Religious Freedom PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Religious Freedom free pdf Although religious freedom is highly prized, it is also very contentious and often misunderstood. This volume provides in a single source a grounding in the origin, development and contemporary controversies surrounding the free practice of religion. It discusses the history and evolution of the concept, explores major themes and important cases and illuminates defining moments, debates, issues and trends. It analyzes two case studies from the later half of the 20th century that set the stage for a discussion of just what the religious clauses of the First Amendment mean. It also examines contemporary religious issues and identifies trends likely to continue in the first decades of this century, including school vouchers, student-led prayers, religious displays and faith-based charities.
