In No Lasting City, Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt collects essays written over a twenty-five-year period that explore the relationship between theology, politics, and culture. Drawing on the Christian theological tradition and engaging thinkers from Augustine and Julian of Norwich to Max Weber and Michel de Certeau, Bauerschmidt sketches a picture of faithful engagement with politics and culture that has robustly Christological contours. The stories of Flannery O'Connor, the paintings of the Flemish Primitives, the curricula of medieval universities, and modern accounts of mystical experience all serve as points by which the path of God's pilgrim city is charted, as a way both of understanding our past and present and of orienting us toward our hoped-for homeland.
