Overview

"The relationship between America and Christianity has never been so hotly contested as it is today. September 11, 2001, and the war on terrorism have had an almost schismatic impact on the Church. American Christians have been forced to ask really hard questions about the relationship of their faith to politics."

He also makes the case for a robust doctrine of providence - doctrine that has been frequently neglected by American theologians due to their reluctance to claim any special status for the United States. In this book, Webb goes right to the heart of this reluctance by defending the idea that American foreign policy should be seen as a vehicle of God's design for history.
