I just learned that former secretary of state Madeleine Albright has written a new book that was released last week: The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs.

The publisher’s comments about the book ask: “Does America have a special mission, derived from God, to bring liberty and democracy to the world? How much influence does the Christian right have over U.S. foreign policy? And how should America deal with violent Islamist extremists?” Albright defies conventional wisdom and suggests not only that religion and politics are inseparable, but that their partnership, when properly harnessed, can be a force for justice and peace.

If I were self-discipline enough to read as much as I should, I would plan to read this book.
