Americas two greatest strengthsher liberal democratic culture and her free-market economyhave 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 idealsideals that encourage self-sacrifice, responsibility, and solidarity. Drawing on T.S. Eliots 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.
