Mott seeks to advance the role of biblical and theological values in the political lives of individual Christians and the public discourse of American Society. Mott argues that Americans want to make choices in terms of a general standard of right and wrong, but tend to lack an objective formulation of a Christian political theory they can supply the norms essential for such a foundation.
Readership: Scholars of religion, politics.

"'Any book by Mott is worth reading. He is academic in the best sense - one gets the impression that he has thought deeply about his subject, and he writes with that rare amalgam of authority and clarity. The book is ... deeply analytical of the world-views behind institutional life, and for that reason deserves a central place on reading lists in theological colleges and university departments.'
Roy McCloughry, Third Way, February 1994, Vol 17 No 1"
"'an excellent survey introduction to contemporary political approaches ... Mott's book will be valuable for all students of Christian political thought; it fills a serious gap.'
