Broken We Kneel Reflections on Faith and Citizenship

Broken We Kneel Reflections on Faith and Citizenship

Author: Diana Butler Bass Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/10/2019

* More timely than ever in the current political climate * New introduction, foreword, and concluding chapter America's unique and often fractious relationship between church and state is, if anything, more relevant to who we are as a nation than when Diana Butler Bass' examination of it in Broken We Kneel was first published 16 years ago. This second edition contains a new foreword and introduction, as well as a new conclusion outlining her vision for the future. Born in the tumultuous aftermath of 9/11 and now a spiritual classic, the book draws on both her personal experience and her knowledge of religious history. Bass looks at Christian identity, patriotism, citizenship, and congregational life in an attempt to answer the central question that so many are struggling with today: To whom do Christians owe deepest allegiance? God or country? In writing both impassioned and historically informed, Bass reflects on current events, personal experiences, and political questions that have sharpened the tensions between serious faith and national imperatives. The book incorporates the author's own experience of faith, as writer, teacher, wife, mother, and churchgoer into a larger conversation about 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.
