Religion: Foundation for the Free Society
JULY 30, 2009
In this book, Opitz explores the way in which religious belief is not only compatible with the free society, but is an essential part of its history and operation. The book starts with the “religious roots” of liberty, from the Bible through to the contemporary role of churches. The other two sections examine issues of individual freedom through a religious lens and then the relationship between religion and economic freedom. The section on economic freedom includes several chapters on religion and socialism. This volume is an excellent introduction to the relationship between religion and human freedom.
