Abstract:     
This early draft of a piece discussing the use of the Bible by State supreme courts does several things: first, it develops the independent variables to be used in a future study; it conducts a preliminary quantitative investigation to determine that controlled study is unnecessary; and it offers a qualitative study of judicial use of the Bible to examine what uses courts make.
