Professor McClay joined in a talk about the book he co-edited, Religion Returns to the Public Square: Faith and Policy in America, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. The book addresses the ways in which religion has recently emerged in the arenas of politics, education, and social organizations. The editors argue that America is moving away from a distinction between church and state and that religion, its institutions, and its leaders have increasingly emerged as topics of debate in many public and political forums. Co-editor Wilfred McClay was joined by E.J. Dionne, Jr. who wrote the foreword to the book. After the presentation, the two speakers answered questions from members of the audience. close
