This book explores the field of law and religion integrating cases and theory in an accessible and balanced way. The third edition is incredibly up-to-date, including Hobby Lobby, Town of Greece, Hosanna Tabor, Salazar v. Buono, and Arizona v. Winn, just to name a few. It addresses the continuing debate over the meaning of the Religion Clauses of the First Amendment and the evolution of church/state Law. The book includes article excerpts from some of the leading thinkers in the field. New to the third edition is a section addressing comparative law and religion; an important and timely addition to the book in our increasingly globalized field. The new edition also adds a section in Chapter One addressing the major tests used in Establishment Clause cases to lay the groundwork for students before they read the cases from which those tests are derived in later chapters.
