In Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously
, editor Jeremy A. Evans establishes that separation of church and state is not a principle of the United States Constitution (or any other founding document). Thus, there should be a social interest in not hindering any religious person's full participation in the American marketplace of ideas. As such, Evans addresses readers from both the Christian and non-Christian communities through the related scholarship here, knowing either side's failure to consider one's well-prepared thoughts in science, politics, and education undermines the very idea of seeking the truth.Topics include:
- The death penalty
- John Rawls' theory of public reason
- Whether or not a non-voting stance is permissible for Christians
- Religious disagreement and its impact on the justification of religious beliefs
- How the current models of scientific explanation are not incompatible with religious beliefs
- Creation care-what is our responsibility to the environment?
