Law and Religion, a Reader: Cases, Concepts, and Theory
This book explores the field of law and religion integrating cases, concepts, and theory in an accessible and balanced way. The second edition is incredibly up-to-date, including recent cases involving intelligent design theory, school vouchers, religious symbolism in the public square (including Ten Commandments displays), municipal prayer, RLUIPA, and standing. It addresses the continuing debate over the meaning of the Religion Clauses of the First Amendment and the evolution of church v. state Law. The book includes article excerpts from some of the leading thinkers in the field. New to the second edition is a chapter dealing with properrty disputes and schisms involving religious institutions, liability of religious institutions for clergy abuse, and standing in cases under the religion clauses. The new edition also adds a section on Hindu law to the popular chapter exploring the place of law within six (now seven) major religious traditions from around the world.
