Ira Lupu and Robert Tuttle’s Secular Government, Religious People is one of the very best overviews of the American law of religious liberty in print. Their fundamental claim is that religious liberty in America is founded on a jurisdictional limit upon government competence. A keystone of the book’s argument is its response to the increasingly salient question, “what makes religion special?.” That response has important implications for religious accommodation. This brief review focuses on those issues.
