The Lustre Of Our Country
The American Experience Of Religious FreedomeBook - 1998
This work offers a fresh approach to a freedom that is often taken for granted in the United States, yet is one of the strongest and proudest elements of American culture: religious freedom. In this book, Judge John T. Noonan asserts that freedom of religion, as James Madison conceived it, is an American invention previously unknown to any nation on earth. The book demonstrates how the idea of religious liberty is central to the American experience and to American influence around the world.
