Throughout the writing process and the launch of his new book America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America, Jim Wallis has been affected by the conversations surrounding racial injustice other writers and activists are bringing to the fore. Jim considers these books "essential reading" to begin the conversation in your own churches, small groups, and beyond. The items are currently being bundled together on Amazon via the Purchase Now button, or you can find them individually.
