This chapter concludes that Pauli Murray's critical attentions to identity, history, and her articulation of a democratic eschatology provide readers with resources for contemporary discussions of Christianity and American democracy. It considers Murray's project in conversation with the work of Jean Bethke Elshtain and Cornel West, two contemporary theorists who aim to inform democratic theory with Christian theological imagination and commitments.

Keywords:   Pauli Murray, Christianity, American democracy, of Jean Bethke Elshtain, Cornel West, democratic theory
