Review quote

"The range of perspectives offered on the vexed relationship between law and religion is one of the strengths of this book. It clearly illustrates the multiple dimensions involved, the lack of easy solutions, and the many defensible positions that one can take. Law and Religious Pluralism in Canada will contribute significantly to the literature and debates on this pressing issue. - Peter Beyer, professor of Religious Studies, University of Ottawa, and author of Religions in Global Society"
