Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Robert Benne’s thoughtful take on the right relation between religion and politics is both theologically perceptive and politically shrewd. Our politics would be better if those active in the public square followed his wise and balanced prescriptions.”
— James Nuechterlein
Senior Editor at Large, First Things

“Drawing on the classic traditions of both Protestantism and Catholicism, Benne artfully states contemporary theological options and outlines the practical implications for both believers and practicing policy-makers on the most controversial issues. Excellent for clergy and politically interested laity alike.”
— Max L. Stackhouse
Princeton Theological Seminary

“Bob Benne’s engaging and provocative analysis of religion and politics deserves close attention by those on both sides of the debates that currently roil our polity and churches.”
— Robert Tuttle
George Washington University
