Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"The late-modern impulse is to 'privatize' religion, to see it as a personal matter with little relevance for how citizens order their public lives together. One of the services provided by this rich and wide-ranging collection of essays on civil religion in the western political tradition is to show that it is impossible to think about religion without thinking about politics and to think about politics without thinking about religion. There can be no separation of religion and politics in the life of the mind or in the hearts and souls of human beings. Whether writing about classic figures in western political thought or contemporary American or Canadian approaches to civil religion, the contributors to this volume demonstrate the sheer indispensability of political philosophy for allowing us to confront the dual nature of human beings as political and religious animals."--Daniel J. Mahoney, Assumption College

"The term `civil religion' has become such an object of reflexive contempt among those who employ it that the term's analytical and descriptive purposes seem to have been forgotten. . . . There are good reasons to be profoundly wary of civil religion. But there are equally good reasons to be respectful of it. These essays are alive to both sets of reasons."--From the foreword by Wilfred M. McClay, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
