Editorial Reviews

George Weigel
It’s a rare thing, these days, to find minds capable of untying the knots into which the modern world has tied itself. This book is something rarer still: serious, knot-untying minds in conversation — the kind of conversation that has always been the hallmark of politics and philosophy at their best and most humane.
Wilfred M. McClay
Grasso and Castillo have here assembled a “dream team” of eminent thinkers who seek to deepen and enrich our ideas about the role of religion in public life. The result is a consistently lively and engaging volume, with a strong underlying message for the future: The recovery of a viable public philosophy will almost certainly need to find ways to draw on the substantive resources of religious thought and practice if it is to succeed.
Journal of Markets and Morality
Theology and Public Philosophy is an immeasurably valuable contribution to the ongoing contemporary debate on the role that theology can play in the development of an authentic public philosophy, especially given the theoretical and practical weaknesses of the liberal intellectual tradition and the models of social and political life that flow from within it.
