Abstract:

"In America's ever more diverse society, questions of belief show up with increasing frequency in schools, voluntary associations, town meetings, and the marketplace. Religion in American Public Life explores from several perspectives how the many different voices can be heard, and managed, in the public square. Among the specific issues discussed by the contributors are: How should we address religion in public education? How should the First Amendment guarantees apply to current controversies concerning religion in public life? Should state-religious institution partnerships be encouraged? How should we live with our differences on such issues as sexual orientation, abortion, and physician-assisted suicide?

What role should religion play in business and corporate governance, not-for-profit organizations, academia, citizen action, and science and technology?"--BOOK JACKET.
