Publisher's Summary

America's two greatest strengths - her liberal democratic culture and her free market economy - have made her a global superpower. But left unchecked, these two strengths can become great cultural weaknesses, sowing selfishness, recklessness, and apathy. In Resurrecting the Idea of a Christian Society, theologian R. R. Reno argues that America needs a renewal of Christian ideals - ideals that encourage self-sacrifice, responsibility, and solidarity. Drawing on T.S. Eliot's 1940 essay "The Idea of a Christian Society", Reno shows how Christianity encourages "an abiding ambition for higher things" and a "moral vision" that can strengthen communities and transform America into a truly great nation.

Maybe too comforting

Reno provides an interesting diagnosis of our present problems, but he provides little guidance about how a better society can be created other than his conclusions suggestion that all will somehow turn out well in the end. Christians believe that the church will endure, but the title of the book suggests that it will outline more than that belief.

The reader has a mellifluous voice but he mispronounces numerous words.
