Abstract:

"This volume presents a sampling of the best of "The Public Square." Culled from columns written from 1996 to 2000, these thirty-two insightful pieces range from reflections on theology, philosophy, and politics to education, bioethics, law, and family life. Each one demonstrates Neuhaus's authorial flair and keen intellect. As Neuhaus argues, "public life is mainly about culture, and at the heart of culture is morality, and at the heart of morality is religion." Few thinkers today can illumine this relationship as directly as Neuhaus. As a gathering of some of Neuhaus's finest recent columns, this volume is indispensable for those familiar with his work and a great introduction for those who should be."--Jacket.
