It is not clear from the back of the book that this book is primarily a criticism of current US constitutional legal understanding of separation of church and state. It stays very specifically in the US context.

I did not find that the views of the author were clearly argued. Sometimes I had trouble following the arguments. At other times I felt that important counterarguments were ignored. The chapter on intelligent design was the best written, and I found it quite useful. In some other chapters I was even unsure what position the author was trying to support.

I also found the use of abreviations distracting. At the very least a list of them somewhere would have been helpful. ( )
