A Provocative Work About the Christian Right


In “The Democratic Virtues of the Christian Right,” Jon A. Shields posits that the movement has fostered deliberative dialogue and careful moral reasoning.

If you wanted a book title to speed the pulse of liberal academics, journalists and politicians, you couldn’t do much better than “The Democratic Virtues of the Christian Right.” For many people that’s a title akin to “The Winning Ways of Serial Killers.”
