Written by a leading constitutional theorist, this provocative book examines a number of related, topical questions that linger behind today's headlines and issues--relevant, historic questions that seem to preoccupy the national psyche now more than ever. What role should religious arguments play in public debate about political choices? Or should they play such a role in the first place? Is it right to use religion as a basis for political decision-making? Concerned with such fundamentals as the constitutional premise that the government may not establish religion, this clearly- and thoroughly-written study will interest religious and political thinkers of all sorts, as well as students of current events and constitutional matters.
