Counter Michael J. Perry has become well-known as a commentator on the role of faith in the public life of a liberal democracy over the past twelve years. Perry argues in this new book that political reliance on religious faith violates neither the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution nor, more broadly, the morality of liberal democracy. However, he also believes that religious believers sometimes have good reasons to be wary about relying on religious beliefs in making political decisions.
