In a world torn apart by religious extremism on the one side and
a strident secularism on the other, no question is more urgent than
how we live with our deepest differences--especially our religious
and ideological differences. "The Case for Civility" is a proposal
for restoring civility in America as a way to foster civility
around the world. Influential Christian writer and speaker Os
Guinness makes a passionate plea to put an end to the polarization
of American politics and culture that--rather than creating a
public space for real debate--threatens to reverse the very
principles our founders set into motion and that have long
preserved liberty, diversity, and unity in this country.
Guinness takes on the contemporary threat of the excesses of the
Religious Right and the secular Left, arguing that we must find a
middle ground between privileging one religion over another "and"
attempting to make all public expression of faith illegal. If we do
not do this, Guinness contends, Western civilization as we know it
will die. Always provocative and deeply insightful, Guinness puts
forth a vision of a new, practical "civil and cosmopolitan public
square" that speaks not only to America's immediate concerns but to
the long-term interests of the republic and the world.
