Adventist Forum Presents: The Religious Roots of the First Amendment

Adventist Forum presents "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment:
Dissenting Protestants and the Separation of Church and State."  The
presentation is by Nicholas P. Miller, Associate Professor of Church
History and Director of the International Religious Liberty Institute at
Andrews University.  Come to Chan Shun Hall on the campus of Andrews
University Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. and join in the
discussion.

Nicholas P. Miller is a lawyer (JD, Columbia University) who has worked
on a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He is currently
an associate professor of church history at Andrews University Seminary,
where he also directs the International Religious Liberty Institute.

His book "The Religious Roots of the First Amendment: Dissenting
Protestants and the Separation of Church and State" was published by
Oxford University Press in May 2012. Miller argues that traditional
understandings of the genesis of the separation of church and state rest
on assumptions about 'Enlightenment' and the republican ethos of
citizenship. 

Professor Miller is also an editor of Homosexuality, Marriage, and the
Church: Biblical, Counseling, and Religious Liberty Issues published by
Andrews University Press.

Adventist Forum is open to the public.  All are welcome.  For
