Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This remarkable reader, despite its wide range of ideological and theological perspectives, holds something in common besides its subject matter: A high level of compelling ethical analysis and engagement. "—Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics, Union Theological Seminary Professor of Religion, Columbia University

"At a time when the word 'patriotism' is used as an ideological weapon to silence others, or is seen by some as mere jingoism, the essays collected in God and Country? offer welcome relief. The questions they pose and the variety of perspectives they represent are rich resources for Christians who want to examine both the meaning of patriotism and the responsible role of the Christian in national politics. An important contribution to the deepest religious and political challenges of our time."—Jon P. Gunnemann, Emory University
