Editorial Reviews

Review

"A joy to read . . . a return to an Augustine that Augustine himself would have recognized."
(Jason Byassee Christian Century)

"This is a phenomenal piece of scholarship. . . . Gregory respects no disciplinary boundaries and draws deeply from a number of different wells. Understanding the giants of Christian thought requires no less. Also, his reading of Augustine is astute and promisingly embedded in larger theological themes. Let Gregory's work be a model for how to read great Christian thinkers on various topics, including politics and social theory."
(Geoffrey C. Bowden History of Political Thought)

"This challenging and erudite book has much to offer both to those concerned with the relationship of Christianity to liberal democracy and those seeking to understand the Christian imperatives to love God and neighbor."
(Christopher R. Helton Interpretation)

". . . . Gregory offers an energizing contribution that is richly theological, philosophical, and sensitive to concrete reality by the very terms of his argument."
(Political Theology)

". . . . in the ranks of the most important studies in contemporary Augustinian political theology."
(Modern Theology)

". . . . if non-religious political theorists have one chance to hear an Augustinian voice, it should be Eric Gregory’s. This is a major contribution to contemporary discussions in religion and politics…anyone interested in Christian theology’s engagement with public life ought to read it."
(Books & Culture)

"Liberals of all stripes, and even non-liberals, need to read this book."
(Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
