What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"A timely, informed study on how Biblical faith relates to world politics. Curry provides a splendid defense of democratic capitalism."
Mark R. Amstutz, Professor of Political Science, Wheaton College

"In this thoughtful and well-reasoned work, Dean Curry has performed a signal service by taking a fresh look at the relationship of Christian faith to international politics... uncompromising in its preference for freedom over tyranny, and rightly critical of the utopianism that pervades so much of contemporary Christian thought."
Alberto R. CollCharles H. Stockton Professor of International Law, United States Naval War College

"Curry has an impressive grasp of a broad array of foreign policy issues, and articulately weaves in a Biblical perspective for many of the international issues that will face us in the 1990s."
Walter H. Kansteiner IIIU.S. Department of State, Policy Planning Staff
