|Summary:||Taking his cue from T. S. Eliot's famous essay The idea of a Christian society, Reno analyzes how and why he feels America has grown away from being a Christian society and makes the argument to again work toward that ideal.
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.
