God, Locke, and Liberty
Full Product Description
Loconte offers a fresh contextual and theologically informed reading of Locke's Letter, revealing strong continuity with the Christian humanist authors whom Locke admired-even as he pushed their arguments for toleration in much more radical directions. God, Locke, and Liberty challenges the popular notion that decisive arguments for religious freedom appeared only after the decline of Christian influence in early modern Europe. "If the Gospel and the apostle may be credited," Locke wrote accusingly, "no man can be a Christian without charity, and without that faith which works, not by force, but by love." Loconte's study reveals how Locke's vision of a tolerant and pluralistic society drew great strength from a radical reinterpretation of the life and teachings of Jesus. Like no thinker before him, Locke forged an alliance between liberal political theory and a gospel of divine mercy. God, Locke, and Liberty suggests that a clearer understanding of Locke's political theology offers the best hope for calming the storms of religious fanaticism that once again threaten the peace and security of the West.
