Though the restoration of theology and philosophy to their proper place is essential and primary, it needs to be accompanied by something else that will embody and incarnate it in the life of each individual citizen. For Western civilization has lost more than those laws, creeds, and doctrines on which it was built; It has lost as well the sacred drama that gave flesh and bone to those ‘naked’ credal statements. We need the truth, but we also need to know how to live in and through and by that truth. ¶ What we need, in short, are stories.
