Heinrich Meiers theologisch-politisches Traktat ist die erste Schrift zu Strauss, die das challenge, von dem Strauss sagte, es sei das Thema seiner Untersuchungen gewesen, zu ihrem Thema macht. Neben dem programmatischen Vortrag "Das theologisch-politische Problem", der auf dem internationalen Leo Strauss Symposium in München im Juni 2002 große Beachtung fand, enthält sie den Kommentar "Zur Genealogie des Offenbarungsglaubens", der eine kühne genealogische Skizze von Strauss aus dem Nachlass zugänglich macht und argumentativ entfaltet, sowie den textual content "Der Tod als Gott. Eine Anmerkung zu Martin Heidegger", der den Blick auf einen Philosophen richtet, auf dessen Denken das theologisch-politische challenge seinen langen Schatten geworfen hat, ohne dass es bei ihm jemals ein Thema von Gewicht war.
