Wills argues that Jesus subscribed to no political program--He was far more radical than that. It is only by dodges and evasions that people misrepresent what Jesus plainly had to say against power, the wealthy, and religion itself. Jesus came from the working class, and he spoke to and for that class. This book will challenge the assumptions of almost everyone who brings religion into politics--"Christian socialists" as well as biblical theocrats. But Wills is just as critical of those who would make Jesus a mere ethical teacher, ignoring or playing down his divinity--Jesus without the Resurrection is simply not the Jesus of the gospels. He argues that this does not make people embrace an otherworldliness that ignores the poor or the problems of our time.--From publisher description+-+2149855215227213ocn041606289book19960.25Wills, GarryA necessary evil : a history of American distrust of governmentHistoryThe author blames American's long-standing mistrust of government on a misreading of history, and a fundamental misunderstanding of the Founding Fathers+-+8439939315226713ocn022209699book19900.27Wills, GarryUnder God : religion and American politicsChurch historyExplores the relation of religion and politics in American life+-+519292621521315ocn049335842book20020.23Wills, GarryJames MadisonBiographyIn this examination of the life of a founding father, renowned historian Wills takes a fresh look at the life of James Madison, from his rise to prominence in the colonies through his role in the creation of the Articles of Confederation and the first Constitutional Congress+-+9054150535212910ocn040452959book19990.25Wills, GarrySaint AugustineBiographyFor centuries, Augustine's writings have moved and fascinated readers. With the fresh, keen eye of a writer whose own intellectual analysis has won him a Pulitzer Prize, Gary Wills examines this famed fourth-century bishop and seminal thinker whose grounding in classical philosophy informed his influential interpretation of the Christian doctrines of mind and body, wisdom and God. Saint Augustine explores both the great ruminator on the human condition and the everyday man who set pen to parchment. It challenges many misconceptions, among them those regarding his early sexual excesses.

Wills shows how leaders are shaped by the very circumstances in which they must shape others' actions. No one, after all, can be a leader without followers. Only the vital interplay of wills between leaders and followers can direct them both toward a goal." "In Certain Trumpets leadership is not a static pose but becomes an exhilarating partnership. Once again Garry Wills has transformed the lens through which we see our leaders, our society, and ourselves."--Jacket+-+K752016215182113ocn000093280book19700.31Wills, GarryNixon agonistes; the crisis of the self-made manBiography"Garry Wills' book ... describ[es] the essential feel of America and the American people moving into the 1970's."+-+3789863615173618ocn006737213book19800.31Wills, GarryExplaining America : the Federalist+-+348347596516317ocn035830182book19970.23Wills, GarryJohn Wayne's America : the politics of celebrityBiographyUnlike other actors and actresses with whom we associate political views, Wayne embodied a politics of large meanings - a politics of gender (masculine), ideology (patriotism), character (self-reliance), and personal responsibility. It was a politics of implicit dogmas that often transcended his own views and behavior. Although Wayne avoided serving in the military during World War II, he became, through his screen roles, the model of the American soldier. Likewise, although Wayne's popular image is that of a staunch anti-Communist, in reality he avoided taking a stand in the bitter ideological war that raged in Hollywood until after the issue had been decided+-+987353931515965ocn122309283book20070.23Wills, GarryHead and heart : American ChristianitiesChurch historyAn examination of Christianity's place in American life through history, from the Puritans to the administration of George W. Bush. The struggle within American Christianity, historian Wills argues, has been between the head and the heart: reason and emotion, Enlightenment and Evangelism. 18th century America saw a religious revolution--an Enlightenment culture emerged whose hallmarks were tolerance for other faiths and a belief that religion was best divorced from political institutions. Wills shows how radical a departure this was, and shows the steps by which church-state separation was enshrined in the Constitution. He shows a repeating pattern in our history: a cooling of popular religious fervor, followed by an explosion in evangelical activity--generally during times of social transformation and anxiety--and then a backlash. Wills's message is to be vigilant against the triumph of emotions over reason, but to know that the tension between them is necessary, inevitable, and unending.--From publisher description+-+819657940615875ocn009393965book19840.27Wills, GarryCincinnatus : George Washington and the Enlightenment15668ocn057692101book20050.25Wills, GarryHenry Adams and the making of AmericaHistoryBiographyIn this new view of the greatest historian of the nineteenth century, historian Wills showcases Henry Adams's little-known but seminal study of the early United States and elicits from it fresh insights on the paradoxes that roil America to this day. Adams drew on his own southern fixation, extensive foreign travel, political service in Lincoln's White House, and much more to invent the study of history as we know it. His chronicle established new standards for employing archival sources, firsthand reportage, eyewitness accounts, and other techniques that have become the essence of modern history. Adams's innovations went beyond the technical; he posited an ironic view of the legacy of Jefferson and Madison: they strove to shield the young country from "foreign entanglements," a standing army, a central bank, and a federal bureaucracy, among other hallmarks of "big government"--yet by the end of their tenures they had permanently entrenched all of these things in American society. This is the "American paradox" that defines us today.--From publisher description+-+6589863615155919ocn046992006book20010.24Wills, GarryVenice: lion city : the religion of empireHistoryChurch historyA historical perspective on Venice during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries is told through its relationship with art and its connection to religion, and details the labor, warfare, prayer, and discipline of the time+-+954623931515475ocn066393767book20060.21Wills, GarryWhat Paul meantAll through history, Christians have debated Paul's influence on the church. Though revered, Paul has also been a stone on which many stumble. Unlike the Gospel writers, who carefully shaped their narratives many decades after Jesus' life, Paul wrote in the heat of the moment, managing controversy, and sometimes contradicting himself, but at the same time offering the best reflection of those early times. This interpretation of Paul's writing examines his tremendous influence on the first explosion of Christian belief and chronicles the controversy surrounding Paul through the centuries.--From publisher description+-+081766896518321ocn050059695book20020.21Wills, GarryWhy I am a CatholicApologetic worksThe author recounts his own experiences as a Jesuit seminarian and a Catholic layman, traces the origins of the papacy and explains why this often fallible institution is not the same as the Church, and discusses the Apostle's Creed+-+34798636159737ocn544287360book20100.19Wills, GarryOutside looking in : adventures of an observerBiographyProlific journalist, historian, political columnist, and practicing Catholic Wills (now 76) writes an intensely opinionated re-evaluation of leaders and celebrities he has encountered, among them Studs Terkel, Beverly Sills, William Buckley, Richard Nixon, and more+-+99677552159354ocn004835267book19790.33Wills, GarryConfessions of a conservativeBiography305ocn756508851com20100.10Wills, GarryOutside looking in adventures of an observerBiographyBookish and retiring, Garry Wills has been an outsider in the academy, in journalism, even in his church. Yet these qualities have, paradoxically, prompted people to share intimate insights with him- perhaps because he is not a rival, a competitor, or a threat. Sometimes this made him the prey of con men like conspiratorialist Mark Lane or civil rights leader James Bevel. At other times it led to close friendship with such people as William F.
