"How Free Can Religion Be?" traces the evolution of the Supreme Court's treatment of the First Amendment Religion Guarantees, ranging from strict separation to neutrality to accommodation and nonendorsement to equality and nonpreferentialism. The text employs eight principle cases (Reynolds, Everson, Yoder, Epperson, Engel, Smith, Rosenberger, Locke v. Davey) as the foundation for a wide-ranging and Socratic discussion of the evolving meanings of religious freedom in America.
