Show Notes

John Wilsey is a Georgia native whose research interests lie in the historical interaction between nationalism and Christian theology. He is also interested in the history of ideas in the Christian west, especially with regard to the church’s engagement with politics, Enlightenment thought, religious freedom, and diplomacy.

Wilsey served as the 2017-18 William E. Simon Visiting Fellow in Religion and Public Life with the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, where he conducted research for a religious biography of John Foster Dulles, secretary of state in the Eisenhower Administration. The Dulles work will appear soon alongside other works in the Library of Religious Biography series published by Eerdmans. He is the author of One Nation Under God: An Evangelical Critique of Christian America (Pickwick, 2011), American Exceptionalism and Civil Religion: Reassessing the History of an Idea (IVP Academic, 2015), and editor of an abridged edition of Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic work, Democracy in America (1835-40) titled Democracy in America: A New Abridgment for Students (Lexham, 2016).
