In this issue we want to suggest there are expressions of civil religion that deserve serious consideration because, as implausible as it might seem, civil religion is an irreplaceable moral source of civil society. And conversely, the biblical vision of our human calling to tend the earth and love our neighbours—a calling that is renewed by the gospel, not superseded—propels us into social concern for the societies in which we find ourselves. The church sends us into the world as agents of renewal. In fact, reconsidering civil religion is necessary precisely because civil religion is inevitable. It's not a question of whether we have a civil religion, but which.
