""Given the importance of the Pennsylvania story to the development of religious liberty in America, it is surprising-as J. William Frost notes-that this story has received so little attention. Here, at last, we have the vital narrative offered in impressive and illuminating detail.""
-Edwin S. Gaustad, American Historical Review
""William Penn incorporated his concept of religious liberty into the new commonwealth, but succeeding generations of Pennsylvanians have modified his beliefs and practices. [Frost] has written a comprehensive, scholarly volume tracing the changes from the time of Penn to the Civil War period, with an epilogue that describes the creation of a new approach to religious liberty by the federal courts in the years since World War II.""
