Very good. I think. The author appears extraordinarily intelligent (for a "Christian") though what she does not explain is how she derives conservative constitutionalism from biblical principles. Or, for that matter, how she identifies the principles underlying the US Constitution as "conservative" when in fact the founding documents were written at the cultural height of the Enlightenment and classical Liberalism (libertarianism). This dualism of westernized Christianity, I find puzzling. This dualism is not exactly Platonic, in the sense of two realities, one of phenomena and the other of circular ideas. This Christian dualism seems to contemplate a universe that integrates rationality and perception, while at the same time it cheats.
