Responding to the general confusion in the United States about the proper role of religion in politics, five distinguished scholars demonstrate in original essays how our nation's founders carefully and clearly defined the appropriate relationship between church and state, and how we can adapt our current political institutions to reflect the founders' wisdom. Also, includes a collection of the most important statements by the Founders that address religion's role in American political life.

Industry Reviews

A very useful selection of documents from the revolutionary and founding periods, and a powerful reminder of the radical differences between the views on the proper relationship between religion and the public order shared by those who created our political order, and the views ascendent today.--Richard E.
