Reviews - What do customers think about In God We Trust: How the Supreme Court's First Amendment Decisions Affect Organized Religion?
For Anyone Interested in First Amendment History and Decisions Nov 19, 2007
A logical, organized, and dispassionate look at a wide variety of First Amendment cases that have reached the Supreme Court. Camp lays out clear explanations of what was being contested in each case and provides objective background and analysis. Her brief questions at the end of each chapter are good for thoughtful review by the individual reader, as well as for class or small group discussions. This would be a good reference for many church libraries.
Written by a lawyer, easy to read for the rest of us Oct 10, 2006
What makes this book invaluable is that it's easily accessable to all readers who want to understand what is normally written in "lawyer speak". It's not dumbed down--not in the least--but Ms. Page Camp has a gift for giving wonderful examples void of confusion. Her writing is fresh and interesting, which is often hard to find in books written by lawyers, LOL. She knows her audience and understands concerns without resorting to bias.
A definite must-read.
An Essential Resource Sep 5, 2006
I found this book to be both informative and without bias, something which is hard to find in today's world where there are so few sources for information which is fair and balanced. Anyone interested in First Amendment issues as they relate to the separation of church and state or in the religious rights we as Americans enjoy will benefit from this book. It is filled with case studies from a wide range of First Amendment issues we face today including prayer in school and religious displays on public properties. This book has a wealth of information in one easy to use volume, perfect for those of us who do not have the time or resources to purchase a personal law library. It is about time there was a book like this. Brilliant!
