The religion clauses of the First Amendment, which seem simple and clear, have been and continue to be controversial in their application. Church-state issues have never been more complex, controversial, and divisive than they are today. In this helpful and instructive book, Ronald B. Flowers explains clearly and concisely the intricacies and implications of Supreme Court decisions in the volatile area of church-state relations. This is an ideal primer for those Americans who have listened to the debates about what the Supreme Court has and has not said about the relationship between church and state, and where the boundaries between the two have been eroded. It is also ideal for use in the classroom, specifically in undergraduate courses in religion and the court, introductions to U.S. constitutional law, constitutional law and politics, and the Supreme Court. The book is also a helpful tool for pastors, clarifying contemporary church-state issues that impact their churches and parishioners directly and indirectly.

From the Back Cover:

"Ron Flowers’ book, now revised and updated, has long been a classic. Flowers succeeds in synthesizing the sometimes arcane and often complex Supreme Court decisions interpreting the First Amendment's religion clauses. In a bumper-sticker world, Flowers avoids the temptation to over-simplify, but still presents the material in a way that students and the general public alike can understand. By the way, lawyers and scholars could benefit from a peek at it too!" --J. Brent Walker, Executive Director, Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, Washington, D.C.

"At a time when misinformation and misunderstanding about the Religion Clauses and the role of the Supreme Court abound, this second edition could not be more timely. Flowers has accomplished what might seem to be the impossible in today's divisive climate: a coherent, readable, and comprehensive account of the Supreme Court and the cases that frame the issues at the center of church-state debate today. This highly accessible resource is essential for anyone wishing to make sense of the confusion wrought by the ‘culture war.’" --Barbara A. McGraw, J.D., Ph.D., author of Rediscovering America's Sacred Ground: Public Religion and Pursuit of the Good in a Pluralistic America.

About the Author:
