Abstract

Reading a book with which one agrees on the basic assumptions and goals can be a reaffirming and educational experience. However, reading a book with which one disagrees about some of its basic assumptions and goals can be a stimulating and even enlightening experience, particularly if the book presents a logical argument, a compelling and laudable vision, and an openness to opposing views. For this reviewer, Professor Bruce Ledewitz has written just such a book.

Keywords: church and state
