The re-enchantment of political science: Christian scholars engage their discipline

Front Cover
Lexington Books, 2001 - Religion - 266 pages
Religion and politics appear together in newspaper headlines more today than ever before. Questions about the relationship between religion and politics -- on theoretical, historical, and behavioral levels -- are likewise heavily debated behind the front pages, by scholars in political science who demonstrate the "new Christian thinking". The Re-Enchantment of Political Science engages these scholars in an interdisciplinary conversation concerning the identity and ends of Christian political science. It considers whether and to what extent the community of Christian scholarship, within its own narrative religious traditions, can add a distinctive and significant dimension to the discipline of political science.
