America in God's World argues that human injustice in social-policy areas such as security, economy, and ecology can be traced to defective theology/ethics abroad in the land. Renewing biblical theology and ethics, and finding new ways to appropriate this wisdom into public policy, can bring renewal to our national life and help heal and reconcile our troubled world.
Endorsements & Reviews-
"Professor Kenneth L. Vaux brings a timely, hope-filled vision of an alternative future of our nation and world. In the wake of years of national moral vacuity, when greed masqueraded as sound economic theory, natural resources have been treated as inexhaustible, and an arrogance of power resulted in tragic international policies, we have in these pages a word of hope. Instead of continuing along the path of religious or national exceptionalism, the author lays out a restorative path for the future. It is a path that will require honest dialogue, extraordinary new commitments around our environment that include daily responsibilities, and a call to a new commonweal that crosses boundaries of religion, race and nationality."
