What has Washington to do with Jerusalem? In the raging debates about the relationship between religion and politics, no one has explored the religious benefits and challenges of public engagement for Christian believers - until now. This ground-breaking book defends and details Christian believers' engagement in contemporary pluralistic public life not from the perspective of some neutral ‘public’, but from the particular perspective of Christian faith, arguing that such engagement enriches both public life and Christian citizens' faith themselves. As such it offers not a ‘public theology’, but a ‘theology of public life’, analyzing the promise and perils of Christian public engagement, discussing the nature of civic commitment and prophetic critique, and the relation of a loving faith to a liberal politics of justice. Theologically rich, philosophically rigorous, politically, historically and sociologically informed, this book advances contemporary discussion of ‘religion and public life’ in fundamental ways. • Introduces readers to relevant conversations in the fields of philosophy, political science, history, and sociology • Builds on the last few decades' revisionist appreciation of the thought of Augustine • Advances contemporary discussions of 'religion and public life' in fundamental ways Contents Introduction: life in the epilogue, during the world; Part I. A Theology of Engagement: Introduction; 1. Life before God; 2. Life in the world; 3. Life together; Part II. The Liturgy of Citizenship: Introduction; 4. Faithful citizenship; 5. Hopeful citizenship; 6. Charitable citizenship; Conclusion: The republic of grace; or, the public ramifications of heaven. Printed Pages: 400.
