A Bibliophile's Celebration of the Winter Solstice

Rob Boston has a post at the blog of Americans United for Separation of Church and State entitled "Good Gifts: Holiday Ideas For The Church-State Separationist On Your List." You can go over there for short descriptions of the books or just look through the links below:

Piety & Politics: The Right-Wing Assault on Religious Freedom by Barry W. Lynn.
The Godless Constitution by Isaac Kramnick and R. Laurence Moore,
Under God by Garry Wills,
The Court and the Cross by Frederick S. Lane
The Founding Fathers and the Place of Religion in America by Frank Lambert.
Why the Religious Right Is Wrong About Separation of Church & State by Rob Boston
James Madison on Religious Liberty by Robert S. Alley
Thomas Jefferson's The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (also known as the "Jefferson Bible.")
Moral Minority by Brooke Allen
The Devil in Dover by Lauri Lebo
Ellery's Protest: How One Young Man Defied Tradition and Sparked the Battle Over School Prayer by Stephen D. Solomon

There is also a DVD from Americans United "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Separation of Church and State… But Were Afraid to Ask!" along with a companion book titled First Freedom First.

Thanks for doing that. Do you have favorites on the list?
I'm ashamed to say that I haven't read any of them, though Garry Wills is usually reliable and his will be the first I'll probably pick up.
