"Greg Forster has written a very good and timely book on the political theory of John Locke. It is very good because it is well researched, clearly written, and provocative in its discussion and analysis...I wholeheartedly recommend Forster's very fine work for its valuable contributions to Lockean scholarship and for its thoughtful and challenging contributions to contemporary political theory." -Brett Wilmot, The Journal of Religion
The aim of this highly original book is twofold: to explain the reconciliation of religion and politics in the work of John Locke, and to explore the relevance of that reconciliation for politics in our own time. Greg Forster demonstrates that Locke's theory is liberal and rational but also moral and religious, providing an alternative to the two extremes of religious fanaticism and moral relativism.
