Faith, Freedom and Modernity: Christianity and Liberalism in the Nineteenth Century
Beginning with a careful study of 19th century liberalism, author Jan Klos shows how liberalism - understood as political freedom, individualism, and progress - is unable to maintain itself without the underpinning of a vigorous cultural commitment to a Christian understanding of man and the morality which flows from it. But if a healthy politics needs the Church, the Church in some respects stands just as much in need of politics. To these twin tasks of assimilation and preservation this work is devoted.
