About this book

This book demonstrates that the United States, whether we like it or not, is a theolegal nation - a democracy that simultaneously guarantees citizens the right to free expression of belief while preventing the establishment of a state religion.

Reviews

"This book is a provocative and pioneering effort to rethink the complex relation of religion and the state in the American past and present. Don't miss it!" - Cornel West, Princeton University

"Whose God Rules? offers an illuminating new frame to revitalize the stale debate over church-state separation. Bringing a thoughtful and diverse group of experts to the table, Walker and Greenlee present a feast for the intellect that challenges us all to become better citizens." - Forrest Church, author of So Help Me God: the Founding Fathers and The First Great Battle over Church and State

"This erudite book offers a rare and unusual combination; it includes a broad range of topics treated in depth by a diverse group of contributors who write about a distinctive and controversial concept, namely theolegal democracy. It is sure to provoke an interesting and renewed debate about the relationship of religion and politics." - Leslie Griffin, University of Houston Law Center and author of Law and Religion: Cases and Materials
