(ETHOS Institute™ Engagement Series)
The purpose of this book is to explore how Christians may find common moral grounds with fellow citizens so that they can work together for the betterment of the commonwealth. It explores certain social realities that must be accepted by all citizens, in particular, the condition of the public arena with its dominant political paradigm of secular democracy; and how one can use common values as the minimum moral framework for social interaction—consistent with the natural law theory.
