‘Jim Wallis is compelling…’

Jim Wallis

Having watched The Revd Wallis from afar through his books and his entertaining appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart it was a pleasure to finally meet the man. The context – an underground vault at the Commonwealth Club in the heart of London (just off Trafalgar Square). The assignment was on behalf of The Baptist Times who were interviewing him about his most recent book and his visit to the UK (he had just harangued the House of Commons to do more for the poor). Amusing, wise and passionate it made for a half-hour of challenging insight. Desmond Tutu was right.
