clinton (second from left), and Sen. Barack Obama (far right) attended.
