Seamus' book is great. Marci Hamilton's God & the Gavel is also very good.
Although broader than just religious liberty, Phil Johnson's Reason in the Balance is, in my opinion, perhaps the one book everyone interested in the ongoing religious culture war should read.

In my relatively unbiased opinion, the best and most entertaining book out there is The Right to Be Wrong: Ending the Culture War Over Religion in America written by Becket Fund founder Kevin Seamus Hasson.

Subject: Book recommendations for non-lawyers who want to be informed
What books would you recommend for non-lawyers such as myself who want to have as full an understanding of the first amendment religion clauses as they can outside of being able to attend law school? I'm thinking something that would not only address the significant cases and issues, but would also give a fair and unbiased explanation of both the strict constructionist perspecitve as well as the (for lack of the proper term) "Constitution as a living document" school of thought. I have Stephen Carter's books, "Culture of Disbelief" and "God's Name In Vain". What else should I look for?
