Overview

In Religious Convictions and Political Choice, Kent Greenawalt challenges the theories of such political thinkers as John Rawls and Bruce Ackerman, who argue that citizens and officials in a liberal democracy should eschew religiously based premises in developing political judgments and limit themselves to secular conceptions of justice and publicly accessible methods of determining facts. Beginning with an account of the basic premises of our political system, Religious Convictions and Political Choice examines the full dimensions of this issue of intense contemporary relevance, and compels a fundamental reexamination of the place of religion in the political life of a liberal democracy.
