Chapter 9: Two Differing Worldviews and Their Implications for Liberty, Equality, and Justice
Jim Davids, Erik Gustafson, and Sherena Arrington have written an important book about how individual worldviews shape not only Supreme Court justices, but all of us. To their credit, these evangelical Protestants with an ‘impulse toward orthodoxy’ reached out to me, a mainline pastor with an ‘impulse toward progressivism’ to offer an endorsement. As I read their thoughtful analysis of how the jurisprudence of Rehnquist and Blackmun captures the essential divides in the Americans culture wars, I was also reminded that until we do the hard work of understanding and respecting one another, we are lost.
