Political Engagement as Biblical Mandate

Paperback / softback
A collection of essays that looks at the infusion of public debate and religious arguments with particular focus on American public forum. With the current climate of argument as to the maturing of our culture into a post-Christian secularism and the increase in religious and ideological diversity, the free expression of religious ideas in public debate exacerbates civic tension and undermines a society's ability to solve its most urgent problems. This book seeks to make the case that religiously informed thought has played and can continue to play a constructive role in the public forum over domestic and international issues that are weighted with moral content.
