IF YOU READ JUST ONE BOOK THIS YEAR, MAKE IT THIS ONE

Here's a review of Christian Faith and Modern Democracy: God and Politics in the Fallen World. By Robert P. Kraynak (Damon Linker, First Things)

I took a couple of courses with Mr. Kraynak at Colgate twenty years ago and he was the best professor I ever had, either there or in law school. In this provocative book he argues that "modern liberal democracy needs God, but God is not as liberal or as democratic as we would like Him to be."
