If we are to recover the Christian narrative, we must first disabuse ourselves of civil religion. . . . We live in the narrative of God and within a culture that lives by the narrative of democracy.  The two narratives are separate, yet we live in them both simultaneously.  However, as Christians, our ultimate commitment is to God’s narrative: “Jesus is Lord.” There is no other worthy allegiance.
