About the Author:

B01

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—Similar to books in the "Opposing Viewpoints" series, this work presents 16 articles for and against a controversial topic, but it also boasts numerous informative (and colorful) photos, graphs, and charts. It also includes fact boxes, comprehension questions at the beginning and end of each article, and annotated lists of books, Web sites, and pertinent organizations. The articles, which date from 2001 to 2007 and vary considerably in appeal and difficulty, address the topic generally and then tackle the issues of intelligent design and prayer. All can be found online (though Merino lists a Web site for only one of them); the book's main advantage is its preselection and additional resources. The book assumes a basic knowledge of Christianity. It uses terms such as nonsectarian, nondenominational, evangelism, secularism, Babel, animus, exegetes, and so on, and refers to the Lord's Prayer, King James Version, Good Friday, etc., with no explanation. Only a few key terms are defined in a concluding facts section. Alan Marzilli's Religion in Public Schools (Chelsea House, 2004) covers prayer, religious clubs, and evolution; rather than presenting articles, it summarizes each topic, with an emphasis on legal cases and decisions. Tom Head's bare-bones Religion and Education (Gale, 2005) collects 13 articles on vouchers, prayer, teaching about religion, creationism, the Pledge of Allegiance, and headscarf bans; it lacks study questions and illustrations.—Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
