In this book, James K.A. Smith examines politics through the lens of liturgy. He offers a well-rounded public theology as an alternative to contemporary debates about politics. Smith explores the religious nature of politics and the political nature of Christian worship, sketching how the worship of the church propels us to be invested in forging the common good.

This book creatively merges theological and philosophical reflection with illustrations from film, novels and music, and includes helpful exposition and contemporary commentary on key figures in political theology.

"Negotiating his way through the mass of confusions known as political theology, Smith has written a superb book that develops a constructive and nuanced position in the Reformed tradition... This is a book that should be read widely by anyone interested in addressing the fundamental questions of church and politics."
- Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School
