“Comprehensive, balanced, and extremely readable, Warren A. Nord has written the best introduction to the vexing issue of the role of religion in public schools. It is hard to imagine a more reasonable book, yet it is also full of fresh insights and driven by a vision of fairness to some provocative conclusions.”--Teaching, Theology, and Religion
"[A] thoughtful analysis of religion's role in public education. . . . Nord persuasively argues that educators in public institutions exclude religious points of view."--Commonweal
"Nord clearly wants to engage the interested general reader, not the specialist, and his conversational writing style helps him succeed."--Christian Science Monitor
"An important achievement that should become a standard reference in years to come."--Washington Times
"This is a book and a set of proposals to be taken very seriously indeed."--Washington Post
"Nord writes about a serious public problem with clarity and fairness. For intelligent general readers who seek to understand historical, constitutional, and philosophical implications of the current cultural war over religion and public education."--Choice
