Format: Paperback
A masterful treatment of a difficult subject. Refreshing in it's even-handedness, staying clear of the strident presentation too often represented in this subject area. Based on substantial quotations from original text, the author presents the facts of the federal and state legal positions on church and religion. Further, he presents the influence of religious principles on the development of the government institutions within the context of that culture and society. Very well written. And very readable - not too scholarly.

This book should be a requirement of every high school history curriculum as well as for everyone in public office. Our current understanding of "the separation of church and state" is not the understanding and intent of the founders of our country. This is a very eye-opening, easy to understand book that includes numerous copies of original documents that will fascinate you. You will not be disappointed.

Without a familiarity with the subject matter of this volume the understanding of American founding and development is crippled.

A good source of how different denominations began in the colonies and the difficulty with established religions.
