The political dogma of toleration is little more than a tool of the modern state in its drive for power and wealth. In The Long Truce , A. J. Conyers shows that by banishing questions of ultimate meaning from public life, the modern version of toleration has debased our politics and undermined social cohesion. He argues provocatively for a return to the authentic toleration found in pre-Reformation Christianity.

The Long Truce is a book to read and reread. -Donald Livingston, Professor of Philosophy, Emory University
Conyers's book launches an engaging assault on one of the great sacred cows of modern political science and religious studies, the doctrine of toleration....this is a provocative work that ought to be read widely by undergraduates as well as graduate students in ethics and political science, not only for the genealogy of toleration that it offers but also for its constructive proposal. -- Religious Studies Review
