The Stillborn God

I recently finished Mark Lilla’s intellectual history of the separation of politics and political theology in Christendom, The Stillborn God: Religion, Politics and the Modern West. Interesting book, very illuminating in some respects. Still, I find myself ambivalent about it, overall.

I thought I might write a short review to express why, but it seems Zachary Karabell, curiously enough, has written a review which I largely see eye to eye with. So read it, if you’re interested…
