In this gripping, thought-provoking, and sometimes emotional from-the-trenches account of religious persecution in America, Harvard-trained lawyer David French brings a unique perspective to the culture wars. Fighting the "small battles in the small places, " French has seen first-hand the real-life consequences of an imbalanced legal system and a Christian political approach that sometimes works against the very freedoms it seeks to protect. Through the use of stories, case studies and personal accounts, French traces precisely how Christians fight battles in church, school, and the workplace to preserve the basic right to share the gospel and worship as they choose. A Season for Justice will challenge and move its readers and force them to think clearly and soberly about the real legal attack on Christianity in America.
