Guide Review - Why the Religious Right is Wrong About the Separation of Church and State
Is the separation of church and state really just a myth, something the founders never actually intended? Was the United States founded as a "Christian Nation," thus meaning that the current trend towards secularism represents an unacceptable break with our own history? According to the Religious Right, the answers to these questions are an unqualified "Yes." Because it was written in 1993, some of the information is a bit dated because of arguments and decisions which have occurred since them. Personally, I hope that he finds the time to write and expanded and updated version in the near future; but until that time, this book is still a valuable tool with a lot of important information to convey.
