I have read a number of books on America's religious history particularly in the Colonial and Revolutionary periods and this is one of the best by far. Even though it is brief, it is comprehensive in scope, giving just enough details to give a full picture of the issues without being superficial. The book is scholarly (Hutson is the Chief of the Manuscripts Division at the Library of Congress), yet very readable and in fact enjoyable. I could not put the book down. Hutson makes a good case that the Supreme Court cases in the late 19th century and mid-20th century have misread the issue employing Jefferson's phrase in a way that ignores contrary evidence.

In many ways, the story of America is a tale of the long and tortuous struggle to define and defend the rights of conscience: religious liberty as America's 'first freedom.
