"This is a book for every American. Gaddy and Lynn have provided us with a volume that informs and challenges, as well as inspires and guides us, on issues of vital importance—our founding fathers' vision for religious liberty and their constitutional guarantee of separation of church and state."—Walter Cronkite
"If we forsake our freedom of religion, it's not the kind of thing we can ask nicely to have returned to us when we realize later how much we need it. First Freedom First
explains why we ought to avoid this mistake, but, crucially, also how
to avoid it—how respect for the First Amendment can unify even the most disparate elements in America's spiritual life."—Rachel Maddow, Air America Radio
