By Peter J. Leithart

How may well a conservative Christian—an ordained minister with a beard, no less—be opposed to not just Christianity, yet theology, sacraments, and ethics besides? but that's the stance Peter Leithart takes during this provocative "theological bricolage."Seeking to reconsider evangelical notions of tradition, church, and nation, Leithart deals a sequence of brief essays, aphorisms, and parables that problem the present dichotomies that govern either Christian and non-Christian brooding about church and country, the secular and the religious.But his argument isn't really constrained to being only "against." Leithart unearths a far better imaginative and prescient of Christian society, outlined by way of the tales, symbols, rituals, and ideas of a renewed community—the urban of God.
