We Americans can thank the Hebrew Bible in English translation known as the King James Bible for helping to inspire American Protestants to develop what the Jewish scholar in American studies at Harvard University Sacvan Bercovitch writes about in his book The American Jeremiad, 2nd ed. (University of Wisconsin Press, 2012).
For a more recent discussion of the American jeremiad tradition in American culture, see the law-school professor Cathleen Kaveny's book Prophecy Without Contempt: Religious Discourse in the Public Square (Harvard University Press, 2016).
In any event, it strikes me that we Americans today are not in danger of having a shortage of American jeremiadists, or American jeremiads.
Nevertheless, I can readily understand why Kaveny advocates "Prophecy Without Contempt" for religionists to practice in "Religious Discourse in the Public Square." For when religionists express contempt for people who disagree with their views, those people might understandably stop pay attention to them.
But I wish that she had discuss secularists and their expressions of contempt for religionists and religious views. When secularists express contempt for religionists and religious faith, those people may be inclined to respond in kind.
