The religious right, the social-justice left, and even traditionalists who wish to restore a past Christian order or create a new one have in common that they appear to the world as simply one group among many with a set of ideas about how to run the world. . . . Christian hope logically precedes Christian morality. . . . I would like to think we might be entering a time where the world is once again interested in Christianity’s metaphysical and mystical claims. If this is true in the modernized world — Europe, America, much of Asia — it’s probably because we have attained so much and are still so unhappy.
