Since its inception in 1990, the journal First Things has concluded each issue with Richard John Neuhaus's "The Public Square." His column has attracted the attention of America's most influential journalists, opinion-makers, and intellectuals. All who read it appreciate its serious discussions of religious and social topics, its lively prose, and its occasional dash of wicked humor.This volume presents a sampling of the best of "The Public Square." Culled from columns written from 1996 to 2000, these thirty-two insightful pieces range from reflections on theology, philosophy, and politics to education, bioethics, law, and family life. Each one demonstrates Neuhaus's authorial flair and keen intellect. As Neuhaus argues, "public life is mainly about culture, and at the heart of culture is morality, and at the heart of morality is religion." Few thinkers today can illumine this relationship as directly as Neuhaus. As a gathering of some of Neuhaus's finest recent columns, this volume is indispensable for those familiar with his work and a great introduction for those who should be.ContentsIntroductionThe Unhappy Fate of Optional OrthodoxyThe Extremity of the MainstreamIslam CorneredRussia: Wilderness Years AheadTurning the Enemy into an Enemy of the EnemyA Pope of the First Millennium at the Threshold of the ThirdThe First Five YearsPortnoy's SnitHe Who Steals My Words...Counting by RaceAgainst Christian PoliticsPeddlers of an Unreal WorldFarewell to the OverclassPresident Clinton and the White RaceDeep, Critical Reflection on the Education FrontThe Best and the BrightestA More Real WorldScience, Greed, and Justice: An Unbeatable CombinationWhat Then Is To Be Done?Sin and Risk AversionAbraham Joshua Heschel3 Bill Clinton and the American CharacterWhy "Hate Crimes" Are WrongEncountered by the TruthThe Impertinence of Protesting AggressionMinding the MindScience, Matter, Spirit, and Three-Card MonteTo Be a "Normal" SocietyAmerican History and Theological NerveForget the Bilderbergers1984 and NowA World of Our Own Making
