But over time, Elshtain rediscovered Augustine--as well as DietrichBonhoeffer and John Paul II. "Who Are We? Reflections on Culture at theMillenium" is her meditation, drawing on the writings of Bohoeffer and the pope, on the problems of modern capitalist society. Elshtain's primaryconcern is the fragility of culture in a society in which "nothing isholy, sacred or off-limits," because "everything is for sale." Her vividdescription is often more memorable than her solutions for the socialproblems she outlines, but "Who Are We?" offers more than enough tocontemplate as it is--and clearly demonstrates that social criticism canbe founded in faith as easily as in reason. Maybe Augustine should get hisown class next time.
