Philosophers and good government - a concern for Lutherans

Many Lutherans are thinking seriously about the role of government these days.  David Brooks is always a good read. I think that people who read this blog will find the discussion to be of interest.

In the same context, I would like to recommend a book which I have recently acquired.  The cite is:  Gordon S. Wood, Empire of Liberty, A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815, New York:  Oxford University Press, 2009.   This work is a part of The Oxford History of the United States.

My first read in this award-winning work is about religion in the early days of the Republic.  Interesting stuff.
