An insightful and dramatic account of religious conflicts that keep America dividedfrom the acclaimed author of The Courage of Their Convictions As the United States has become increasingly conservative, both politically and socially, in recent years, the fight between the religious right and those advocating for the separation of church and state has only intensified. As he did in The Courage of Their Convictions, award-winning author and legal expert Peter Irons combines an approachable, journalistic narrative style with intimate first-person accounts from both sides of the conflict. Set against the backdrop of American history, politics, and law, God on Trialrelates the stories of six recent cases in communities that have become battlefields in Americas growing religious wars.
