This short piece provides the outline of a commentary on Professor Garet's work, "To Secure the Blessings." In it, I attempt to isolate what the distinctively "liberal" aspect of Professor Garet's reading is, what the distinctively "Christian" aspect is, and in so doing to reconstruct the tradition of liberal Christian constitutional thought which Professor Garet is recuperating by way of a close reading of the "blessings" paragraph in the Constitution's preamble.
