This is the story of religious freedom in America, told though the lens of today’s hottest culture war social issues and revealing how Supreme Court decisions over the years have brought us to this most divided point in our nation’s history. Beginning with the headline-grabbing issues of the day--the study of evolution and prayer in public schools, public displays of the Ten Commandments, pluralism, secular vs. religious claims about the founding of this country--Sekulow makes the provocative case for the acceptance of God in the public square, using historical precedent and a tradition of civil religion and Christian symbolism in America.
This is a book that traces a dramatic shift in perception, from the early legal definitions of America as a “Christian nation,” to the more recent Establishment questions that built a wall between Church and State, to the modern cases that have increasingly divided Americans and make national headlines today.
America v. God argues forcefully that this country must hold to its historical foundations and maintain the presence of God in the public square and is a warning not to pull out any more of the threads that hold together the fabric of our society.

In February 2005, TIME magazine named Sekulow one of the “25 Most Influential Evangelicals” in America and called the ACLJ “a powerful counterweight” to the ACLU. Sekulow’s strong opinions on judicial nominations-including vacancies at the Supreme Court-and his position as one of the influential “Four Horsemen” who advise President Bush on all senior court nominees, have received top news coverage, including a front-page story in The Wall Street Journal (5/17/05) and a recent profile in US News and World Report (7/25/05). He appears regularly on top national and political television programs on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, CNBC, and PBS. He is the host of the daily radio program “Jay Sekulow Live!” which is broadcast on more that 550 radio stations reaching 1.5 million listeners, and is the host of the weekly television program “ACLJ This Week” that airs on the top Christian TV networks airing in the evenings at primetime in 46 states. Sekulow has presented numerous arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court with pending cases on the court calendar in the coming months.
