Church, State and Civil Society

Framsida
Cambridge University Press, 2 dec. 2004 - 222 sidor
The rich tradition of Christian political theology demands renewed attention, particularly at a time when secular liberalism is in crisis and when the civic contribution of religion is being re-assessed. This book explores the relationship of the church both to the state and civil institutions, drawing specifically on the concept of civil society. It offers a critical assessment of the effect of the First Amendment in the United States and, in a concluding chapter, defends the argument for continuing disestablishment in England and Scotland.
