Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

What role should religion play in American public life? Until recent times, American Jewry has almost unanimously supported the "broad interpretation" of the First Amendment's establishment clause by advocating a rigid separation or "wall" between religion and the state. A major example of this thinking would be the "naked public square" (i.e., no creches or Hanukah menorahs on public display anywhere). Some Jewish groups are now rethinking this absolutist concept because of their concern with the rapidly growing secularization and "paganism" of contemporary American society. This provocative collection of essays, edited by rabbi-historian Dalin, presents the views, pro and con, of 38 prominent American Jewish intellectuals on this explosive issue. Surprisingly, several of these contributors present cogent arguments favoring a less rigid interpretation of the establishment clause. This excellent anthology is recommended for large collections.
