"This country's most influential conservative Christian thinker." --New York Times Magazine"As a critic of liberalism, George is devastating. Generally attributing honest motives to his opponents, he nevertheless ruthlessly exposes [their] sophistries."--
National Review"There's not a dull or insignificant page in the whole volume. . . . I don't think we get better, or more consequential, commentary on the modern crisis." --Washington Times"Brilliant . . . Should be required reading." --Commentary"Puts George's highly burnished philosophical and constitutional learning on full display . . . George speaks for a sizable number of conscientious objectors to America's ruling liberal secularism." --New York Times Book Review

"George's claim to that title ['This country's most influential conservative Christian thinker'] is made abundantly clear in this collection of incisive, accessible essays, which seek to expose and confront the dogmas of liberal secularism while also directing and deepening modern conservatism. . . . Intended for a wide audience, the book deserves one." --Claremont Review of Books"Could not be more timely. A treasure trove of thought-provoking reflections by one of the best minds of our time." --Mary Ann Glendon, from the foreword"An important primer on the most pressing issues of our time . . . George's incomparable expertise will give even the most seasoned reader new insights." --Catholic World Report"Few thinkers speak as clearly as Robert P. George. . . . He is a model democratic citizen. . . . The book offers some of the strongest arguments at all levels of public discourse, from anthropology to the meaning of conscience and marriage." --Library of Law and Liberty

"One of the nation's most respected legal theorists . . . Even people who profoundly disagree with some of his conclusions [respect] his sheer brilliance, the analytic power of his arguments, the range of his knowledge . . . [and] a deeply principled conviction, a profound and enduring integrity." --Elena Kagan, Supreme Court justice"One of the most incisive legal and moral thinkers working today." --First Things"An indispensable man." --Touchstone
