Summary "'Should the church get into politics? ... Calvinism has always been explicitly concerned with civil matters, always regarded political indifference as a mark not of superior piety but of defective ethics. If there is to be a 'Christian political philosophy' for our century, it may well be based on the legacy of the Calvinist tradition. This important book presents that heritage in its historic movement through many stages, from Calvin himself down to its representation in Woodrow Wilson. These essays originated as The Woodrow Wilson Lectures on church and state, presented by outstanding American historians under the auspices of the National Presbyterian Church and Center."--Jacket.
