“The psychological power of nationalism is lessened or at least checked by an ancient wisdom reminding us that a nation might gain a strong economy, everyday low prices, and all the homeland security in the world and still forfeit its soul.”

David Dark, The Possibility of America: How the Gospel Can Mend our God-blessed, God-Forsaken Land. Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2019, page 26.
