Item Description...
Description Should prayer be allowed in public schools? Should biology be taught according to Darwin or to the book of Genesis? Why is polygamy against the law? These are just a few of the questions that touch our lives directly and emerge out of the separation of church and state. In this volume, one of the most distinguished scholars of American religious history traces the complicated relationship of church and state from the early colonial period, through the unique American experiment in religious liberty after the Revolution, to the ongoing debate over religious issues in our schools and communities. Edwin Gaustad relates entertaining and edifying accounts of headline-grabbing court trials involving polygamy, witchcraft, and church taxation. He quotes moving passages from the speeches and writings of American Presidents and Supreme Court justices to prove that, to paraphrase Michelangelo, "religious liberty is made up of a series of trifles, but religious liberty is no trifle." General Editors: Jon Butler and Harry S. Stout, both at Yale University Religion in American Life explores the evolution, character, and dynamics of religion in America from 1500 to the present day. Written by distinguished religious historians, these books weave together the varying stories that compose the religious fabric of the United States, from Puritanism to alternative religious practices. Primary source material coupled with handsome illustrations and lucid text make these books essential in any exploration of Americas diverse nature. Each book includes a chronology, suggestions for further reading, and index.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land  Sep 23, 2005
For daughter in college - saved $ over the college bookstore!
A great introduction  Sep 20, 2003
This is a great introduction to Church and State relations from the early colonial period to today, touching on the early theocracies of New England, the post-revolutionary period that introduced the concept of church/state separation, and the inconsistent Supreme Court decisions made to uphold this ideal.

Of particular interest is the rather brutal history of the first colonies as they executed people for being the wrong type of Christian, the founding of Maryland as a refuge for Catholics and the founding of Rhode Island as a provider of true religious freedom before the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ever drafted.

This is great as introductory reading, but is in no way comprehensive or authoritative. A good bibliography points the way to further, more in-depth study of the subject.
