FaithWalk Publishing, 2006 - Religion - 210 pages
Few areas of debate stir passions more than those involving the First Amendment. In God We Trust examines the effect Supreme Court decisions have had on organized religion since the First Amendment was adopted. Addresses controversies such as prayer in school and the use of religious symbols on public property. Particularly timely as new members take their places on the Supreme Court. In God We Trust is a book which should be on the reference shelf of every church leader and concerned Christian in the United States.
