About this book

Dialectical Democracy through Christian Thought offers an accessible yet theologically groundbreaking intervention into the battle over the role of government in the market. This book shows that the fight over policy involves a fundamental disagreement about who we are as human beings: independent individuals, or essentially social creatures.

Reviews

David Brockman's new book offers us a major re-interpration of the relevance of Christian theology, and in particular theological anthropology, to understanding the deep divisions within American society. His own deeply Christian perspective opens up ways through the current impasse in contemporary politics. - Kenneth Cracknell, President Emeritus of the Cambridge Theological Federation

Many people today assume that the political, economic, and religious polarization that is the subject of this book can be overcome by assuming that 'the truth lies in the middle.' The great merit of David Brockman's work is that he develops alternatives rather than seeking compromise, armed with fresh readings of the Christian heritage and a commitment to its prophetic challenges. - Joerg Rieger, Wendland-Cook Professor of Constructive Theology, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, US
