Summary
"Traces the evolution of school-prayer battles from the early 1800s, when children were beaten or expelled for refusing to read the King James Bible, to current disputes over prayer at public-school football games ... explores the enduring tension between people of goodwill who wish the schools to promote majoritarian beliefs, and equally well-meaning (and often religious) people who deplore any government influence in religious matters."--Jacket
