The courts have chipped away at laws banning prayer in school- bolstered restrictions on womens access to abortion and birth control- and given legal approval to President Bushs use of federal funds for religious organizations. In the near future, the courts will surely decide on a host of hot-button issues, from stem cell research and gay rights to religious expression on government property and euthanasia.In The Court and the Cross, legal journalist Frederick Lane uses a mix of legal history and political analysis to expose, in laymans terms, the Religious Rights high court offensive.

He clearly explains the Supreme Courts nomination process and shows how the Religious Rights leadership, including Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell, created the vision that led to the movements massive growth and its powerful influence on the nations judiciary.This timely book details the Rights unrelenting efforts to destroy the wall separating church and state and, ultimately, to do nothing less than declare the United States a Christian nation.The Court and the Cross is a commendable and sobering account of the scope and significance of the Christian Rights incessant efforts to make a mockery of core constitutional principle.

Not only does it elegantly review key Supreme Court cases about religion, but points to the extensive range of social issues the Right is working to get up for examination before our highest court, an increasingly conservative body. If you are not sure that the decisions of the Supreme Court matter much to you in your daily life, read The Court and the Cross and I guarantee youll be rethinking that position. The Courts erosion of your individual religious freedom and the dictates of your conscience has already begun.—Rev. Barry Lynn, author of Piety & Politics and Executive Director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State
