The latest book in the Faith in Reason series provides a theological defence of a strand of political liberalism; a strand informed by the theological conviction that the human person is a creature incapable of its own perfection, although nonetheless called to and made for this perfection. Insole puts a question mark against easy caricatures of "liberalism", which tend to describe it as individualistic, hubristic and relativist. By attending to figures such as Edmund Burke, Lord Acton and John Rawls, Insole shows that a passion to protect the individual within liberal institutions arises not from an illusory sense of self-sufficiency, but from an insight into our fallen condition, characterised by frailty, vulnerability, yet also from a hope and intimation of redemption and an eternal divine order. Taking up the emphasis Rawls places on the wars of religion in 16th and 17th century Europe as the historical impetus for an emerging political liberalism, Insole pays careful attention to the work of Richard Hooker. After attending to this theologico-political seed-bed of liberalism, Insole investigates how the notions of 'liberty' employed in England, America and France have some quite distinct theological lineages, and separates the political liberalism he defends from these over-zealous appropriations that emanate, for instance, from American Presidents. On the basis of his theological defence, he also critiques the Radically Orthodox attempt to leap beyond political liberalism to a more enchanted space, showing the Radical Orthodoxy project to be politically nai(-15441)ve, utopian and dangerous, in ways well understood by the tradition of political liberalism defended.

Excellent book - a very insightful treatment of the material, and a perspective from which we hear far too little.

Theologians often criticise political liberalism for various failings. Insole shows how the liberal tradition is far more complex than is usually acknowledged and that the strand stemming from Burke survives all the usual criticisms made by theologians against liberalism (such as an autonomous subject, a refusal of dependency, a denial of the limitations of human knowledge of power). What emerges is a very attractive form of liberalism that can be read as taking account of human imperfection as expressed in the Christian doctrine of the fall. The combination of historical and philosophical scholarship is exemplary. It has a masterly critique of radical orthodox communitarianism (without being unfair or polemical as such debates sometimes are). There are some interesting reflections on differences between the American and English contexts and traditions too. The conclusion is self-reflexive about whether the kind of liberalism advocated can be seen as a form of self-justification or enabling the author to avoid challenges to his way of life. I found this admirable.

In combination with Mark Townsend's The Gospel of Falling Down: The Beauty Of Failure In An Age Of Success, Insole's book deserves reading by anyone interested in the way Christianity can be a force for good in the world.
