The Religion of Democracy: Seven Liberals and the American Moral Tradition

The Religion of Democracy: Seven Liberals and the American Moral Tradition

Amy Kittelstrom

$49.99

Today we associate liberal politics with secularism. However, the role of religion in American politics has always been more complex than that: America has never had a president, democrat or republican, who has not openly stated that they are a Christian, for a start! The Religion of Democracy is a lively narrative of quintessentially American ideas as they were forged, debated and remade across history. Kittlestrom shows that the principles of liberty and equality did not emerge in opposition to religion but were actually forged by religion.
