In God We Trust: How the Supreme Court's First Amendment Decisions Affect Organized Religion
FaithWalk Publishing, 2006 - 210 páginas
Throughout America's history, the First Amendment has been a lightning rod for the debate over religious freedom and its limitations within a free society. Intense legal battles have erupted over prayer in school, religious symbols on public property, and the teaching of evolution. And these battles continue as new judges with differing opinions are appointed to the Supreme Court and as society struggles with whether to be more or less tolerant of organized religion. In this unbiased examination of the effect of court decisions on organized religion in America. Kathryn Page Camp "transforms the daunting complexity of free exercise jurisprudence into a clear, simple, and enjoyable primer on when and how the American legal system resolves religious disputes," says attorney and author John Mauck, writing in the Foreword. "The narrative is enlivened by insightful and sometimes amusing anecdotes concerning Jefferson, Madison, and other giants (and pygmies) whose personalities and concerns still vitally affect our lives today." In God We Trust is an essential resource for pastors, pre-law students, educators, reporters, lawyers, judges, and others who care about issues surrounding the separation of church and state.
