"Thomas M. Alexander's deft introduction elegantly unfolds John Dewey's A Common Faith for a new generation of readers seeking novel answers for the ancient questions of ultimate concern"-Jim Garrison, Virginia Tech -- Jim Garrison "Professor Thomas Alexander's introduction to A Common Faith is an important reorientation of this book. Alexander makes a clear and convincing case for its centrality in Dewey's thought."-William T. Myers, Birmingham-Southern College -- William T. Myers "Alexander's careful and imaginative introduction shows how Dewey both understood and respected human religious experience. Dewey's insistence that core notions (e.g. religion, God) be recast reflects the still-urgent need of diverse and democratic citizenries to preserve religious freedom, aesthetic experience, and social justice."-David L. Hildebrand, University of Colorado, Denver -- David L. Hildebrand
