Religion & Constitutional Government in the United States

A Historical Overview With Sources

Book - 1986
Rate this:
An important contribution to the ongoing debate about the nature of religious liberty under a constitutional government. It offers a refreshingly balanced view of a controversial subject, from a clear, informed and rigorously non-polemical perspective. The author has divided his book into two parts, one interpretive and one documentary. He traces the historical relationship between religion and the U.S. government, followed by an introduction to the most significant documents of religious liberty, from Roger Williams response to Cotton Mather's attacks in 1644 to Lynch v. Donnelly, a 1984 Supreme Court ruling. Published in 1985 by Signal Books.
