No Establishment of Religion

America's Original Contribution to Religious Liberty

Edited by T. Jeremy Gunn and John Witte, Jr.

  • Groundbreaking analysis of the shifting views of disestablishment of religion in America from early colonial days to the present
  • Corrects the ideological and potted histories of the First Amendment Establishment Clause now fashionable among courts and commentators
  • Deconstructs the myths that America was either a Christian nation bent on perpetuating Protestant ideals against all Catholic newcomers or a secular nation built with a high and impregnable wall of separation between church and state.
