Harper San Francisco, which originally planned to publish Jim Wallis's book God's Politics: Why the Right Gets it Wrong, and the Left Doesn't Get It, in April, has decided to crash publish it for inauguration week due to the expected media response. During the first week of sales, the Sojourners founder will be featured on The O'Reilly Factor, Chris Matthews, NPR's Fresh Air and PBS's Charlie Rose, as well as appearing live for four hours of ABC's inaugural coverage with Peter Jennings. Wallis's book speaks about the need for ""a fuller, deeper, and richer conversation about religion in public life"" and offers a much-needed corrective to strident, conservative Christian voices in politics. Left-leaning Christians who believe that war and the economy are significant moral issues have found an articulate and passionate spokesman in Jim Wallis. .
