I grew up in an evangelical Christian family and went to an evangelical college (Wheaton), but my religious and political views have moved far away from my background. I'm not ready to embrace the vitriol of the so-called new atheism (Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, the later Christopher Hitchens), nor do I want to be one of those "spiritual, but not religious" folks, so I was intrigued by Jacques Berlinerblau's "How to be Secular." Secular is a bad word in Christian circles and often synonymous with atheist, anti-Christian, and humanist, which is also a bad word. Georgetown professor Berlinerblau tries to reclaim the term, outline the history of the separation of church and state, and point a way forward that both the religious and non-religious can agree upon. It's a difficult task, and he's only partially successful, but he should be lauded for his efforts and for those who have moved away from religious, there's a lot to think about.

Well written if a bit precious. But too USA centric for me.

Freedom of religion cannot exist without freedom from religion.
