MEDIA REVIEWS
On a topic that tends to attract more heat than light, this remarkably expansive volume, which encompasses everything from Native American traditions to twenty-first-century developments, brings clarity and a diversity of perspectives to this important matter. Randall Balmer, Ethics Institute at Dartmouth This work offers a timely addition to the Wiley Blackwell Companion volumes on religion. Forty concise and crisply written essays, crafted by established scholars in the field, tender a fresh look at traditional topics such as the relation of church and state. But they also range far more widely, examining the role that religion has played in every aspect of American political life. We see the vibrant and often contentious interplay of impulses toward "holy order" and "sacred liberty" from the beginning to the present. The book provides a rich resource for students, general readers, and specialists in the field. Grant Wacker, Duke Divinity School With contributions from established figures as well as emerging scholars in the field, the Companion to Religion and Politics in the US will quickly become an indispensable reference work for those probing the complex pasts, presents, and futures of religion and American politics. Chapters take up a wide array of historical, conceptual, political, and legal concerns, and explore the dynamics of religion and politics including, but by no means limited to, the contested relationship between church and state. Andrew R. Murphy, Rutgers University
