I thought readers might like to see a couple of blurbs for Gerson and Wehner’s City of Man: Religion and Politics in a New Era.
“Figuring out the appropriate relationship between politics and religion for Christians is a daunting task. Yet Michael Gerson and Peter Wehner have succeeded brilliantly. In City of Man, they spell out a political theology for 21st century Christians that rejects the narrow thinking of the Religious Right and the creeping secularism of the Religious Left. City of Man is a two-fer. It’s an enormously important book on politics and on religion.”
—Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, the Weekly Standard
“In recent American history, the mixture of religion and politics has all too often produced inflated rhetoric, demonization of opponents, runaway hyperbole, and mindless demagoguery. City of Man is different. It pulls back from the heat of conflict to seek light from Scripture, Christian tradition, and a measured analysis of American political history. Although I have voted “none of the above” in many presidential elections, I’m confident that what these veterans of the Bush White House have written will help Christian believers of any political persuasion to act more responsibly in the public square.
