Reviews & Endorsements

“Without freedom of conscience the whole history of the nation-and world-might be very different. We are lucky that Waldman has written this compelling study of the most essential breakthrough of modernity; the right to believe, or not, as one wishes. This is a great book about a monumental issue."
“Sacred Liberty is an important and fascinating book full of riveting stories, provocative insights, inspiring heroes, and some serious warnings. The American model of religious freedom should be the envy of the world.  But if we don't understand how we made this great 'invention,' we could easily squander the achievement."
“This is such a clear, valuable, surprising, timely and wise book. Sacred Liberty provides the vivid, detailed, little-known stories of the people who first defended the principle of  religious freedom, and have continued to re-shape and revive it in dramatically changing circumstances,"
