Studies in Christian Ethics
"Nicholas Wolterstorff guides the reader through the world of political theology, in a way that is refreshingly clear and well reasoned. The book ... retain[s] the conversational tone and accessibility required in a lecture and desirable in any written introduction to a complex field. ... It is refreshingly Christian in its approach ... a lively analysis of the freedom the Church ought to enjoy in the liberal democratic state."
