Summary

Faith and Public Policy turns the spotlight on the role of faith in the public square and the spiritual consequences of public policy making. The work brings together fourteen of America's most respected writers on the intersection of faith and public policy to discuss the changing roles of government, church, education, and the family. Chapters by Michael Novak, James Q. Wilson, Alan Wolfe, John Dilulio, Eloise Anderson, Doug Kmiec, and Jean Bethke Elshtain investigate issues including inner city programs, the secularization of faith-based programs, the impact of tax policy on the family, and the issue of school vouchers. Contributions by Steve Forbes and William E. Simon illustrate the deep personal faith that informs and fuels the public leadership of America's leading thinkers and political figures.
