Summary "Defending Faith is a study of conservative Christian legal advocacy groups--the American Center for Law and Justice, the Center for Law and Religious Freedom, and the Thomas More Law Center, among others. Daniel Bennett explains how these organizations advocate for issues central to Christian conservatives, demonstrates how interest groups pursue common goals while maintaining unique identities, and tells a story of the growth and development of an influential legal community in the United States"-- Provided by publisher.
