For over twenty years, Paul Weithman has explored John Rawls's work to ask how liberalism can secure the allegiance of those Rawls called 'citizens of faith'. Now Weithman has collected ten of his papers, one previously unpublished, in a volume that will interest political philosophers, political theorists and religious ethicists.
