Rumors of the Death of the Culture War


Those rumors are exaggerated, according to Peter Steinfels, who asks "what will this retreat of the religious right mean for the future of the culture wars?," and answers "Combat may wane, at least a little, at least for a while. But there are good reasons to doubt any lasting truce, let alone a real peace."

Also, John Wilson issues the first of a promised two-part series reflecting on a few of the worthier (amidst a pile of unworthy) titles treating Christians and Politics. He calls attention to a forthcoming work of which I was unaware: Steven Waldman's Founding Faith: Providence, Politics, and the Birth of Religious Freedom in America -- with more discussion of that to follow in a future post.
