Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Best of The Public Square, Book Three

Since its inception in 1990, the journal First Things has concluded each issue with Richard John Neuhaus's column "The Public Square," which has attracted the attention of America's most influential journalists, opinion makers, and intellectuals. All who read that column 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 between 2002 and 2005, these insightful pieces range from reflections on theology, philosophy, and politics to education, bioethics, vegetarianism, and architecture. 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 incisively as Neuhaus.

Richard John Neuhaus is editor in chief of the journal First Things and president of the Institute on Religion and Public Life, a research and education institute in New York City. He is the author of many books including Death on a Friday Afternoon, Appointment in Rome, and The Catholic Moment.
