Excerpt

In a recent New York Times review of a memoir by contemporary American composer John Adams, the reviewer quoted a passage about the creative process in a section on collaboration in music: “Next to double murder-suicide, it might be the most painful thing two people can do together.” We can certainly identify with this statement.

Our partnership on this book project has been a long journey that at times did result in disagreements that seemed to be irresolvable. We were like two architects who had drawn up plans to build a multistory house: we found that not only did the plans not match, but also neither plan alone could do the job. Each room in the house, moreover, required special attention to detail. a comprehensive design would gradually emerge only when our plans were merged and we began to discern what we really wanted to build.

We are from different American Christian traditions—Mike Ryan from the Roman Catholic tradition and Les Switzer from the Protestant tradition. While we tried our best to describe the complexities of the Christian conservative response to the modern world, we recognize only too well that even our treatment of Protestant conservatives —especially denominations such as the Mormons, which are nurtured largely in the United States—is inadequate. Our treatment of the conservative Roman Catholic response is incomplete, and we have essentially ignored the Eastern Orthodox response. Our coverage of conservative themes in other faith traditions is also virtually absent: we have referenced only some Jewish responses to specific issues detailed in the book.
