I’ve read a lot of entertaining travelogues and informative studies of Supreme Court cases, but never at the same time. Think Sarah Vowell’s Assassination Vacation meets Peter Irons’ The Courage of Their Convictions. Thank God for Holy Hullabaloos.—Pamela Karlan, founding director of the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Stanford University
“Religion and politics are the two things we are not supposed to talk about. Jay Wexler does—with deadpan humor. We need to tone down the anger over these issues, and he shows the way.”—Alan Wolfe, author of Does American Democracy Still Work?
“The sharpest, the most insightful, the most side-splittingly funny book on law since—Supreme Courtship!” —Christopher Buckley, author of Supreme Courtship and Thank You For Smoking
“A fascinating and frequently funny journey through many of the sites of the greatest church and state squabbles in modern American history.”—Barry Lynn, author of Piety & Politics
