This is a good book that had to be written, and it is our great fortune that Robert Benne has written it with such scholary care, engaging lucidity,and persuasive force. The tangled connections between ultimate truth and penulimate questions of the public order are here untangled with great skill and imagination. The paradoxical Vision is both and admirable summary of religion and society disputes of the last several decades and a bracing proposal for thinking more clearly and acting more intelligently in the years ahead.
What are the implications of a person's faith for Christian social ethics? Robert Benne elaborates a basic theological-ethical framework for engaging the Christian vision with its surrounding public environment--political, ethical, cultural, and intellectual. He offers practical ways in which religious traditions do, in fact, engage the public environment.
