A collection of quotes from diverse speakers, most of them believers, supporting separation of church and state. Some of these quotes, knowing the speakers, are suspicious, and might mean something different if placed back in context (for instance, Jim Wallis, who is known for thinking religion should control government, it should just be his religion). Because the editors organized it by topic rather than speaker, it is difficult to find the quotes you want again; also, some of the quotes are repeated in several topics. Otherwise, a good resource, as long as you mark or write down the quotes you want to refer back to later. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0913111376, Paperback)

This outstanding collection of memorable quotations on religious freedom - the most comprehensive ever assembled - covers many centuries of thought and a wide array of sources. On every page, the reader will discover a wealth of thoughtful, wise, and impassioned statements by all manner of men and women on a subject that has moved the consciences of generations from the distant past to the present. Included are early church fathers, Enlightenment philosophers, popes, anticlerical European statesmen, journalists, famous writers, judges, twenty-six presidents of the United States, and many others. A special feature of this compilation is the inclusion of quotes from major judicial decisions, from 1872 to the present, that bear on religious liberty. Above all, these quotations show that an enormously wide spectrum of men and women of diverse religious, social, and political views have championed the principle of religious freedom. Covering an extraordinary array of topics - from abortion rights, charitable choice, and creationism to pluralism, religious persecution, and school prayer - teachers, scholars, clergy, legislators, writers, public speakers, and anyone with an interest in these and other vital issues will benefit from the powerful words in this volume.
