Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

This book puts forward the most sophisticated and subtle treatment available on the relation between religion and politics and church (synagogue, mosque, temple) and state. Thiemann has taken our impoverished discourse on these matters to new heights and higher ground. -- Cornel West, author of Race Matters Of the large questions that have engaged and divided us Americans over the last generation, one of the most important and most difficult is this: What is the proper role of religion in American public life-in particular, in American politics? Religion in Public Life is a valuable contribution to the debate. Ronald Thiemann's voice is both thoughtful and distinctive. -- Michael J. Perry, Northwestern University Thiemann makes a major contribution to the argument about the role of religion in the future of the American republic. Its combination of clarity and conviction is a signal achievement in an environment where analytic precision and religious depth are so often adversaries. -- David Hollenbach, SJ, Margaret O'Brien Flatley Professor of Catholic Theology, Boston College
