Abstract

Whilst the rise of secularization in the West is evident and well documented, the importance of religion and its power as a motivating force for people of faith cannot be underestimated. Taking as an example a narrative commonly espoused by conservative Christians around the status of Israel, this paper identifies some key lessons for policymakers in engaging with faith communities and argues for the inclusion of theological reflection in the policy toolbox.
