Dialectical Democracy through Christian Thought offers an accessible yet theologically groundbreaking intervention into the battle over the role of government in the market. Digging beneath the surface of political discourse - liberal and conservative - this book shows that the fight over policy involves a fundamental disagreement about who we are as human beings: independent individuals, or essentially social creatures. This book seeks to move beyond the present impasse by advocating an alternative: dialectical democracy. Drawn from the view of the human person that emerges from the Christian scriptures, dialectical democracy would foster a creative tension between individuality and social relations.
