God and Global Order: The Power of Religion in American Foreign Policy
August 15, 2010
Edited by Jonathan Chaplin with Robert Joustra, God and Global Order points out that U.S. foreign policy has failed to effectively respond to the growing significance of religious faith as a global concern and as a factor in international relations. With an eye on the turbulent century ahead, the book implores policymakers to recognize the power of faith to inform and enhance US foreign policy. Its contributors warn that ignoring the far-reaching role of both religious and secular beliefs and their influence upon international agendas could carry disastrous consequences, both for the United States and for the larger global order.
