Timothy George has a nice piece in First Things about Rick Warren and his inaugural prayer, especially the fact that he prayed in the name of Jesus. At the close, he asks whether "Christians must hide their faith in the inner reserve of their private consciousness." They must not do so, says George. "For Christians, religious faith is more than what one does with one's solitude. It is a public declaration to all the world that Jesus Christ is Lord. The one who said 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life' was not crucified in private."
