Throughout the years when the religious right was plotting for political power, there was a quietly subversive countermovement among evangelicals proclaiming a more authentic, biblical social witness. While the theocratic fundamentalism of Robertson, Falwell and Dobson grabbed headlines, evangelicals like Ron Sider, Tony Campolo and Sojourners’ Jim Wallis were taking a radically different position. Wallis in particular has modeled a contrasting politics. As a writer, preacher, activist and advocate for the poor, he represents that most formidable of transformational forces—an evangelical with a social conscience. His call for the evangelical faith to reclaim its prophetic place in the public square, and his tireless organizing to make it happen, is receiving increasing attention.
