From the Publisher“A useful little volume . . . The separation of church and state is important, this collection suggests, because that’s how the country was conceived.”—Jeff Sharlet, The Revealer
“This brief primer includes some of the most eloquent and cogent arguments by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Adams, George Washington, [and] Patrick Henry that will help a contemporary audience understand the original reasoning behind the separation of church and state.”—Catholic Opinion
“No longer will the earnest citizen need to rely on second- and third-hand versions of how separation of church and state came about—or what it really means. The Separation of Church and State is an invaluable handbook of primary sources for the perplexed—and the concerned—in today’s whirlpool of contrary opinions and strident voices.”—Edwin S. Gaustad, author of Proclaim Liberty throughout All the Land: A History of Church and State in America
