Editorial Reviews

"A superb addition to the growing consensus that requires much more than mere toleration of one another's distinct approaches to an often hidden God. Kmiec and his partners in this dialogue show us how to attain to careful respect for important differences in our approaches to God and to whatthat means in our daily lives." --Edward McGlynn Gaffney, Professor of Law, Valparaiso University
