Witnessing Their Faith: Religious Influence on Supreme Court Justices and Their Opinionsby Jay Alan Sekulow
Lawyer and evangelical Sekulow explores how the US Supreme Court has interpreted and applied the two clauses of the First Amendment to the Constitution concerning religion during the 19th and 20th centuries. Among the cases he cites are the Bible in public schools controversy and the Philadelphia riots, the Mormon controversy, the rise of the church-state separation movement, and school prayer.
