'... lucid and highly engaging ... complex yet accessible ... Other books have stressed the role of religion in Locke's political thought, but none has demonstrated the enduring philosophical relevance and integrity of Locke's religious views as convincingly as Waldron's. Its bold and intriguing insights urge us to rethink the place of religion within liberalism.' History of Political Thought
"Extremely well-written and detailed, Waldron's God, Locke and Equality provides a nuanced treatment that deftly handles the complexity of Locke's corpus and yet manages to provide a non-anachronistic and largely coherent version of Locke's treatment of basic equality." -Philosophy in Review
"This is a fascinating book[...]God, Locke, and Equality is a challenging and fascinating read." -First Things
"Mr. Waldron's Locke reverberates far beyond the boundaries of this book. Readers of the Scriblerian can learn from Mr. Waldron to think of Locke's trinity of religion, politics, and philosophy as central to his legacy and the compound of religion and politics as foundational to his philosophy." -Richard E. Brantley, University of Florida, The Scriblerian
