Contributions by churches to public discourse have become disconnected from the fabric of communal relationships in which Christians stand by virtue of the reconciling work of God in Jesus Christ.

We argue individualistically, legally, ideologically, but seldom as members of a body for whom relationships of basic trust with others are fundamental.

This book seeks a strategy for recovering these missing connections.

The heart of the argument is that churches need to recover the vocation of providing primary moral formation, of shaping people's moral identity, long before politicized policy arguments begin.
