About this Item

230 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.8in. x 0.8in.Almost everyone today affirms the importance and merit of religious liberty. But religious liberty is being challenged by new questions (for example, use of the niqab or church adoption services for same-sex couples) and new forces (such as globalization and Islamism). Combined, these make the meaning of religious liberty in the twenty-first century uncertain. This collection of essays by ten of the worlds leading scholars on religious liberty takes aim at these issues. The book is arranged around five specific challenges to religious liberty today: the states responsibility to prevent coercion and intimidation of believers by others within the same faith community; the U. S. s basic moral responsibilities to promote religious liberty abroad; how to understand and apply the traditional right of conscientious objection in todays circumstances; the distinctive problems presented by globalization; and the viability today of an originalist interpretation of the First Amendment religion clauses.

About this title

Synopsis:

Almost everyone today affirms the importance and merit of religious liberty. But religious liberty is being challenged by new questions (for example, use of the niqab or church adoption services for same-sex couples) and new forces (such as globalization and Islamism). Combined, these make the meaning of religious liberty in the twenty-first century uncertain. This collection of essays by ten of the world's leading scholars on religious liberty takes aim at these issues. The book is arranged around five specific challenges to religious liberty today: the state's responsibility to prevent coercion and intimidation of believers by others within the same faith community; the U.S.'s basic moral responsibilities to promote religious liberty abroad; how to understand and apply the traditional right of conscientious objection in today's circumstances; the distinctive problems presented by globalization; and the viability today of an "originalist" interpretation of the First Amendment religion clauses.

Book Description:

Almost everyone today affirms and applauds "religious liberty." But different and sometimes irreconcilable conceptions of religious liberty have emerged in our world, often as responses to specific challenges (for example, globalization or Islamic immigration). In this book, scholars in law, theology, and political theory exchange views on five specific challenges to religious liberty in the twenty-first century.
