The Power of Religion in American Foreign Policy

Tal Howard, associate professor of history and director of the Jerusalem & Athens Forum at Gordon College has contributed a chapter to the newly released God and Global Order: The Power of Religion in American Foreign Policy, edited by Jonathan Chaplin with Robert Joustra and published by Baylor University Press. The publisher writes, “With an eye on the turbulent century ahead, God and Global Order implores policy makers to recognize the power of faith to inform and enhance U.S. foreign policy. The contributors warn that ignoring the far-reaching role of faiths (those both religious and secular) and their influence upon international agendas could carry disastrous consequences—both for the U.S. and for the larger global order.”

The new book comes out of the USA with the World Project and is sponsored by the Center for Christian Studies at Gordon College.
