Named Best Book (Culture) in the 2004 Word Guild Canadian Writing Awards! The end of the Cold War has brought about more than the triumph of some political ideologies and the disappearance of others. In fact, the collapse of communism has created a vacuum quickly being filled by various alternative visions, ranging from ethnic nationalism to individualistic liberalism. But political ideologies are not merely a matter of governmental efficacy. Rather, political ideologies are intrinsically and inescapably religious--each carries certain assumptions about the nature of reality, individuals and society, as well as a particular vision for the common good. These fundamental beliefs transcend the political sphere, and the astute Christian observer should thus discern the subtle ways in which ideologies are rooted in idolatrous worldviews. In this comprehensive study, political scientist David Koyzis surveys the key political ideologies of our era, including liberalism, conservatism, nationalism, democracy and socialism. Each philosophy is given careful analysis and fair critique, unpacking the worldview issues inherent to each and pointing out essential strengths and weaknesses. Koyzis concludes by proposing alternative models that flow out of Christianity's historic engagement with the public square, retrieving approaches that hold promise for the complex political realities of the twenty-first century. Writing with broad, international perspective and keen analytical insight, Koyzis offers a sound guide for Christians working in the public square, culture watchers, political pundits and all students of modern political thought.

Does religion have a place in politics? Anyone following current events knows that there exists a tremendous debate on the influence of religion, especially the Christian religion, on elections, the creation of laws, and the interpretation of these laws by judges. But these debates often focus on a few narrowly defined topics, rarely acknowledging the history, breadth, and diversity of Christian activism in modern political culture across the globe. The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics reveals the global reach and relevance of Christian political activities, examining how individuals, reform groups, and political organizations have employed Christian principles in participating in politcs at a local, national, and global scale. The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics examines Christian political involvement from the American and French Revolutions to the present day. It focuses on those prominent people, organizations, and reform groups - Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox -- that have had a significant impact on politics. Entries include: BL Individuals - BL Political Parties - BL Organizations -- With an overview essay and a general bibliography of works suitable for further research, this encyclopedia provides an excellent starting point for understanding the profound influence of Christianity in world today.

Arguing that Americans make political choices in terms of a general notion of right and wrong, yet lack a sound, objective foundation for such values, evangelical scholar Stephen Mott formulates a Christian political theory that supplies such norms. Drawing on theological and biblical sources, Mott thoroughly develops the biblical and theological foundations for politics and political evaluation. Mott proposes that political philosophies should be evaluated in light of Christian theological and ethical values--specifically the understanding of power, human nature, the nature of group life, justice and love, government, and time. He then applies this critical framework in an evaluation of political ideologies, including traditional conservatism, liberalism, democracy, laissez-faire conservatism, Marxist socialism, and democratic socialism. He gives special attention to their classical exponents and ideas. Asserting that political visions ultimately depend on cultural values that themselves require vigorous religious faith in a particular society, Mott's study offers a valuable introduction to Christian political thought as well as an illuminating look at the connection between politics and religion.

Es gibt nur wenige Klassiker der modernen politischen Philosophie - Eric Voegelins Die neue Wissenschaft der Politik ist einer von ihnen. Ihre Erstveröffentlichung 1952 in den USA zog durch eine Titelgeschichte vom Time Magazine sogleich breite Aufmerksamkeit auf sich und brachte dem Autor den Ruf eines Theoretikers von Rang ein. Sie ist im besten Sinne des Wortes eine Streit- und zugleich eine Programmschrift. In dezidierter Frontstellung gegen das positivistische Wissenschaftsverständnis unternimmt der Autor den Versuch, die politische Wissenschaft in Anknüpfung an die Tradition der klassischen episteme politike als eine Wissenschaft von menschlicher und gesellschaftlicher Ordnung neu zu begründen. In ihrem Mittelpunkt stehen, neben der Frage nach dem Wesen der Rationalität, eine Philosophie der Geschichte mit einer ebenso kritischen wie kontroversen Deutung der westlichen Modernität. Als "ein Werk von exzeptioneller Qualität" brachte Die neue Wissenschaft der Politik Voegelin den begehrten Lippencott Award der American Political Science Association ein. Auch heute, ein halbes Jahrhundert nach ihrem ersten Erscheinen, hat sie nichts von ihrer ursprünglichen Frische, Aktualität und intellektuellen Brillanz verloren.
