I noticed that select chapters of J. Budziszewski’s The Revenge of Conscience were also published as journal articles for First Things. If you read those, you’ll know why the book is worth a place on your shelf (or your office desk, or your nightstand if you’re in seminary, live in student housing, and thus have no room for an office nor could you afford office furniture if you had the space). Here are the articles:

The Revenge of Conscience

The Illusion of Moral Neutrality

Politics of Virtues, Government of Knaves

The Problem with Communitarianism

The Problem with Liberalism

The Problem with Conservatism
