Publisher's description: A thoughtful meditation on the relationship between Christian belief and the demands of American citizenship Drawing on her personal experience as well as her knowledge of American religious history, renowned author Diana Butler Bass examines the highly controversial topic of the relationship between church and state-and between Christian identity and personal patriotism-in America. Detailing how the historic relationship between Christian identity and secular citizenship has been in conflict for centuries, Bass argues that religious nationalism is a dangerous idea in an age of terror. Diana Butler Bass (Alexandria, VA) is the author of two critically acclaimed books on mainline religion: Strength for the Journey (0-7879-5578-7)and Standing Against the Whirlwind. She is currently directs the Project on Congregations of Intentional Practice, funded by the Eli Lilly Endowment.
Drawing on her personal experience as well as her knowledge of religious history, Diana Butler Bass examines the contours of the uniquely American relationship between church and state, Christian identity and patriotism, citizenship and congregational life. Broken We Kneel attempts to answer the central question that so many are struggling with in this age of terror: “To whom do Christians owe their deepest allegiance? God or country?” In writing both impassioned and historically informed, Bass, who lives outside of Washington, D.C., reflects on current events, personal experiences, and political questions that have sharpened the tensions between serious faith and national imperatives. This book incorporates the author's own rich experience of faith, her vocation as a writer and teacher, and her roles as wife, mother, and churchgoer into a larger conversation with Christian practice and contemporary political issues. Broken We Kneel is a call to remember that the core of Christian identity is not always compatible with national political policies.
