This book is a clear voice in times of crisis. Western societies are struggling with what is called the `disengagement drama'. Isolation, low trust and confusing searches for identity are the worries of many citizens in a postmodern situation. Perry Huesmann is not only analysing this situation, but also offers new perspectives. Interestingly, he opens the discussion about the meaning of covenantal structures in society. I must say, he re-opens this discussion, because he makes clear that we have to speak a moral language that was almost forgotten. In strengthening our social bonds of trust and community as a basis for society as an ethical commonwealth, we can avoid the pitfalls of modernism and find new and better ways for social life. Dr. Roel Kuiper, professor Christian Philosophy, Erasmus University Rotterdam
