Description


God Versus Caesar reviews and analyses the judicial development of the free exercise of religion clause, from its protection for belief and certain forms of worship to its guarantee of religiously motivated behavior. This book also provides guidelines for the future direction of judicial review in free exercise cases and examines law as it develops in response to changing social values and policy. Sheffer answers how, where, and why lines are drawn between the guarantee of free exercise of religion and the right of society to protect its citizens from activity injurious to their health, welfare, safety, and morals.
