What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Goldberg's expertise in the legal system, science, and contemporary social issues allows him to frame public debates in their proper perspectives. His presentations of the relations between law and religion offer insights that tend to be ignored and he convincingly shows that religious values have a central place in today's controversies."

-Journal of Church and State,

"Provides the reader with a lucid and accessible entre to the contentious issues surrounding the role of religion in American public life."

-Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies,

"A readable book that will be a valuable addition to university libraries and useful reading in courses on science and values."

-Religious Studies Review,

"Insightful and penetrating."


"This interesting book makes a strong demand on religiously inclined readers . . . warning not to justify things of the spirit by signs material. . . . Goldberg's warning is one to take seriously."

-The Christian Science Monitor
