Less About Me; More About We: Judeo-Christian Moral Foundations of Liberal Thought [NOOK Book]

Overview

God reigns when we take a liberal view, when a liberal view is presented to us.
Henry David Thoreau

In spite of some of the popular, if uninformed, media assertions, âliberalâ is not a dirty word. It is a good word. It is a moral word. We are living in times where âmoral valuesâ (meaning primarily Judeo-Christian values in our culture) seem to be playing an increasing role in public discussions.

Overview

God reigns when we take a liberal view, when a liberal view is presented to us.
Henry David Thoreau

In spite of some of the popular, if uninformed, media assertions, âliberalâ is not a dirty word. It is a good word. It is a moral word. We are living in times where âmoral valuesâ (meaning primarily Judeo-Christian values in our culture) seem to be playing an increasing role in public discussions. Rarely, however, do these discussions include any serious discussion of what the Jewish and Christian Scriptures actually say about some of the conflicted issues of our day. The authors address if and how Judeo-Christian moral values may be related to liberal values within the context of selected socio/political issues.
This book is an answer to those who claim that liberalism is immoral and has a value base that is responsible for much that is wrong with our country. It seeks to provide a careful and rational response, in a specifically Judeo-Christian context, to some of the most divisive current issues: war, patriotism, the role of women, abortion, homosexuality, poverty, and a sustainable environment.
Using gentle and confident scholarship and reason, presented in a readable and understandable format, the authors seek to restore and energize a more informed Christian faith. It is designed to be read by everyone who is concerned about or alarmed by the political encroachments of the political and religious right. It is for liberals who are Christians and liberals who are not. It is for secularists and moderates who are concerned about religious freedom and the separation of church and state. It is for conservatives who may not agree with the arguments in the end, but who will understand the context and language in which they are made.
