"A fascinating and readable tale that should have broad appeal to lawyers, religious leaders, and scholars in both law and religion, as well as the general public."—Derek H. Davis, author of Religion and the Continental Congress

"As we move ever further in the direction of looking to 'faith-based institutions' to administer basic programs of the welfare state, the issues raised by Weitz-including whether church officials should be exempt from the same kind of liability that applies to secular professionals—will become ever more important."—Sanford Levinson, author of Constitutional Faith

"A riveting story about an important case."—Melvin I. Urofsky, author of Lethal Judgments: Assisted Suicide and American Law

Author Biography: Mark A. Weitz, a licensed attorney specializing in civil litigation, is an assistant professor of history at Auburn University-Montgomery. He is the author of A Higher Duty: Desertion among Georgia Troops during the American Civil War.
