In Their Own Words

"The emergence of the Law and Religion Program has coincided with a resurgence in this country of the debates about the role of religion and the debate in the public square. The program has not taken a single ideological stance, but it has made possible the debate of faith in the public square, the relationship of moral concepts to legal obligations, the role of the church and the state and the state in the church. The program has made possible those debates with incredible historical accuracy and with an understanding of the nuances of the differences among the faith traditions."
