God, Locke, and Liberty: the struggle for religious freedom in the West

Students may use this piece to examine and compare Enlightenment liberty with Christian liberty. In “Rethinking Lockean Liberty,” reviewer Daryl Charles reviews God, Locke, and Liberty by Joseph Loconte (Lexington, 2014): The central burden of Loconte’s treatise is that despite renewed scholarly attention to Locke, the religious character of A Letter Concerning Toleration has been slighted. Due to “primarily political interpretations” that render him “the father of modern empiricism,” there has been insufficient attention to Locke’s conspicuously Christian ideals and objectives.
