12 editions published between 1989 and 2001 in English and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an original and challenging meditation in religious philosophy. It is not history or biblical exegesis.

Rather, the book offers an extended reflection upon the political implications of Christian principles. - Jacket flap

Tolerance and community by Glenn E Tinder( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the nation's foremost thinkers, Tinder believes that tolerance is crucial to the achievement of the right kind of community. He asks how we can really be serious about truth and about our relations with one another while still making room in our world for people who disagree with us. Communication grounded in the principles of veracity and responsibility plays a crucial role in Tinder's community. Principled openness to others, even amid the risks inherent in freedom of speech, allows tolerance to be understood, not as detachment from others, but as attentiveness to them. Tinder also highlights the indispensability of political prudence in making the practical decisions about tolerance faced by both citizens and government. In the course of his argument, he addresses the strengths and weaknesses of traditional liberalism on the subject of tolerance, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of conservatism and radicalism

Liberty : rethinking an imperiled ideal by Glenn E Tinder( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tinder argues for "negative liberty"--The liberty that wants primarily to be left alone, with the authorities interfering as little as possible in the lives of people -- and against "positive liberty"--a liberty that seeks to guide people into a "fulfilling" life. The substance of the book lies at the intersection of several major themes -- communication, human fallenness, the necessity of liberty, standing alone, and eschatology -- each considered in light of learning what liberty truly is and how it will affect the world at large
