What does it really mean to love your country?

Some Christians view loyalty to America as central to their faith and identity, while others are skeptical that their nation warrants such devotion or attachment. Richard Mouw encourages Christians to have a healthy sense of national peoplehood that promotes civic kinship and responsible citizenship. He navigates between Christian nationalism and cynicism about country to avoid the perils of both idolatry and disengagement.

Mouw grapples with challenging questions such as how to honor national holidays in church and the place of protests in forging a more perfect union. Placing love of country in the context of Christian love of neighbor, he sees patriotism as an expression of our heavenly citizenship and a call to help our country be a place where all people can thrive in peace.

Mouw's winsome and wise reflections are here to focus our patriotic affections toward the civic good of others within our churches and in our communities. This guide will help us travel together on a shared national journey toward liberty and justice for all.
