When John Whitehead founded The Rutherford Institute in 1982, the Christian legal aid group was interested only in the First Amendment's religion clause, serving clients only when religious freedom was at stake. But by the mid 1990s, religious rights were but one subset of a whole host of freedoms threatened by an invasive government.In Suing for America's Soul R. Jonathan Moore examines the foundation and subsequent practices of The Rutherford Institute, helping to explain the rise of conservative Christian legal advocacy groups in the late twentieth century. He delves into the causes the group has gotten behind, including public school students who want to read the Bible or pray at school, equal time for creation science and evolution in biology classes, and the rights of government to display nativity scenes on public property. Moore exposes the effects good and bad--that such legal activism has had on the evangelical Protestant community.Thought-provoking and astute, Suing for America's Soul will be welcome to any seeking to understand the relationship between law and religion.
