About-

What happens when Christians reconsider political engagement? Among leading Christian thinkers, political engagement is either unavoidably necessary or theologically impossible. Is this a false dilemma? Between Faith and Power examines how Christian groups are grappling with the demands of a pluralistic public square while remaining faithful to their tradition. Using the lenses of social science research and theological analysis, the book examines the successes and failures of these groups as they engage the public square. What emerges are models of Dynamic Engagement that Christian leaders are using to consistently pursue religious liberty across faiths while contributing to the common good.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“For anyone wishing to understand Protestant engagement on issues such as religious freedom and politics, this book is a must-read. It also provides excellent concepts that are useful beyond the Protestant world. I highly recommend it.”

—Brian Grim, President, Religious Freedom and Business Foundation



“Ratliff’s capacious argument cuts through the noise of many religious freedom arguments to demonstrate from actual cases how religious groups can and should dynamically engage others across ideological lines.”

—Michael Kessler, Associate Professor of the Practice of Government, Georgetown University, and Managing Director, Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs
