Religious Freedom in America. Source Book and Study Outline.
Harmon, Francis Stuart; And Others
To encourage a more meaningful celebration of the 1976 Bicentennial, the Interchurch Center is distributing nationally an exhibit of 18 posters, each 36" x 40", which portray various facets of the history of religious freedom in America. Reproductions of the posters together with an informative text make up the contents of this sourcebook. The program is designed for individuals, young and old, for study groups in churches, synagogues, schools, and for members of community organizations. The major objective is to help Americans recall the struggle of our forefathers for religious liberty and other basic freedoms in the American Bill of Rights, and to emphasize the constant necessity for alert action to maintain these freedoms against the encroachments of bureaucracy and the maneuverings of special interest. The sourcebook provides topics for debates, suggestions for current action, and helpful teaching suggestions for each poster. A study outline which accompanies the sourcebook discusses the focus and implication of each poster and cites primary source documents, books, pamphlets, and films which provide additional information on the poster's theme.
