Church-State Cooperation Without Domination: A New Paradigm for Church-State Relations

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Jun 25, 2010 - Political Science - 288 pages
Church-State Cooperation Without Domination os a historical review highlighting the antecedents leading up to present day church-state relations in the United States. Successful models of cooperation between government and faith-based agencies are described with the final chapter suggesting a new model for church-state relations that protects religious freedom while preserving the principle of limited government involvement with religion. It isn't a question of if or should government and religion mix. They already do, but there is little consensus on how to balance separation and cooperation. This book addresses those issues.
