Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

Adlai E. Stevenson

“What do I believe? As an American I believe in generosity, in liberty, in the rights of man. These are social and political faiths that are part of me, as they are, I suppose, part of all of us. Such beliefs are easy to express. But part of me too is my relation to all life, my religion. And this is not so easy to talk about. Religious experience is highly intimate and, for me, ready words are not at hand.” — speech, Libertyville, Illinois, May 21, 1954
