Whereas many think of public theology as it addresses public policy directly, this article seeks to chart the major non-political, indirect ways in which religions go public and thereby influence the common life and civil society. In addition to sketching out how religions generally shape their cultural and civilizational ethos, and thus personal character and social polity, it identifies how Christianity does so in distinctive directions and why it does so in comparison and contrast with other great traditions. Finally, it offers a set of suggestions as to why, for all its failures and blunders, a Christian public theology engenders a distinctive ethic which is good for humanity.
