Editorial Reviews

Review

Kennedy deftly unravels the competing ideologies that keep us talking past one another rather than engage in meaningful conversation.

-Randall Balmer, Professor of American Religious History

About the Author

Sheila Kennedy (J.D. Indiana University School of Law) is Associate Professor of Law and Public Policy at the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

More About the Author


I am currently a Professor of Law and Public Policy at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, where I am a member of IUPUI's Philanthropic Studies faculty, a Faculty Fellow with both the Center for Religion and American Culture and the Tobias Center for Leadership Excellence, and an adjunct professor of political science. (All of which sounds more impressive than it is.)

I hold a B.S. from Indiana University, and earned my J.D. from I.U. in 1975. My (checkered!) career includes the practice of real estate, administrative and business law in Indianapolis, my home town, a stint as Corporation Counsel for the City of Indianapolis (from 1977-1980) and, in 1980, a run for Congress as a Republican. I lost.

I was president of Kennedy Development Services, a real-estate development firm, from 1987-1992, when I became Executive Director of the Indiana ACLU. I joined the faculty of the School of Public and Environmental affairs in 1998.

I've written six books, all of which are available through Amazon: What's a Nice Republican Girl Like Me Doing at the ACLU?(Prometheus Books); Free Expression in America: A Documentary History (Greenwood Publishing); Pickin' Fights With Thunderstorms: A Love Story (Kern) ; Charitable Choice at Work: Faith-Based Jobs Programs in the States (with Wolfgang Bielefield)(Georgetown University Press), God and Country: America in Red and Blue (Baylor University Press); and Distrust, American Style: Diversity and the Crisis of Public Confidence (Prometheus Books). I also was co-editor of To Market, To Market: Reinventing Indianapolis, an analysis of Indianapolis' privatization experience under former Mayor Stephen Goldsmith (University Press of America).

In addition to these books and my articles in scholarly journals and law reviews, etc., for the past twelve years I have written a regular column for the Indianapolis Star and been a frequent contributor to other blogs and periodicals.

My husband Bob is an architect, and we have five children and four (gorgeous, brilliant, exceptional) grandchildren.

Format: Paperback
This book deserves to be on the bookshelves of everyone calling themselves politically educated. Kennedy examines the role of religion in the shaping of American politics and its effects upon the public discussion thereof with much more light than heat. It is not a polemic. It is the voice of reason in a land of shouters. It offers a solution for people of varied beliefs and backgrounds on how to get along with each other despite our differences. She offers specific methods of reaching a rational political consensus in our multicultural society. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very balanced and extremely informative. A fascinating look at America's so-called "culture wars." A must read for anyone, on either side, who wonders "what's wrong with you people?!"
