Liberalism -- Religious aspects -- Christianity. Summary "In this book, Bruce K. Ward reexamines four of the moral imperatives or "liberal virtues" associated with the Enlightenment - equality, authenticity, tolerance, and compassion - and argues that they are, in fact, based on Christian moral ideals. In the current debate surrounding post-Enlightenment secular humanism, Ward contends that we should seek not to reject or reclaim the Enlightenment, but to redeem it.
The result is a lively and provocative forum for reconsidering and creatively receiving what is most valuable in Enlightenment thought. Includes bibliographical references and index.

First, the values which are known as liberal, or enlightenment, find their more profound source in Christianity. Secondly, Christians can and have either totally reject the enlightenment, totally surrender to it, or best in Ward's eyes, redeem, rescue from the trash, the good which did not ultimately derive from Spinoza, Rousseau or Locke, but from Christ.
In fact, a quick scan of this fine book's index show references to Dostoevsky and Rousseau in a dead heat for numerical supremacy, understandable since Ward has previously published on D. Ward devotes chapters to "equality," "authenticity," "tolerance" and "compassion" as virtues allegedly derived from the enlightenment, but which are actually secularized, even watered down versions of Christian virtues. I was surprised that "freedom" was not treated individually, but Ward explained that freedom or liberty is woven into each of the other four as a necessary pre-condition.
One of the many things i enjoyed about this book was the footnotes to many other books which sound as if they will also be helpful to me, and to others, to comprehend the USA, which has roots in both Christianity and the enlightenment.
