"A useful little volume . . . The separation of church and state is important, this collection suggests, because that's how the country was conceived."-Jeff Sharlet, The Revealer

"This brief primer includes some of the most eloquent and cogent arguments by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Adams, George Washington, [and] Patrick Henry that will help a contemporary audience understand the original reasoning behind the separation of church and state."-Catholic Opinion

"No longer will the earnest citizen need to rely on second- and third-hand versions of how separation of church and state came about-or what it really means. The Separation of Church and State is an invaluable handbook of primary sources for the perplexed-and the concerned-in today's whirlpool of contrary opinions and strident voices."-Edwin S. Gaustad, author of Proclaim Liberty throughout All the Land: A History of Church and State in America
