Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-10-- Referring to the varied views of colonial leaders and such national leaders as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and quoting important Supreme Court decisions, Sherrow shows how the First Amendment clause concerning religious liberty has been interpreted throughout American history. She discusses the complex legal issues surrounding public prayer, religious observances in schools and on public property, the teaching of creationism v. evolution in classrooms, public aid for religious institutions, and state restrictions on the free exercise of religion. While the author clearly believes that the separation of church and state is a logical extension of the First Amendment's language, she fairly presents the constitutional arguments on different sides of these issues, showing that the various interpretations all emanate from the same statement: ``Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.'' A center section of glossy black-and-white photographs and archival reproductions highlight points raised in the discussion. A concise, balanced, and informative treatment of an important issue. --Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego
