Publisher's Summary

America's two greatest strengths - her liberal democratic culture and her free market economy - have made her a global superpower. But left unchecked, these two strengths can become great cultural weaknesses, sowing selfishness, recklessness, and apathy. In Resurrecting the Idea of a Christian Society, theologian R. R. Reno argues that America needs a renewal of Christian ideals - ideals that encourage self-sacrifice, responsibility, and solidarity. Drawing on T.S. Eliot's 1940 essay "The Idea of a Christian Society", Reno shows how Christianity encourages "an abiding ambition for higher things" and a "moral vision" that can strengthen communities and transform America into a truly great nation.

    "Good book, bad production"

    I liked this book. It diagnoses the problems of the post-modern West and proposes hopeful remedies. But what kept me from enjoying the book more than I did was the bad production value. The audio quality was inconsistent and copy/pasting was obvious and distracting. The narrator was fine, but there were occasional words he wasn't familiar with and pronounced wrong. That's usually forgivable, but given the bad overall production it was more annoying than it would have been otherwise.

    Story
    "Maybe too comforting"

    Reno provides an interesting diagnosis of our present problems, but he provides little guidance about how a better society can be created other than his conclusions suggestion that all will somehow turn out well in the end. Christians believe that the church will endure, but the title of the book suggests that it will outline more than that belief.

    The reader has a mellifluous voice but he mispronounces numerous words.
