In America today, is a Christian society possible? Is it even desirable? Yes and yes, says R. R. Reno. In fact, he warns, without a restoration of America as a Christian society, our culture will rapidly descend into an unhappy, shallow, lawless, and brutal place, divided more than ever between rich and poor, and vulnerable to elite demagogues. Taking his cue from T.S. Eliot’s famous essay The Idea of a Christian Society, Reno looks at how Christianity has been unseated as America’s moral center-point – and the terrible price we have paid.
R. R. Reno is one of America’s leading scholars of religion and politics. He is the editor of First Things magazine and the author of several books including In the Ruins of the Church and Redemptive Change.
