Church, State and American Culture. Church, State and the First Amendment: A North Carolina Dialogue.
Gunn, Giles, Ed.
The anthology focuses on some of the different ways people in the United States and others have interpreted the relation between First Amendment provisions and religious freedom. The book is organized into six chapters, each suggestive of a different framework of ideas or terms: (1) political, (2) legal, (3) comparative, (4) theological, (5) cultural and historical, and (6) ideological. The different readings reflect perspectives from which people have addressed problems involving the relationship between religion in the United States and the U.S. government. Each chapter contains questions for discussions. (KWL)
