What if political conservatism, properly understood (as it almost never is) not as the propagation of ideology, but as ideology’s negation, naturally avoids James Davison Hunter’s critique of over-politicized Christianity, and, furthermore, absorbs some of Hunter’s best insights?

This was, if I’m not mistaken, one of the percipient points that Matthew Lee Anderson made in response to Professor Hunter at a recent event, in what was – incidentally – one of the most satisfying responses to the book I’ve yet encountered.
