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.
