Defending Constantine

Leithart’s book seems quite intriguing, and rightly so. If the thesis that a new Constantinianism is needed today, then learning from the real Constantine is a cosmic necessity. I confess I have not followed all the scholarship on Constantine, yet as a theocrat I read with great interest. It is my belief that the only solution to the world is a comprehensive faith; a faith that touches everything with a Trinitarian brush and paint. The world needs to be colored with the colors of the Bible. The only way this can happen is with Christendom; nothing more or less.

Thus far, having only read the preface and acknowledgements, I am pleased to see that Peter intends to establish a theology that is a form of social science (11) and not merely an informational/data centered delivery. Readers who find delight in discussing the political implications of what Douglas Wilson called “Christendom 2.0” will certainly gain from this tome.

  1. I think it’s entertaining that you mention Defending Constantine right under your notice of City of Man. Not sure if that was intentional but it looks like the beginning of a Books & Culture review to me!

    Adrianna, I may entertain you even more when I offer my thoughts on Augustine’s City of God. :)
