Book Review: The Moral Tradition of American Constitutionalism: A Theological Interpretation
James Ming Chen
Michigan State University - College of Law
Constitutional Commentary, Vol. 11 (1994-1995)
Just as the Gospel reminds Christians that “the last shall be first,” the observation that “less is more” surely does not damn H. Jefferson Powell's constitutional scholarship with faint praise. In “The Moral Tradition of American Constitutionalism: A Theological Interpretation,” Powell launches an unapologetically Christian attack on America's long-standing civic faith in constitutional law. Powell's core message -- that there is no such thing as a Christian approach to constitutionalism -- heralds a radical and powerful new model for understanding the relationship between personal Christianity and public law.
